4.6 The Day the Pagans Died
A long, long time ago, I can still remember
How the pagans used to help us smile,
And I knew that if I beat my drum, all the folks were glad to come
And maybe they'd be happy for a while.
But now these Christians have us hurting. All the pagans they're converting.
No one's at the solstice; they're in their towns at Christmas.
They don't remember Odin's tales; they memorize their Gospels.
The goddes will remember well the day the pagans died.
They were singin' "Bye, bye to the trees and the sky.
Forget our holy circles; we will worship inside."
The village priestess had to sneak off and hide
Singin', "This'll be the day that I die."
And I met a bard of pagan tunes. I asked her to draw down the moon,
But she just smiled and turned away.
And I went out to a sacred grove to try and find someone I'd know,
But not a word was spoken. The holy stones were broken,
And the tri-gods I admired the most, the Huntsman, Goddess and their host
Lived in secret down the coast, the day the pagans died.
