Sybil's Song

This song is by Anne Harlan Prather and appears on the compilation Space Heroes and Other Fools (1983) by Julia Ecklar, Anne Harlan Prather and Leslie Fish.

Chosen by the Lady for the Lady's work
Across cold seas I sail
To a city as ancient as this world's birth
Whose destiny must prevail.

Oh ask me a question
I'll tell you the answer
Ask me to speak
And I'll tell no lies
Servant of infinity
Truth is my master
Knowledge a mistress
I may not deny.

The season's coming 'round again
The Summer Star rises high
The Black Gate's closed
We're alone again
And the time for change is right.
The sea must sing her song again
In a voice quicksilver bright
And those who understand her words
Will rule in endless might.

Oh ask me a question
And I'll give you the answer
Ask me to speak
And I'll tell no lies
Servant of infinity
Truth is my master
Knowledge a mistress
I may not deny.

The immortals who lived at life's great cost
Must die with winter's cold
And Summer's life must rule again
As in the times of old.
And winter's price will be paid by those
Who killed for lust and lies.
For the ancient knowledge cannot be lost
Lest the seeds of chaos rise.

Oh ask me a question
I'll give you the answer
Ask me to speak
And I'll tell no lies
Servant of infinity
Truth is my master
Knowledge a mistress
I may not deny.

Daughter of no woman
Child of no man
A Summer raised, not born
I am a pawn in Destiny's hand
By a saddened universe torn.
They've asked me the question
And I may not answer
My beginnings I may not share.
Still black Fate knows
And her ancient master
Demands I return there.

Oh ask me a question
I'll give you the answer
Ask me to speak
And I'll tell no lies
Servant of infinity
Truth is my master
Knowledge a mistress
I may not deny.

Across seven worlds
The black sands of time
Roll endless as the sea
Though driven from home by a twist of Fate
I must return to see.
Winter dead and Spring begun.
Summer's power received.
Yes I must return to my home again
To set my people free.

Oh ask me a question
I'll give you the answer
Ask me to speak
And I'll tell no lies
Servant of infinity
Truth is my master
Knowledge a mistress
I may not deny.
