lyrics

Looking off in the distance at a Western desert sunset
Search the fading light that chases our dreams
Each day that passes the weight of time upon us
Reality that’s known is not what it seems
Ancestors before and generations after
Followed the future from the palm of their hands
Trusting the timeless muse of the wanderer’s cold laughter
Existence left behind in the trek to foreign lands

How can we know
Just what the future holds?
Spirits will go
The path that was foretold
Through sand and snow
A vastness the eyes behold
Blue skies that glow
Shimmer of triumph’s gold

Walking down the path of hope, dreams and freedom
Supposing that tomorrow is different from today
Unrestrained we cling to the arc of fate’s pendulum
Chance is always worth a leap into the fray

Landing on the other side of destiny’s equation
Everything seems different, uncertainty’s been tamed
Laughing in the joy of privileged exploitation
A strange and mindful knowing that much is all the same

How could we know
our dreams were already sold?
There is no regret,
No prizes for growing old
Rejoice in the Flow
The journey forever goes
Contentment to know
Faith in the road we chose

Walking down the path of hope, dreams and freedom
Supposing that tomorrow is different from today
Unrestrained we cling to the arc of fate’s pendulum
Chance is always worth a leap into the fray
