optimistic myth.....

lyrics

From the mist in days of old- in a land that held a code
Storied down for all to hear- across the lands far and near
In their souls did shine a light- cross the sky it shone so bright
in these land of those that dwell- seek no heaven fear no hell

|The time is nigh - don't let it pass you by
Whatever comes your way - night will turn to day
So shine a light where darkness prevails
However dear it seems - cast your net of dreams
And shine a light where darkness prevails

When it came to darker times- brighter still their light would shine
If frail and old fell behind- those ahead would cast a line
From the elder the student learns- upon the hills their knowledge burns
Many tried the light to quell- many tried and many fell

Oooo it's time- the moon is high
Whatever comes your way - night will turn to day
So shine a light where darkness prevails
However dear it seems - cast a net of dreams
And shine a light where darkness prevails

Across the tarns to further lands- the code was passed to open hands
Through the mists of time it seems- others learn to live their dreams
Over sees they shone the light- across the skies they lit the night
Harmony had set it's berth- natures poised on mother earth

The time is high - don't let it pass you by
Whatever comes your way - night will turn to day
So shine a light where darkness prevails
Cast your net of dreams - however dear it seems
And shine a light where darkness prevails

Rant on, Children
In these recordings, The Ranters review subject matter of

healthy contempt for religious authority, as well as a touch of humor and optimism.

contemporary roots/blues titled “Rant on, Children”.
