Song Description

A song about having a bit of perspective

Lyrics

Dreams are funny things
At night when you are sleeping,
All the world inside your head
Is wide awake and lets you watch it play
But you don?t -
You just dismiss these visions;
But just suppose these are not visions
But glimpses of the flesh and bone
That make you wake at dawn

And you wonder why you hunger
For something indistinct and way above your reach
And you listen for a mission
It?s the breathing in and breathing out that fill your sails and blow you home

So sleep the quiet sleep;
Walk around ignoring all the signs
But don?t expect to get there,
Just don?t expect to ever get there.
Cause you won?t -
Not if you insist on measuring everything
Against your limited capacity
For seeing in the dark

Cause why would you?
And how could you?
We?re not designed to reach the end before we start
Lift your head up,
Take a good look,
You might not get another chance to see this place

Let it all fall by,
The fast and the cynical
When it touches something so pure

Oh, it makes me angry
I get so angry
Cause you destroy things that you haven?t even seen
And you could think,
Oh, you just won?t think
There?s no-one holding hands over your eyes but you

Let it all fall by,
Just the slow and the beautiful sound
Of the world spinning on
Beneath us ? so far beneath us
And we climb forever,
Describing a parallel to the world
And looking down,
And smiling above it all,
And the way it looks from way up here
Is the way it?ll look when we?ve disappeared
And we fly all night with the dreams and the sky,
And we fly
