Blinded by the beauty of the rising sun
Sitting in amongst the purple heather
The sight of it was something that just left me stunned
A sunrise undiluted by the weather!

By the beauty
Of the sunrise

Blinded by the beauty of the rising sun
I thought about the people still in bed
Gazing at the tapestry the sun had spun
From ultraviolet through to infrared

By the beauty
Of the sunrise

And all too soon it was over
The sun had risen to the sky
As i sat in the heather and the clover
Shaking my head to clear my eyes

For i was blinded
By the beauty
Of the sunrise


from The Tears Of Xerxes, released September 30, 2013
