Lyrics:

(The SPIDERS disappear one by one. GRANATH walks up the cliff to the edge. From atop, GRANATH rests. There is a large tree beside him. Night.)

 

GRANATH

IN TIME

EVERYTHING IS ENCIRCLED

THE STARS THE SUNS THE MOONS

THE FIRE, THE WIND

ALL THAT IS AROUND US AND

ALL THAT IS WITHIN US REVOLVES

 

TIME IS MY SHEPHERD

MY ROD AND MY STAFF,

THEY COMFORT ME.

NO MATTER ITS BIRTH OR TWILIGHT

NO MATTER IT’S FUTURE OR PAST

TIME WILL FOLLOW ME ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE

 

(Gods from constellations mold away from the stars and they move about in traditional dances. The Gods interact around GRANATH. HE does not realize the Gods are there.)

 

WE MAKE TIME

WE KILL TIME

WE WASTE TIME

WE KEEP TIME

WE MOLD TIME

INTO A FITTED DRESS

A BRILLIANT FITTED DRESS TO WEAR

 

TIME IS

AN ETERNAL PARADOX

IT IS OUTSIDE AND IN

IT’S STILL AND FAST

TIME IS WHAT CREATES US AND

TIME IS WHAT DESTROYS US

ITS TURNS

 

TIME IS MY GIVER/PROVIDER

MY CUP OVERFLOWS

IT HUMBLES ME

I’VE TAKEN REST IN GREEN PASTURES

I’VE BATHED MYSELF IN WARM WATERS

I EMBRACE THE JOURNEY. IT IS ALL THAT WILL MATTER/MATTERS

 

IN TIME
