  • O Mount Kailas, uncover me;
    come my restoration, wash my body clean
    I've been walking along a crooked path
    where the walls have fallen and broken me in half

    I'm telling you, I will not rest till I lay down my head
    I'm gonna go in the house of stone and light
    I shall not cry for the blind man I leave behind
    when I go in the house of stone and light,
    in the house of stone and light

    Holy Lady, show me my soul;
    tell me of that place where I must surely go
    Old man waiting at the gates for me,
    give me the wisdom, give me the key

    I'm telling you, I will not rest till I lay down my head
    In the house of stone and light
    I'll make my way, O gonna be such a beautiful day
    In the house of stone and light
    In the house of stone and light

    Let me in beneath my skin,
    yeah, yeah, oh oh
    In the house of stone and light
    It's been to long, my spirit's been at war
    Havasupai Shaman, let me be reborn
    And I will embrace the sun upon my face,
    come the day I awake the child inside
    in the house of stone and light
    And when I go I will op op open my eyes
    in the house of stone and light
    I will see you in the house of stone and light

    I'm looking in beneath my skin,
    yeah, yeah, oh oh
    In the house of stone and light, I'm coming inside
    In the house of stone and light, looking for the child
    In the house of stone and light, see myself got such a good shelter
    In the house of stone and light
    In the house of stone and light, I'm gonna let this child come washing of water
    In the house of stone and light, He's speaking softly to me
    (I must go there, to find my soul, yeah)
    In the house of stone and light, I can see so clearly now
    (I will go there to find my soul, yeah)
    In the house of stone and light, we'll keep on knocking on my door
    (I must go there, to find my soul, yeah)

    In the house of stone and light
    (I will go there, to find my soul, yeah)
    In the house of stone and light
    (I must go there, to find my soul, yeah) Writer/s: MARTIN PAGE
