We Burn

We seek the tree
Axis mundi
Centrepiece of all reality
We seek

On dried land it dwells
Parched of life force
As souls that fell
Dwindle down
Into private hells

We make our pledges
All we can learn
From sacrifice
Fire and ice
The wheels that turn

Sacred tree
You wait for them
You wait for me
You will withstand
We will return
Till then we will shine while
We burn
