All your ships Have left their moorings Cast adrift On the Sargasso Sea Waiting for the wind To set your sails free
When you reach The end of your rainbow Chasing shadows And down on your luck Look for the sign Look for a sign
As you rise to the very top Of your mountain Just remember those Poor lost souls On their way down
You taught me patience Was a virtue I took my time Let Nature take her cause All was revealed All in good time
Turn back your clocks Open up your memories Beneath the veil Where time stands still You showed me a sign You showed me the sign

Sometimes I feel like I want to live Far from the metropolis Just walk through that door Sometimes I feel like I want to fly Reach out to the painted sky A prisoner to the wind A bird on the wing
Sometimes I feel the ocean in my blood See rain from the sky above Her song blind tears And now Those tears leave taste on my tongue Like the warm rush you get from Black opium Black opium
Sometimes I feel like I want to leave Behind all these memories And walk through that door Outside The black night calls my name But all roads look the same They lead nowhere They lead nowhere
We are ancients As ancient as the sun We came from the ocean Once our ancestral home So that one day We could all return To our birthright The great celestial dome
We are the children of the sun Our journey's just begun Sunflowers in our hair We are the children of the sun There is room for everyone Sunflowers in our hair
Throughout the ages Of iron, bronze, and stone We marvelled at the night sky And what may lie beyond We burned offerings To the elemental ones Made sacrifices For beauty, peace and love
We are the children of the sun Our kingdom will come Sunflowers in our hair We are the children of the sun Our carnival's begun Our songs will fill the air
And you know it's time To look for reasons why Just reach up and touch the sky To the heavens we'll ascend We are the children of the sun Our journey has begun
All the older children Come out at night Anaemic, soulless Great hunger in their eyes Unaware of the beauty That sleeps tonight
And all the queen's horses And all the king's men Will never put these children back Together again
Faith, hope, our charities Greed, sloth, our enemies
We are the children of the sun We are the children of the sun
We are the stars which sing We sing with our light; We are the birds of fire, We fly over the sky. Our light is a voice; We make a road for the spirit to pass over (algonquian indian)
We are like the wind, Wrapped, luminous wind, We make a road for the spirits to pass over. For the Spirits to pass over.
Outo, ba mwen son ou,e, Outo, ba mwen son ou,e, Tanbouye, o ba mwen son ou, Soley leve. Outo, give me your sound, Outo, give me your sound, Drummer, give me your sound, The sun rises.
I thought that you knew it all Well you've seen it ten times before. I thought that you had it down With both your feet on the ground. I love slow ... slow but deep. Feigned affections wash over me. Dream on my dear And renounce temporal obligations. Dream on my dear It's a sleep from which you may not awaken. You build me up then you knock me down. You play the fool while I play the clown. We keep time to the beat of an old slave drum. You raise my hopes then you raise the odds You tell me that I dream too much Now I'm serving time in disillusionment. I don't believe you anymore ... I don't believe you. I thought that I knew it all I'd seen all the signs before. I thought that you were the one In darkness my heart was won. You build me up then you knock me down. You play the fool while I play the clown. We keep time to the beat of an old slave drum. You raise my hopes then you raise the odds You tell me that I dream too much Now I'm serving time in a domestic graveyard. I don't believe you anymore ... I don't believe you. Never let it be said I was untrue I never found a home inside of you. Never let it be said I was untrue I gave you all my time
