A winding, bending, curling splendour
Your majesty is plain
Crystal-set and sapphire-ridden
The jewels must hide in shame

On and on the staircase winds
Your mystery's so deep
The world will climb these steps some day
These stairs so wide and steep

To meet the supernatural distance
On and on I'll climb
Till darkness wraps around the light
Eternity's the time

One step, two step, one step more
Who knows where lies the end?
These stairs may last forever or
Stop just around the next bend...
