lyrics

Send a rope down the well, down the well

Seamlessly a canopy repeating overhead
ends the wait for rainfall
Was all the while,
to flood the Nile

While a tortoise from the north is digging ditches tortuously
with a serpent, bent as blazes
to lead a stream
another mile

Fierce as fever, coursing river
Southern fishes breathe the water
A pitcher raised, a swell to spill
so send a pail on down the well

Wayward wanderer, turn away and turn the season
Father of waterway, built a bridge beyond all reason
Father of waterway, eons old, that age ascending
Drought I doubt will dry a mind, flooded with new paradigm
A pitcher raised, a swell to spill
so send a pail on down the well
A pitcher raised, a reigning age
so send the rain

Send a rope down the well, down the well

A signal to the ferryman, a sparkle on the shore
In the dark who'd ever dare the breaking shallows?
But soon, a waking arrow
splits the sky and sea
streaming spillway shepherding
Aquarius, so near to me
on the rise
It's on the rise
