Valley of Musk Lyrics

 

I come from the valley of musk

where we used to fast from speaking up

from dawn until dusk

silence was a must for survival

revival was taboo

but tattooed on the chests of those who

fear none who walk this Earth

we walk the path of the stranger

sing the song of the Moses sparrows

in the face of falcon Pharaohs

truth in the face of power

this is the hour where tyranny crumbles

see these devils tremble when they hear God’s name

feel the wind of change across your face

embrace it

let it gently sail our souls through these stormy seas

take us home

so we may kiss the soil

beneath our saints

that have been tainted by tyranny

for too long

but this is our valley

and we shall return

every broken hearted mother

exile and traveler

will break the chains

or remain a slave

afraid

till the day we die

but this is our valley

and we will send

prayers on the wings of angels

oil for their lamps to light their way

guide them through the night

in search of the day

when we will no longer be

afraid
