Simeon, he was a man,
Held his heart out in his hand --
A hollow land of autumn breeze...

Evenings in the brittle rain,
Leaves that fill the barren plain
With simple embroideries...

In the temple yesterday,
Was a man, who came to pray,
Who couldn't stay and couldn't leave.

So, he fell down on his knees,
Sued for grace and sued for peace,
A little ease, and not to grieve...

Marion, she met a man,
Took her to Jerusalem,
To take a stand, escape a scene...

To wander in the honey sea,
Drink the milk of Memory,
And never be herself again.

In the temple yesterday,
Was a woman came to pray
Who couldn't say, and couldn't see.

So, she fell down on her knees,
Sued for grace and sued for peace,
Sued the priest -- to set her free.

Lo -- lo and behold.
Lo -- lo and behold...
