Instead of cursin' the darkness
Light a candle for where we're goin'
There's somethin' ahead, worth lookin' for

When the light of time is on us
We will see our moment come
And the livin' sole inside will carry on

It's a chance to give new meanin'
To every move we make
Through the caverns in the caves where we've come from

When the light of dawn is on us
We will see what we can be
And the ancient ones can sleep an easy sleep

In the hallways of the ages on the road to history
What we do now will always be with us

It's a chance to give new meanin'
To every move we make
In the caverns, in the caves where we come from

Instead of cursin' the darkness
Light a candle for where we're goin'
There's somethin' ahead, worth lookin' for

When the light of time is on us
We will see our moment come
And the livin' sole inside will carry on

Light a candle in the darkness
So others might see ahead
Light a candle in the darkness when you go
