"Xavier" as written by and Lisa/perry Gerrard....
Fair Rosanna your vagrancy's a familiar tale.
Fraught with danger, the lives you led were judged profane.
Hatred enfolds us, inculcates our minds with it's heresy.
Laymen enfold us, clemency arise to set you free.

Fate, although Xavier has prayed that life giving waters may rain
Down on the souls of men to cure them of their ways.
These were the sins of Xavier's past, hung like jewels in the forest of veils.
Deep in the heart where the mysteries emerge

Eve bears the stigma of original sin.
Freedom's so hard, when we are all bound by laws
Etched in the scheme of natures own hand, unseen by all those who fail
In their pursuit of fate.

Although Xavier has prayed that life giving waters may rain
Down on the souls of men to cure them of their ways.
And as the night turns into day will the sun illuminate your way,
Or will your nightmares come home to stay.

Xavier's love lies in chains.
These were the sins of Xavier's past,
Hung like jewels in the forest of veils.

    General CommentBrenden revealed recently that this song is about Roseanna Xavier (one person), a fictitious character who is dealing with being a woman born into a man's world. For YEARS I wondered who this Xavier person was, and if it was a historical character. But Roseanna is the combined name of Brendan's mother and aunt.

    General CommentOne of my favorite DCD songs, this is hauntingly mesmerizing....its about Xavier ad how he is a sinner whois never forgiven (Etched in the seam of nature's own hand
    ), and must pay for the rest of his life for his sins and they will forever be used against him, to smear his name.

    General CommentEven the savior has sins...
    though he has traveled far into the mysteries,
    go in deep enough and you can see his flaws as well
