with that the flower covered fawn went out.

 

Song 3

aaaa

Ai as you are walking out there,
from the flower enchanted opening,
you are walking out.
As you are walking out there,
from the flower enchanted opening,
you are walking out.

Ai as you are walking out there,
from the enchanted opening,
you are walking out.
As you are walking out there,
from the flower enchanted opening,
you are walking out.

Ai as you are walking out there,
from the enchanted opening,
you are walking out.
As you are walking out there,
from the flower enchanted opening,
you are walking out.

Ai as you are walking out there,
from the enchanted opening,
you are walking out.
As you are walking out there, ___________________450
from the flower enchanted opening,
you are walking out.

Ai as you are walking out there,
from the enchanted opening,
you are walking out.
As you are walking out there,
from the flower enchanted opening,
you are walking out.

Over there in the flowered covered
here in the enchanted flower patio, patio,
you saw, you are walking out.
There as you are walking out,
from the flower enchanted opening,
you are walking out.

 

Song 4

aaaa

Ai who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?
Who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?

Ai who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?
Who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?

Ai who is running down like that _________________460
in the enchanted water?
Who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?

Aa who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?
Who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?

Ai who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?
Who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?

Aa who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?
Who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?

Aa who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?
Who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?

Over there from the flower covered enchanted wilderness grove 470
as you are walking with flowers all over your antlers
running down in the enchanted water,
Who is running down like that
in the enchanted water?

You see, like this, it says, fathers,
the two or three truths,
what you wanted to hear.
The Kanaria,
like this, began, and, like this, ended.
The animal,
in the wilderness world
the one who is helping itself
truly, went out from here, _____________________480
went out on its flower road.
Truly, as he is walking toward there, like that, it says.
As he is walking toward the enchanted water, like that, it says.
But, he went out with this.
But, this, also, fathers,
you also,
it,
on it, vigorously, like this, also, you will question it.

Those,
they, the elders ____________________________490
that are in the wilderness world,
those
deer bulls,
two or three together, those who arrive,
truly, arrived there together like that, they talk together.
Again, the deer,
he who will dance for them
in the wilderness world,
the flower people and the
flower people _____________________________500
as they arrive together,
like this, it says.
They sang for it
in the wilderness world,
they, those who move about.
Truly, this, the elders' inheritance stayed in their hands.
Those elders, they saw what is there in the wilderness
world, the animal.
They saw that.
Like that they say in the very beginning, those elders,
the ones that used to move about in the wilderness world, 510
the ones that used to search for it in the wilderness world,
like this, they say it.
But those bull deer, the ones that come together like this,
as they worked on it,
like this
they studied it.
Like this they gained their knowledge of it.
And we, the following generations of the Yoeme,
the
elders' truth as it is called, we,
that we just work on it piece by piece, fathers, __520
piece by piece, we . . .
But maybe because we are going to get punished for it
we were given this truth.
And the animal
maybe is also going to be punished by it.
Maybe God is punishing us like this with it.
Even if God doesn't punish us with it,
over there in the wilderness world, in the mountains,
they are also holy churches.
Truly in the future when we leave this weeping earth behind,
we might not . . .
our holy churches
there, under, _____________________________530
maybe not rolled in a white sheet.
The one that truly owns it like that,
over there, maybe, the enchanted world
he might enter
at the time
when he is called.
Truly like this it will stay in your hands, fathers.
Truly like this it has it, fathers.
Like this you will continue to know it.
You can not say that the holy church is your mother.
Saying it's your mother, you should not make yourself 540
secure in relation to that,
because this does not have any truth over there, fathers.
This work that we are doing,
that also has holy churches over there,
the ones that are called the enchanted homes exist there.
They learned it from them, the elders' truth.
But we did not see them in the very beginning.
Like this also it stays in your hands.
The deer that went out, fathers, like this you will know it
like this it stays in your hands.

Audience:

Yes. ____________________________________550

Yes.

MM:

After this it will start, fathers,
That which you wanted to hear,
the songs that go with it.
Like this it says, fathers.
Like this you will know them.

 

Song 5

Aaaa

Ai as you are going above the enchanted water,
the one who is blowing, green, cool.
As you are going above the enchanted water
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.

Ai as you are going above the enchanted water, ___560
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.
As you are going above the enchanted water,
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.

Ai as you are going above the enchanted water,
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.
As you are going above the enchanted water,
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.

Ai as you are going above the enchanted water,
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.
As you are going above the enchanted water,
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.

Ai as you are going above the enchanted water,
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.
As you are going above the enchanted water,
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.

Over there under the flower covered enchanted mountain,
here above the enchanted waters I am going,
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.
As you are going above the enchanted water,
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.

Ai as you are going above the enchanted water, ___570
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.
As you are going above the enchanted water,
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.

Over there under the flower covered enchanted mountain,
here above the enchanted waters I am going,
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.
As you are going above the enchanted water,
the one who is blowing, enchanted green, cool.

You see, like this, you will know it, fathers.
So, this started first, fathers.
This goes with the
beginning songs.
Like this says the brazil wood,
the one that we have our hands on here,
on it our . . . ______________________________580
the one that is lying here.
Like this says the one we are sitting before
this is . . .
begins first, fathers.
Like this you will know it,
and knowing it like this,
you will question yourselves, fathers.
You are growing,
young men, the ones who are sitting there.
Again, also, another song, ___________________590
like this says, again, also, that goes with it.
Like this you will know it, study it by hearing it, fathers,
young men

 

Song 6

aiii

Who is over there in the enchanted water sounding?
Who is over there in the enchanted water sounding?
Who is enchanted over there in the enchanted water sounding?

Ai who is over there in the enchanted water sounding?
Who is over there in the enchanted water sounding?
Who is enchanted over there in the enchanted water sounding? 600

Ai who is over there in the enchanted water sounding?
Who is over there in the enchanted water sounding?
Who is enchanted over there in the enchanted water sounding?
