lyrics

Facing ever east towards a darkened desert sky
The Sphinx is still waiting for the spring sun, to arise
Hewn out of the living rock so long ago
A new dawn to behold

As the sap starts to rise, and the sun climbs aloft
The earth wakes from its sleep, and the Sphinx greets the equinox

Why they asked the question no one will ever know
They looked up at the heavens; there were creatures to behold
And as the winter turned to spring
The lion brought forth the hopes of men

As the sap starts to rise, and the sun climbs aloft
The earth wakes from its sleep, and the Sphinx greets the equinox

The precession of the constellations over time
Means the body of a lion and the face of a god
Staring at its own reflection, in the age of Leo
But that was long ago, 10,000 years

As the sap starts to rise, and the sun climbs aloft
The earth wakes from its sleep, and the Sphinx greets the equinox

Sculpted at a time when the desert land was green
Rain fell from the sky and what’s now is dry was streams
A time before the deserts came
A time to believe

As the sap starts to rise, and the sun climbs aloft
The earth wakes from its sleep, and the Sphinx greets the equinox
