Lyrics

When I was young I heard a tale of vastness in the skies
It all just seemed like fiction in a world that's filled with lies
But something tells me life's too short
And we were meant for more
Than a tangled web of doubt and pain
Of famine, tears and war.

Shades of truth cut through the air when I hear the howling wind
When I stand alone in the driving rain and I count my drops of sin
When Someone speaks in a golden voice that softens every scar
This world can only bring me down so far.
I will set my compass by the Morning Star

We walk this path of destiny beginning to the end
And though the road runs high and low
The pathway does not bend
I've kicked the dust from off my shoes and weary I walk on
To Someone Somewhere up ahead where all of this is gone

Blades of truth cut through the air when I hear the howling wind
When I stand alone in the driving rain and I count my drops of sin
When Thunder speaks in a gloried voice that takes away the scar
This world can only bring me down so far.
I will set my compass by the Morning Star

This path of life
Is like a constellation
Through all this desolation
I have found a Consolation

We walk this path of destiny beginning to the end
And though the road runs high and low
The pathway does not bend
I've kicked the dust from off my shoes and weary I walk on
To Someone Somewhere up ahead where all of this is gone

Blades of truth cut through the air when I hear the howling wind
When I stand alone in the driving rain and I count my drops of sin
When Thunder speaks in a gloried voice that takes away the scar
This world can only bring me down so far.
I will set my compass by the Morning Star
