Era 2000 and later


Lost his sense of all proportion
Lost his reason and his rhyme
Through the power of distortion
And the legacy of time
So he called out to the darkness
'When will night turn into day?'
And from the silence of the tunnels up ahead
He thought he heard somebody say

Only when the wind blows
Only when the sea flows
Only when the grasses grow and people breathe the air
Only when the earth turns
Only when the sun burns
The answers that you need are everywhere

The subterranean existence
A soul in hiding from its pain
And the path of least resistance
Leads in circles once again
So he crawled along his tunnel
Crawling on his hands and knees
Until there came a shaft of sunlight from above
And voices carried on the breeze


And he emerges in the brightness
His hands are calloused from the climb
One last look back to the darkness
He won't be going there this time
Re-united with the morning
He hasn't felt like this for years
And sometimes there is nothing else for us to do
But surrender to our tears

Chorus x 2
