In the abyss of space
From the center of time
A superman race
Moves the serpent to climb

The journey has lasted
Seven ages or more
Life after life
Must pass through the door

The secret revealed
When you leave your cave
Is a glory of thunder
And life from the grave

The serpent is rising
Uncoiling in your spine
Bringing you light
From the depths of your mind

The people have massed
In the center of town
We drink from a glass
And the world turns around

The serpent is rising
Uncoiling in your spine
Bringing you light
From the depths of your mind

The serpent is rising
Uncoiling in your spine
Bringing you light
From the depths of your mind

The serpent is rising
Uncoiling in your spine
Bringing you light
From the depths of your mind
