From the album Jim Moffatt at Crystal Gardens
It was just after dark 50 years ago when the Wizard went for a walk. Down to the shore where the waves did roar, a spirit to conger up. He uttered some strange incantations, then stood as if waiting reply. His hands to the sky, his arms spread wide. A fire was in his eye.
Then a spirit stood there beside him and demanded why do you call! The Wizard smiled and said “I'm lonely, me my power and that's all. You see it's been nigh on 10,000 years I've studied these thing I know and I've not know a warm touch just the occasional lost soul.
And the spirit smiles said “Yes it's been a while sense you've been whole. And you summoned me asking for relief, a soothing for your soul. But you foolish man you had it in your had and you let it go And you come to me asking for release, freedom, freedom for your soul HA!
Now 30 years has come and gone sense the Wizard went for his walk. Magics gone and died but the spirits they still mock... “OH you foolish man you had it in your had and you let it go. And you come to me asking for release, freedom, freedom for your soul
