    the rain kept on falling
    and darkened the sky
    the dawn was to come with the sunrise
    revealing the shadows
    that passed through the mist
    the torchlight was flickering, the storm
    was chasing them on

    a procession of dark coats
    followed the star
    foretold to come since ages
    in silence they walked on
    crossing the lands
    on their way to bethlehem, to break the
    chains of the spell
    stone, they worshipped the stone
    in generation from father to son
    a star, a star is to come
    to light them way to the one who is born
    the leader he knelt there
    to greet the newborn
    holding his pendant before him
    teardrops were falling from his eyes as he said

    don't do as i did long ago

    into the sundown he returned
    the moon was rising and heaven burned
    like shadows disappeared the men
    and the black stone wielders were never seen again
    stone, they wielded the stone
    in generation from father to son
    a star, a star is to come
    and light them the way to the one who is born

    they came across the western sea
    with powers greater than needed
    the wizards commanded the lightning
    every creature knelt in for their will
    but they wielded the black stone with evil
    and their evil was cast back on them
    condamned to praise god forever
    'til his son was born to deliver
