Balder’s Dream blends the tale of Balder the Beautiful’s demise in contrast to Christ Consciousness and near-death experiences. Music by Bob Powell and Marc Olson and lyrics by Marc Olson, copyright 2012 (all rights reserved).
Beyond the Water and the wine
The barren hilltop where I was tried
And my last memory of speaking to a crowd
Was it all a dream? Did I miss everything?
Like the anger…of the people…all frustrated
I saw the weapons fall to the ground
Except an arrow from a vine
Then darkness fell on me – I heard no other sound
Into the deepest sleep – into the sweetest dream…
No more shadows…no more lost years…no more nightmares
And then the sunlight leads me on
A black horizon drifts along
Escape velocity into a waking dawn
I miss that deepest sleep – back to the agony…
Of the people…all frustrated…all the anger
