{Oh thou, who gives sustenance to the universe
From whom all things proceed
To whom all things return
Unveil to us the face of the true spiritual sun
Hidden by a disc of golden light
That we may know the truth
And do our whole duty
As we journey to thy sacred feet}

Well I said, "Lily, oh Lily I don't feel safe
I feel that life has blown a great big hole
Through me" And she said
"Child, you must protect yourself
You can protect yourself
I'll show you how with fire"

Gabriel before me
Raphael behind me
Michael to my right
Uriel on my left side
In the circle of fire

I said, "Lily, no Lily I'm so afraid
I fear I am walking in the Veil of Darkness"
And she said, "Child, take what I say
With a pinch of salt
And protect yourself with fire"

Gabriel before me
Raphael behind me
Michael to my right
Uriel on my left side
In the circle of fire

He doesn't do, doesn't do, doesn't do
No don't don't don't
This must be used

Gabriel before me
Raphael behind me
Michael to my right
Uriel on my left side
Hmm, in the circle of fire

Oh, Gabriel before me, you'll
Raphael behind me
Michael to my right
Uriel on my left side
In the circle of fire
