Dura gilaran dayra ladura
Dura gilaran dayra ladura

John Francis Dooley wipe the sleep from your eyes
And embrace the light
You have slept now for a thousand years
Beneath starless nights
And now it's time for you to renounce the old ways
And see a new dawn rise

In former days masks were raised
When the god came down from off of the mountain
And the sacrifice was made
For they knew the day of wrath was fast approaching

Just like yesterday
Before the war

John Francis Dooley the scapegoat has run
All our sins are disowned
And now it's time for you to take off your mask
And cross the Rubicon

If you and I were one within the eyes of our designs
It would still not change the fact of our leaving
For tonight we must leave with the first gentle breeze
For the Isles of Ken we are assailing

Just like Ulysses
On the open sea
On an Odyssey
Of self discovery
