lyrics

I

He leaves one morn
For a land unknown
Has no past to build upon
Roaming on his own

He raises towns
And he builds a scheme
Writes the law and lays it down
Keeping to his dream

I’ve seen what we could be
A vision of a new world in its majesty
Where all are placid and free
But he can’t know it is not meant to be

Deep inside his heart and soul
He knows where to go
But deeper still he’ll one day find
A force he can’t outgrow

A billion years may have passed
But in the end the same goals guide his hand
Buried deep in his brain
All for one, yet none for all

He flies into the stars
He reaches for the heavens
Climbs Olympus in his heart
In his mind, becomes a god

But he can’t find the means
To escape his weakness
Wrath and envy start to grow
And his brother is his foe


II

In his feeble mind
There’s a proneness to resign
A vision falls apart
And anguish fills his heart

Neither way he’s free
So he trades integrity
For a state of mind
Where he is somehow one of a kind

And he pays expense
For a life in providence
When a new divide
Is set to once again ignite

I will rise to do what must be done
To ensure the advent of the one
If I were to fall, then so it be
I’m sure that day Messiah comes for me

You’re the one
Your blaze outshines the sun
Soar across the skies
And draw a million eyes
Likeness of the Swan
Earthly frame foregone
You meet us once upon
an endless winter’s day

He flies into the stars
He reaches for the heavens
Climbs Olympus in his heart
In his mind, becomes a god
