"Dance of the Seven Veils pt 1: Faithless" as written by and Nick Barrett....
An old man came here telling tales
Of days gone by and seven veils
A sanctuary for all the pedlars of the lie
But one by one the veils fall
Through the subtlety of time recall
The wounds they longed to kill
Would not be silent, be still

You were faithless in a twist of fate
You jumped the queue at Traitor's Gate
It's just my view but you know what I say is true

It was the month of the strawberry moon
The smell of apples and summer's bloom
Ten thousand horses could not drag you centre stage
To weary sailors the sirens sing
You hiding in the stage's wings
Forever clawing at your chains and your white feathers

You were faithless in a twist of fate
You jumped the queue at Traitor's Gate
And to the stars our world will rise
Forever bound and sealed
You were faithless in a twist of fate
You jumped the queue at Traitor's Gate
Each act and motion locked away
Will be known in the end
You were faithless in a twist of fate
You jumped the queue at Traitor's Gate
At last the veils have fallen down
They squirm like vipers on the ground
In time the power of passion's lust
Slips through your fingers and turns to dust
Naked now you too were deceived
And now you must stare into the eyes of the Gorgon

Here within the time we spent upon this mortal coil
Not knowing what it all meant
Our lives of pain and toil
And those still standing tall beyond the china wall
