Be joyful, my friends! You will now enter the Tunnel of Light. Let brilliance suffuse your
souls! Make your choice. Your path is incandescend.

[highlander]
don't offer me the light, when I only know the darkness
thats where I want to hide
there's a chill in my bones, that I recognise from another life
that's why I'm heading home

[egyptian] ra - heliopolis, ka - anenti
[roman] into Elysium!
[knight] the isle of Avalon!
[egyptian] in the tunnel of light

[highlander]
don't tempt my heart with hope, in the shadows of broken promises
I guard my dreams
in the bend of a swollen river, in the roots of weeping willows I choose to lie

[egyptian] ra - heliopolis, ka - anenti
[roman] into Elysium!
[knight] the isle of Avalon!
[indian] the legend has begun!
[futureman] our one and only sun!
[egyptian] in the tunnel of light

[egyptian] ra - heliopolis
[highlander] I rest my broken heart, where the willows weep
[egyptian] ka - anenti
[roman] into Elysium
[knight] the isle of Avalon!
[indian] the legend has begun
[egyptian] in the tunnel of light

[highlander]
I will lay me down
I will rest my head
I will close my eyes

    General CommentFrom the previous song, "The Decision Tree," the Highlander has chosen to be the one who lays down his long and weary life to allow the other seven to go on to the Electric Castle. The others, the Egyptian, Roman, Knight, Indian, and Futureman, are the most empathetic and outgoing of the others and offer their prayers for the Highlander's passing into the most beautiful of afterlives they each know. The Barbarian offers no good wishes because he doesn't respect the Highlander for giving up, and the Hippie is too far into his own inner world to really contribute.
