Oraga,s Vision/A Tear With No End
Stay your hand O my Chief I bring a message for you And what are your tidings today, Oraga? I shall tell you, and please listen well! I have never slighted your counsel In that way you have served the people well Lately I have heard strange things in the air The birds seem to scream with a murderous rage I have seen them tearing each other with their talons So, I offered blood sacrifice I consulted the oracle of the drum I have thrown the bones and the knives And the answer comes clear, like the beat of a drum It is you that is bringing a curse upon the Lowara The altars and hearths of the people have all been polluted By the dogs and the birds that have fed on the corpse of your nephew Old woman you waste your insults on me The flesh of a traitor can't defile the Rom Save your tricks for the Gajo, you'll not earn your bribe today True counsel is a priceless gift And folly is a worthless gift True, and it seems you're infected with that plague Hear then, my saying for you Before the sun has set on this day My prophecy will ring true The flesh of your flesh will be laid in the clay O Dell is preparing to take his revenge on you The undead will rise for the purpose of tormenting you The heart of your heart will be stolen away from you The world is wide and wonderful But the wonder of all is man He changes the course of the rivers and streams And disfigures the face of the land He levels the forest to build his towns And plows up the meadow for fields He plunders the mountain for iron and coal To fashion the weapons, he wields The fish of the sea and the birds of the air He snares with a silken cord The beast of the wood, so wary and wild He slays with an iron sword The horse of the plain is caught to the rein And bent to his master's will The bullock is tamed, to the plow he is chained And forever, the fields he must till With reason and temperance, men of the state Establish the law of the land But the people will prosper for only so long As they honor the true God's commands Cursed is he, who consorts with a demon To sell out the soul of his kin For a life is a speck in the eye of God But a death is a tear with no end For a life is a speck in the eye of God But a death is a tear with no end For a life is a speck in the eye of God But a death is a tear with no end
