I've split the sky ten million years
And I've been called a hundred different names.
I know the stories of the wind,
I've argued with the thunder and the rain ...
Till eagles flew from Urizen
Revealing how my mother's
face was horribly changed
By the apes ...
Where once shepherds dined the diamond
The ash of my pine is choking my streams
"O-Yam-Tsu-Mi"* I invoke your name.
But "O-Yam-Tsu-Mi" lay broken and ill
By the plight and the pain of his mountains
By his waterfall weeps
Once again ...
* Ancient Japanese God of Mountains
