The Serpent And The Dove

This song is by Lisa Gerrard and appears on the album The Black Opal (2009).

Once there was a secret union
A serpent and a dove
Enchanted by their beauty
They found a perfect love
Although the garden
Was lost to them
They sought a purity
They're shown by
The sunlight
A gate into the sea
A home there
To be
There they lived beyond all reason
Acquainted by their dreams
But one in true affection
Their souls would be redeemed
The dolphin song
Fell sweetly on their ears
In sacred tears
They called for
Our saviour
To cast away their fears
They prayed there
For years
Once there was a sacred union
A dolphin and a whale
The purity within them
No other could avail
The song incited
A peace within
Their frail and gentle ways
They softly
Embraced us
And sought the souls of sails
They praised us
In vain
Once there was a magic union
A beetle and a frog
Their songs were so enchanted
They mystified the fog
Although their singing
Was not the sweetest sound
They called the morning
And bore up a guardianship
On those unborn
Hence, warning
There was a frightening union
A sailor and a gun
They sought to seize them
And murdered just for fun
All their laughter
Bore tears to those afraid
They slayed and dared
That others would seize them
And leave them
Cold and scared
They wasted
And murdered
They wasted
And orphaned
