Letras del disco de Steve Hackett 'Voyage of the Acolyte'

The Hermit

The mantle of
attainment

Weighs heavy on his shoulders

Guided by a lantern

Flickering he grows older

A refuge found in exile

He shuffles on in blindness

You'll take his hand, he'll lose himself

Bewildered by your kindness

Enshrouded by
darkness

A figure slowly forms

Through many years of banishment

No shelter from the storm

To find this slave of solitude

You'll know him by his star

Then take his band, be'll lose himself

Knowing who you are.


Star of Sirius

Above the colour
of amber stained evening
An audience danced
Led by a showering hand that brings water
To both sea and land
Unlock the door of night
Nebulous bright

Again renewed
by the vessels of Isis
You're ready to fly
Although the journey is still far from ended
You gaze at the sky
Above the cloudless night
Nebulous bright

He who knows love
knows who you are
Worlds you may find lit by a star

He who knows love
knows who you are
Worlds you may find lit by a star

Again renewed
by the vessels of Isis
You're ready to fly

He who knows love
knows who you are
Worlds you may find lit by a star.


Shadow of the Hierophant

Veiling the nighshade
bride stalks a flower revealed
Nearing the hour make haste to their threshold concealed

Lost in thought
in search of vision
As the moon eclipsed the sun

Casting the same
steps glimpsing his own fate to come
Melt in the dream void from which he never can run

Lost in thought
in search of vision
As the moon eclipse the sun

Tears fill the
fountains failing their promise to heal
Rippling the waters mirror an ended ideal

Deep in thought
but robbed of vision
As the moon eclipse the sun.
