Shining brightly
Pure crystal snow

Oh virgin
Shining brightly

Snow is crystal the fire is cold
I sit back watch the sun turn gold
In the morning love is healing
Warm the frost deep in my bones

The hunter sits on a pure white stallion
A hawk in flight bow in his hand
A deer approaches at the end of the forest
The arrow flies blood on the snow

Snow is crystal
Love is pure
I look out see a hawk in flight
The forest awaits me

I reel back watch the sun turn to gold
Earth in the mother
Said white
Sure crystal clear virgin white

Wilderness lost to us
Wilderness we reach out
Wilderness we must embrace you once more

Shining brightly snow is pure

When the barbarians approach on the frontiers
Of a civilization it is a sign of crisis in
That civilization when the barbarians come
Not with weapons of war but songs and

Icons of peace it is a sign of crisis is one
Of a spiritual nature that a spiritual nature
We have forgotten our spiritual nature
'Cause we are wrapped up in too much ****
All day all night

Kiss the earth I said mother said white
Earth ************ said white
White white

Shining shining bright
Shining shining brightly earth mother
Pure cool crystal virgin
Natural earth mother white
The snow virgin crystal white

City draggin' me down that's grey
Life is grey
Got to get the rhythm
Don't tell me what I'm feelin'
White white funky white
