The wind blows hard against this mountain side
Across the sea into my soul
It reaches into where I cannot hide
Setting my feet upon the road

My heart is old it holds my memories
My body burns agem like flame
Somewhere between the soul and soft machine
Is where I find myself again

*CHORUS*
Kyrie Eleison
Down the road that I must travel
Kyrie Eleison
Through the darkness of the night
Kyrie Eleison
Where I'm going will you follow
Kyrie Eleison
On a highway in the night

When I was young I thought of growing old
Of what my life would mean to me
Would I have followed down my chosen road
Or only wished what I could be



Oh...Oh...Oh
Oh...Oh...Oh
Oh...Oh...Oh
Oh...Oh...Oh

(repeat to end)

    Weird, in my previous post the greek letters are scrambled and i guess they won't let us capitaize words. That gobble-dee-gook in my post below should be these greek words:
    Kappa-upsilon-rho-iota-omega (koo-ree-oh)
    And
    Epsilon-lambda-epsilon-eta-sigma-omega (elle-ay-so).

    While "kyrie eleison" does mean "lord have mercy in greek, and though the song sounds wonderful, technically they are pronouncing it horribly wrong. "κυρίῳ Ἐλεήσω" is properly pronounced "koo-ree-oh elleh-ay-so" (in the biblical new testament koine greek), not "kyrie eleison". But i'm certain the lord appreciates the effort,and he certainly blessed them by making it a huge hit.

    Kyrie Eleison is Greek meaning LORD, HAVE MERCY
    (Lord, have mercy) down the road that I must travel
    (Lord, have mercy) through the darkness of the night
    (Lord, have mercy) where i'm going will you follow
    (Lord, have mercy) on a highway in the night
    he is asking the Lord for protection on his travel's
