Show me the stone, ye without sin
And the cherry without no stone
The jawbone without no chin
The chicken that has no bone.

Cast the stone in a bowl of tin
A stone with no knucklebones
Cast the stone, ye without sin
Be the first to hear the groan.

Groan of despair, the news written there
In runes delphic and fraught
Give to despair all that you dare
The fate is known and youíre caught.

The stone will say to the very day
To the hour, oh ye without sin
The stone you cast has fallen away
In its patterns your end now begins.

You cast the stone, you cast the die
You read fate in the knucklebones
You blind your own eyes as fate comes alive
To carry you back to sinís home.
