Can you hear the forest sing?
On a breath of damiana it calls his name
Seduced by his spirit once again
Cloven hooves beat upon the earth
He comes to us from Arcadia through the trees
The rush of his force felt upon the breeze
He comes on hooves of goat
He comes with songs that float on the wind
Let your senses know of him
Feel the earth it trembles underneath shaggy thighs
The sky is afire from his flashing eyes
If a nymph I’d follow him
Be a match for his wild carousing and bestial ways
And in the woods I too would play

    General CommentA fitting tribute to Pan, as seen in other songs. Very sensory, image provoking song.

    General CommentI.S. sums up Pan in a song, and really well at that. I love this band and this song is great.

    General CommentThere is also a part at the end that goes:

    "Oh great horned god of (something) past
    Lord of the hunt, lord of the dance
    From that place where you lie slain
    Come to me, return again
    Across the mountains, the fields, the sand,
    be once more upon this land
    Our great horned god of times gone by
    Lord of the earth, the sea and the sky
    Of the forest and of the glade
    be with us now and for all our days
    Herne (something) the (something) of Pan
    Be once more upon this land"

    General CommentIt's

    "Oh great horned god of ages past
    Lord of the hunt, Lord of the dance
    From that place where you lie slain
    Come to me, return again
    Across the mountains, the fields, the sands
    Be once more upon this land!
    Oh great horned god, of times gone by
    Lord of the earth, the sea and the sky
    Of the forest, and of the glade
    Be with us now, and for all our days
    Herne, Cernunnos, Karnayna, Pan
    Be once more upon this land... "
