This is a song that Ari's friend and then-singer Judd Sather wrote some time in mid-90s. This is the 1st recording of this song. Judd is now an in-demand photographer (studiojphoto.com), and Bob & Ari's current portraits were taken by him.

lyrics

In the beginning there was infinite time and infinite space
The earth was without form and void
And the darkness was upon the face of the deep
The spirit of God was moving over the water's face
And heavenly bodies they were flung into the sea
The day and the night and the light and the firmament
They all fell in lines
The lands appeared and the water gathered together
Keeping the rhyme and time

A world without pain
Celestial beings dancing in the rain
Illuminate the haunting mystery
The majesty and the darkness bow on bended knee
To the August moon

I used to think that I know
The way it all eventually should go
But now I find that tightly woven dreams
They tend to unwind
Deliberate the choices we make
The chances we didn’t take
On a midnight walk I raise my palms to you
Give me an answer soon

A world without pain
Celestial beings dancing in the rain
Illuminate the haunting mystery
The majesty and the darkness bow on bended knee
To the August moon
