I once was gold
And I retained all the words I was told
I once was free
But I sang glorious in my chains like the sea
I once was fire
In the shape of my wisdom and fear and lies
I once was gone
And bold in the face of the sun that I shone
I once was lost
Broad were the rivers that I crossed to arrive
I once once was saved
Though I lay many years in my grave


from Waxwing, released August 27, 2005
