MAYA (Robin Williamson) The Incredible String Band - 1967 The dust of the rivers does murmur and weep Hard and sharp laughter that cuts to the bone Ah, but ever face within your face does show Going gladly now to give himself his own And twelve yellow willows shall fellow the shallows Small waves and thunder be my pillow Upon the gleaming water two swans that swim And every place shall be my native home The east gate like a fortress dissolve it away The west gate like a prison O come break it down Island I remember living here Wandering beneath the empty skies In time her hair grew long and swept the ground And seven blackbirds carried it out behind It bore the holy imprint of her mind As green-foot slow she moved among the seasons The great man, the great man, historians his memory Artists his senses, thinkers his brain Labourers his growth Explorers his limbs And soldiers his death each second And mystics his rebirth each second Businessmen his nervous system No-hustle men his stomach Astrologers his balance Lovers his loins His skin it is all patchy But soon will reach one glowing hue God is his soul Infinity his goal The mystery his source And civilisation he leaves behind Opinions are his fingernails Maya Maya All this world is but a play Be thou the joyful player The wanderer no sense does make His eyes being tied in the true love's knot The trees perceive his soul Do not detain him long Dear little animal dark-eyed and small Caring for your fur with pointed paws This hawk of truth is swift and flies with a still cry A small sweetmeat to the eyes of night O dandelion be thou thine Reflecting the sun in sexual glory In every-changing tongues The every-changing story The book, man, bird, woman, serpent, sea, sun Blessed O blessed are they of the air Your eyes are the eyes Of the glad land Ye twelve that will enter the seasons The great ship, the ship of the world Long time sailing Mariners, mariners, gather your skills Jesus and Hitler and Richard the Lion Heart Three kings and Moses and Queen Cleopatra The Cobbler, the maiden The mender and the maker The sickener and the twitcher And the glad undertaker The shepherd of willows The harper and the archer All sat down in one boat together Troubled voyage in calm weather.
