Seven Veils (Live)

Here is a recent video of Peter performing the song for a Miracula session in San Diego, California, on October 31, 2012. Credit to Al V. for the upload.

The day grows older
The moon appears in a mirror
A fire side mirror
A distant walker
Hears the words
Go do good deeds
So you feel ok
The moon and the sun
Partners in light
Separating reflecting one light
Hearing this confusion wanes
No need to ask for wealth
Or one thing more now

But the night
Feels the same
As a cool hot summers climb
With the voice
Comes no shame
As the walker walks the line

The day grows older
The moon appears
Reflecting on his heart
Heavy weighed and pierced
The walker looks at his days
Bad deeds gone by
For which he must pay
The moon and the sun
Partners in light
Separating reflecting one light
Hearing this confusion wanes
Another image hits
The seven veils of mind

But the night
Feels the same
As a cool hot summers climb
With the voice comes no shame
As the walker hunts the line

But the night
Feels the same
As a cool hot summers climb
With the voice comes no shame
As the walker hunts the line

Moon, sun, hunt, line

Moon, sun, heart beat
