The advent of arrows foreshadows the dream

(The serpent`s shaft of tourmaline)

The spark of grief for a life unseen

(It's the spiders eye of tourmaline)

A garland of glances

What might have been

(The brazen cymbals of tourmaline)

To stand aloof in a field of dreams

(The serpent knows: tourmaline)

The spider says I'll mark the seams

(But the serpent knows: tourmaline)
