Kris Kristofferson - Easter Island lyrics
Guardin' the carcas we stripped and divided To carve up and covet they wait there alone Keepin' the secret the rest have forgotten And starin' in silence from sockets of stone. Built and obeyed with the best of intentions Stranger than truth and as lost and alone Stranded like dogs in a star-spangled manger No good to nothin' not even their own. Holy-o-my-God I can't see the stars in the skies For the sun in my eyes. She's like a dream that a world quit believin' Caught in the action back to the sea How many more might have come from that mountain Barely the creatures they struggled to be. Surely the death of so grand and illusion Left us with legends too great to ignore Stone cut survivors of ancient dimensions Lost in the wonder they came to explore. Holy starlight far brighter than the sun in your eyes Singin' Thy will be gone Holy starlight far brighter than the sun in your eyes Singin' Thy will be gone...
