"The Piper's Song" as written by and Xavier Bacash Lionel Towers....
In the night, I see a face that's in the dark
Through his eyes I see a light a shiny gold.
And this man he walks alone, singing songs of victory
When he sleeps, there's a struggle and the light begins to fade

Heaven tells the past; all he had, love and fear
He was stronger then, all he had was loving hands
Then one day the thunder struck, evil tears run down his face
And a change good to bad, good to bad

Where to run
Are you there, are you there
In the winter sun, he's dancing in the wind
Where to run
Are you there, are you there
In the wilderness look and you will find him

A mother weeps a child sleeps their broken hearts
Are bleedin' wine, just passing time, their horror shows
There at his grave at violet creek
The place where he began to seek
The evil tide that would dissolve him of all good that stood within

Heaven tells the past; all he had, love and fear
He was stronger then, all he had was loving hands
Then one day the thunder struck, evil tears run down his face
And a change good to bad, good to bad

Where to run
Are you there, are you there
In the winter sun, he's dancing in the wind
Where to run
Are you there, are you there
In the wilderness look and you will find him

Thunder thunder in the town
Thunder waiting for a sound
Tonight tonight we sing the piper's song

Thunder thunder in the town
Thunder waiting for a sound
Tonight tonight we sing the piper's song

Where to run
Are you there, are you there
In the wilderness look and you will find him
Where to run
Are you there, are you there
In the winter sun, he's dancing in the wind
Where to run
Are you there, are you there
In the wilderness look and you will find him

Tonight tonight we sing the piper's song

    Lyric CorrectionActually, going off the lyrics that are on their official website (gypsyandthecat.com), these should be the correct lyrics!

    --

    In the night, I see a face that's in the dark
    Through his eyes I see a light a shiny gold.
    And this man he walks alone, singing songs of victory
    When he sleeps, there's a struggle and the light begins to fade

    Heaven tells the past; all he had, love and fear
    He was stronger then, all he had was loving hands
    Then one day the thunder struck, evil tears run down his face
    And a change good to bad, good to bad

    Where to run
    Are you there, are you there
    In the winter sun, he’s dancing in the wind
    Where to run
    Are you there, are you there
    In the wilderness look and you will find him

    A mother weeps a child sleeps their broken hearts -
    Are bleedin' wine, just passing time, their horror shows
    There at his grave at violet creek
    The place where he began to seek
    The evil tide that would dissolve him of all good that stood within

    Heaven tells the past; all he had, love and fear
    He was stronger then, all he had was loving hands
    Then one day the thunder struck, evil tears run down his face
    And a change good to bad, good to bad

    Where to run
    Are you there, are you there
    In the winter sun, he’s dancing in the wind
    Where to run
    Are you there, are you there
    In the wilderness look and you will find him

    Thunder thunder in the town
    Thunder waiting for a sound
    Tonight tonight we sing the piper's song

    (repeat)

    Where to run
    Are you there, are you there
    In the wilderness look and you will find him
    Where to run
    Are you there, are you there
    In the winter sun, he’s dancing in the wind
    Where to run
    Are you there, are you there
    In the wilderness look and you will find him

    Tonight tonight we sing the piper's song

    (repeat to fade)

    Lyric CorrectionIn the night, see a face, it's in the dark
    Through his eyes see a light shining gold
    And this man, he walks alone, singing songs of victory
    When he sleeps, there's a struggle and the light begins to fade...

    Heaven tells the past, all he had: love and fear
    He was stronger then, all had: love and pain
    Then one day, thunder struck, evil tears run down his face
    And a change good to buy, good to buy

    Where to run?
    Are you there? Are you there?
    In the winter sun
    He's dancing in the wind

    Where to run?
    Are you there? Are you there?
    In the wilderness
    Look and you will find him

    A mother weeps, a child sleeps, their broken hearts
    A bleeding wine, just passing time, their horror shows
    They're at his grave, at Valid creek, the place where he began to see
    The evil tide that would dissolve him of the good that stood within

    Heaven tells the past, all he had: love and fear
    He was stronger then, all had: love and pain
    Then one day, thunder struck, evil tears run down his face
    And a change good to buy, good to buy

    Where to run?
    Are you there? Are you there?
    In the winter sun
    He's dancing in the wind

    Where to run?
    Are you there? Are you there?
    In the wilderness
    Look and you will find him

    Thunder, thunder in the town
    Thunder, waiting for a sound

    Where to run?
    Are you there? Are you there?
    In the wilderness
    Look and you will find him

    Where to run?
    Are you there? Are you there?
    In the winter sun
    He's dancing in the wind

    (Yours was mostly correct, with a few wrong words. This version seems to make more sense. I'm guessing this song is about a corrupted man, who does something horrid in his disconnected town. Valid creek? It must be based on real events...maybe?)

    Lyric CorrectionThere are a few words missing from the text still, I think?

    Are you there? Are you there?
    In the wilderness
    Look and you will find him

    Tonight, tonight, we sing goodbye to the sun
    Tonight, tonight, we sing goodbye to the sun
    Tonight, tonight, we sing goodbye to the sun
    Tonight, tonight, we sing goodbye to the sun
