Mama Lion

Album: Wind on the Water (1975)

  • The horns in the fog could be heard if not seen,
    Helping to guide the blind in a dream.
    And down by the seashore, a banquet she gave
    She was feeding and needing a soul she could save.

    Mama lion, mama lion, I'm starting to sink
    Beneath the sunshine and the icicles
    In the things that you think.

    There's a hole in my destiny
    And I'm out on the brink
    Mama lion, mama lion
    She bounces off the boulders, she runs on the rocks
    She's taking her time from her grandfather clocks.
    And over the border, and down on the land
    She's living in the future
    And it lies in her hand
