Original video
Yes, they're real
(No, they can't be!)
Yes they are, I've seen them walking
Out beyond the wooded garden
Through the town and through the valley

Yes, they're real
(No, they can't be!)
Yes they are—you are not hearing—
For I say I've seen them drinking
In the "Tavern of the Moon."

Steel and maille and gilded crossbow,
Feather of the ancient wind bird,
Wide as wonder, tall as starlight,
Lords of earth and lords of fire,
Life the love that they desire
Lords of earth and lords of fire,
Life the love that they desire

Yes they're real
(No, they can't be!)
Come with me and see what might be
(I'm afraid!)
O you are childish,
Nothing kills that does not know ye!

Come ye now
(No, I fear thee!)
Did I say that I would lead thee?
(We have walked too far this night, out beyond the firelight!)

Come ye now
(No, I fear thee!)
Come with me, for I will take ye
Dancing now with all my brothers—
I am real and like the others!

Yes they're real,
"No!" you told me,
"Yes," I said, "you should believe me,"
Now we have you wrapped in darkness,
Now we keep you, never leaving
Trade your life for not believing!

Steel and maille and gilded crossbow,
Feather of the ancient wind bird,
Wide as wonder, tall as starlight,
Lords of earth and lords of fire,
Life the love that they desire
Lords of earth and lords of fire,
Life the love that they desire!
