Xylon

No Before Became After yet, so I guess I have to wait until at least Monday, meaning at least one more of these tomorrow. This one's from Kerry Livgren's 1994 solo album When Things Get Electric and is highly appropriate for this week (it might have better for yesterday, but I didn't remember it until today).

Xylon (The Fury)

There's a garden in the valley
There's a beauty I could never conceive
In this paradise I dream of
I have known it though it's never been seen

I remember I was falling
Someone took me by the hand
I was burning in the sunlight
Now in the shade I stand

The Tree stands tall
It's mighty branches cover all
No wind can bend
It's majesty will never end

In it's shadow no illusion
In this place where there is never a fear
No sorrow or confusion
The enchantment of the glory is so near

I remember I was rising
And a light was in my eyes
I could feel my heart ascending
To this place I recognize

The Tree stands tall
It's mighty branches cover all
No wind can bend
It's majesty will never end

The fruit of love is falling from above
These roots run so deep and strong
With every breath a son
An endless new song

The Tree stands tall
It's mighty branches cover all
No wind can bend
It's majesty will never end
