The Great Gates Of Kiev

This song is by Emerson, Lake & Palmer and appears on the live album Pictures At An Exhibition (1971).

Original video
Come forth from love's pyre
Born in life's fire
Born in life's fire
Come forth from love's pyre
In the burning of our yearning
For life to be
And in pain there will be gain
Of some new life

Stirring in salty streams
And dark hidden seams
Where the fossil sun gleams

They were sent from the gates
Ride the tides of fate
Ride the tides of fate
They were sent from the gates
In the burning of our yearning
For life to be

They were sent from the gates
Ride the tides of fate
Ride the tides of fate
They were sent from the gates
In the burning of our yearning
For life to be, oh to be, to be
