Starwatcher in the night
Starwatcher bend the light

There's a rider on the road
There's calamity awaiting to unfold
There is poison in the well
There's the arbor of a distant ringing bells
It's says hold, hold, hold your ground

Skywatcher rules the day
Skywatcher cruel and fey

There are figures on the shore
At the laundromat, they're whispering of war
There's a lady on the stair
All a-shambling with thistles in her hair
Singing hold, hold, hold your ground
Hold, hold, hold your ground

Starwatcher in the night
