One day in the year of the fox
Came a time remembered well
When the strong young man of the rising sun
 Heard the tolling of the great black bell

One day in the year of the fox
When the bell began to ring
 Meant the time had cometh for one to go
To the temple of the king

 There in the middle of the circle he stands 
Searching, seeking 
With just one touch of his trembling hand
The answer will be found 

 Daylight waits while the old man sings  Heaven help me
And then like the rush of a thousand wings
It shines upon the one
And the day had just begun 

One day in the year of the fox came a time remembered well
When the strong young man of the rising sun
 Heard the tolling of the great black bell

One day in the year of the fox
When the bell began to sing
It meant the time had cometh for one to go
To the temple of the king

 There in the middle of the people he stands 
Seeing, feeling 
With just a wave of a strong right hand
He's gone
To the temple of the king

Far from the circle at the edge of the world 
He's hoping, wondering  Thinking back from the stories he's heard 
Of what he's going to see

 There in middle of the circle it lies
 Heaven help me
Then all could see by the shine in his eyes
The answer had been found 

Back with the people in the circle he stands 
Giving, feeling 
With just one touch of a strong right hand
They know
Of the temple and the king
