Promised Land

 

Words & Music: Bobby Shiflett

The enchantress weaves a myth of Mother Egypt in the mist
Isis sheds a tear
The son has Set, Osiris slain, only to be born again
As Horus in a Golden Dawn

What do you mean by this to aim the arrow and shoot to miss.
It’s in your kiss, the taste of eternal bliss
Rip my flesh and steal my breath
We make love and it’s just like death
There is nothing left. We’ve found the promised land.

Went to the west to compromise and saw the truth in Her eyes
I saw all that could be.
The sun will rise and Ra will see that She took every piece of me
To give love one more try

What does it mean to care when the scent of time is in your hair?
It’s in your kiss, the taste of eternal bliss.
Rip my flesh and steal my breath
We make love and it’s just like death
There is nothing left. We’ve found the promised land.
