Horses are creatures who worship the earthAs they gallop on feet of ivoryConstrained by the wonder of dying and birthThe horses still run, they are freeMy body is merely the shell of my soulBut the flesh must be given its dueLike a pony that carries its rider back homeLike an old friend thats tried and been trueI had a vision of eagles and horsesHigh on a ridge in a race with the windGoing higher and higher and faster and fasterOn eagles and horses Im flying againEagles inhabit the heavenly heightsThey know neither limit nor boundTheyre the guardian angels of darkness and lightThey see all and hear every soundMy spirit will never be broken or caughtFor the soul is a free-flowing thingLike an eagle that needs neither comfort nor thoughtTo rise up on glorious wingsI had a vision of eagles and horsesHigh on a ridge in a race with the windGoing higher and higher and faster and fasterOn eagles and horses Im flying againMy body is merely the shell of my soulBut the flesh must be given its dueLike a pony that carries its master back homeLike an old thats tried and been trueMy spirit will never be broken or caughtFor the soul is a free-flowing thingLike an eagle that needs neither comfort nor thoughtTo rise up on glorious wingsI had a vision of eagles and horsesHigh on a ridge in a race with the windGoing higher and higher and faster and fasterOn eagles and horses Im flying again
