Lyrics
The ripples in the river
giving way to waterfalls
The canopies of the forest
where the ghosts of
long forgotten gods
Lie at peace with simple things
And the parts of us that whisper
and say hey
this is a moonlight trip

It's an old abandoned route
And the dust of centuries
obscures the many signs
It is beyond the wit of man
To farm the sea
as he farms the land

Chandra, Chandra
Chandra's coriander
Chandra, Chandra
it's been a long time
since anybody walked this way

The mother of a genius
gets to know the golden rule
A generation passes
and her daughter gives birth to a fool
Tomorrow's child
a primitive soul
The ancient spirits whisper
and say
hey this is a moonlight ride

From the ruins and the filth
The arrogance and pride
the phoenix will rise
Witness to the path he chose
She walks with eyes
forever closed

Chandra, Chandra
Chandra's coriander
Chandra, Chandra
It's been a long time
since anybody walked this way
