The Prophet (Duncan Chisholm and Ivan Drever) I saw a raven, plumage pale I saw him drink the blood of the gael Above Clach Mor the gulls will wail Tonight the Prophet gets paid. Uigs stone so high and white Odins birds got it in its sight In Scaristavore they`ll weep tonight. For tonight the prophet gets paid. cho: He who dances shall see him And they that lie will decieve him For there are those who cannot see him Tonight the prophet gets paid. At Chanonry they scream advance The Dove, the Crow they circle and dance Tasg spirits hold them in a trance Tonight the prophet gets paid. (Chorus) The Libran moon it waxed and waned Darkness felt the sting of blackrain A thousand dreams couln't mask the pain The night the prophet got paid. Note: The first song that Duncan and Ivan have written together. The Prophet was written about the famous Highland Seer Coinneach Odhar otherwise known as The Brahan Seer. The Seer was eventually executed at Channonry on the Black Isle by the MacKenzie's of Seaforth. Legent states that a dove and a raven flew round his funeral pyre after his death, and this was a sign that his death would be avenged" (Taken from the Chase CD sleeve notes - copyright MCPS) CC CC
