Take your white horses
Ride them into the night
Over the hillside down the scree
To the lichen tree
Meet a man with a pitch fork who smiles He's been digging drains
His life will never be the same
Since you smiled at him
Walk into the mountain
Lay your head down, Earth-man
Transmission complete

We drive around the bends
Wind is howling over hills
Wolves are crying
As snow falls heavy overnight
In the day bright sunlight shining
Rest your bones
Moss will consume you
Your beard unfurl
Let your final retreat
Be a total letting go, Earth Man
Transmission complete

Stay away from the dark mile at night
Keep your head up high
Fiddle flying
As grace notes grow thick with delight
White horses
Gallop to guide you
Highland hearts aglow
With the light of your story and song
Trust yourself, be yourself
Trust yourself, be yourself
Earth Man

Let your last tears flow
Into waterways and lochs
Become a droplet of rain and return again
Falling free into the mist
Falling free into the mist

Crawl into your bed
Flowers will decorate your silver hair
Mountain-side mourning
Honeyed by sun, asleep by moonlight
In the day your spirit soaring
Turning into earth
Death inviting
The worms dance for you
Twa corbies will prune you
Twa fairies swoon you, Earth Man
