If you believe all your hope is gone
Down the drain of your humankind
The time has arrived 
You'll be waiting here as I was 
In a snow-white shroud 
Waiting underground

There by the ridge be a gathering beneath the pilgrim moon
Where we shall await the beat of your feet hammering the earth
Where the great ones tremble
In their snow-white shrouds
Waiting underground

If you seek the kingdom come, come along
Waiting by the ridge there'll be a gathering 
Beneath the pilgrim moon 
Where the [railroad] thunders

Oh where we shall await the beat of your feet hammering the earth
And as the earth resounds where the great ones tremble
And your humankind becomes as one
And then we will arise 
In our snow-white shrouds
When we'll be as one
But until that day we will just await
In our snow-white shrouds
Waiting underground
In our snow-white shrouds
Waiting underground

Waiting underground 
Waiting underground
Waiting underground
Waiting underground
Waiting underground
Waiting underground
