lyrics

Our circular world makes for a wonderful conclusion
Makes for a wonderful return
To an early idea where ‘love and beauty’ was an ultimate good
And mediocrity was a kind of hell

And shadows on the walls
Were reflections of ourselves
Unable to behold anything more

Born as a poet of grandeur and ideals
With a brush dipped in the sky
And an eye for the spirit and its demise
Of small men there are no words
Only shadows on the walls

Born again into a different world
Where music finds a voice
Speaks of all there has ever been
Speaks of truth and being whole
Nurtures and uplifts the soul

The prophet’s voice is louder than before
He screams so urgently
He is dissatisfied with the ways of the collective mind
He sees himself as further and further from his brothers
And he watches as they fumble their way, unable to understand
The simplest of enlightened moments, the simplest of confused emotions
And in this minute of unknowing they are taken from his reach by another less fortunate soul
Torn away from any opportunity for seeing more than shadows on the wall
