There's a ring around the moon tonight and a chill in the air 
And a fire in the stars that hang so near, so near 
There's a sound in the wind that blows through the wild mountain holds 
Like the sighs of a thousand crying souls, crying souls 
There's a time when the traveler is fated to find 
That insight has turned his gaze behind, behind
And the steps taken yesterday will beckon again 
And lead to his weary journey's end, his journey's end 
And in the passage from the cradle to the grave we are born, madly dancing 
Rushing headlong through the crashing of the days 
We run on and on without a backwards glance 
We run on and on without a backwards glance 
I cast my fate with the wife of Lot I turned my gaze around 
Knowing neither what I sought nor what was to be found 
Heeding weakness, feeding strength, oh life at length is frail 
I seek again the river's source through time's dark shadowed veil 
In the fast fading century, as we spin through the years 
I pray that our failing vision clears, our vision clears 
And in the passage from the cradle to the grave we are born, madly dancing 
Rushing headlong through the crashing of the days 
We run on and on without a backwards glance 
We run on and on without a backwards glance 
The places dash and the faces dart like fishes in a dream 
Hiding 'neath the murky banks of long forgotten streams 
The lines of life are never long when seen from end to end 
The future's never coming, and the past has never been 
There's a ring around the moon tonight, and a chill in the air 
And a fire in the stars that hang so near, so near
