Ring of Stones

 
Children Of Eden Cast Lyrics
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Ring of Stones CAIN
Abel! Momma! Poppa!
Come, Abel, quick, Abel, wait 'til I show you what I found!

ADAM
Cain! Before you say another word--

CAIN
No, Poppa, now Poppa, it's a thing that will astound you!
When I show you what I found, you won't believe!

ADAM
Eve!

STORYTELLERS
Over river wide and mountain tall
They traveled far beyond the waterfall
To a place and a day that would change them all
In the wasteland

ABEL
What are they?

CAIN
Stones! It's a ring of giant stones!
All of my life I think it's this I've been seeking
Pent up inside me like an underground spring
Finally a future, finally an answer
Written in a ring of stone
Finally proof of what I've always known:
We are not alone
Damned we may be
But we are not alone

EVE
All of a sudden, I can feel the old tingling
The urge to question, the itch to explore
I feel it once more

CAIN
Stones the size of giants
In a perfect circle

EVE
What could be their purpose
What could be their meaning?

CAIN
In a perfect circle

EVE
How could they have raised them?

ABEL
Must have taken hundreds

CAIN
Stones the size of giants

ABEL
How long have they been here?
Could we find the people?

CAIN, EVE, AND ABEL
Think about their knowledge, think about their science

CAIN
Think about their strength and skill
Scary they may be but still
I will never rest until

CAIN, EVE, AND ABEL
We have found these strange, bewildering
People who would build a ring of giant stone

CAIN
All of my life I think it's this I've been seeking
We are not alone

ADAM
The rain will be here soon
We'd best get back to the shelter of our glen

CAIN
But...what about these people?

ADAM
We will never speak of them again

EVE
Adam!

CAIN
Poppa, listen to me. For once, listen!

ADAM
Tear it all down, is that what you want?
Tear down everything we've worked to build
Trust our lives to a bunch of ragged strangers
You see the promise, Cain, but not the dangers

You think they're so wise, you think they're so skilled
But you've never heard them chanting in their ring of stones
Never seen them dancing here among the bones
Of a beast they've killed

CAIN
How do you know what they are?

ADAM
Because I've been here! I have seen them.

EVE
Adam!

CAIN
When were you here?

ADAM
The two of you were babies still
A long, long time ago

EVE
You never told me.

ADAM
It was better not to know
It would still be better not to know

CAIN (simultaneously)
All these years you've lied to us
All these years denied to us our future

EVE (simultaneously)
All these years you never told, never discussed
After all these years, couldn't you trust me?
Couldn't you trust me?
After all these years

ADAM (simultaneously)
We don't even know who their father was
Would our Father feel betrayed?
What if these are people he never made?
After all these years, to lose the chance he might forgive

ABEL (simultaneously)
Everybody, stop fighting!

EVE
All I see is you are still afraid
There was a time once, you were so brave then

ADAM
And look what we got, look what it brought us
Look at the lesson our bravery taught us
We are lost in the wilderness
We belong out here in the wilderness

CAIN
Well then stay here forever!
If that's how you want to live
But Abel and I could find comrades and wives
And learn what it is to have hope in our lives
Be part of a tribe, part of a clan
Not just one family
But a family of man

Come on, Abel!

ADAM
Abel! If you go now, you will never see me again.

ABEL
Oh Cain, please don't make me choose
Either way, it's more than I could bear to lose
Either way, it's ripping out my heart
This choice is tearing me apart

CAIN
Is this what it means to be a father?
Crushing the spirit of your children like an egg
Is that what it means to be a father?
Binding them to you with a chain around the leg!
