Song Meaning
Verse 1
Our truth is painted across the sky
In our reflection we learn to fly
No hand to hold us
No one to save us from tomorrow
Verse 2
Sailing away, beyond the reach of anyone
Far beyond the dreams of everyone
No light to follow
A shot in the dark
Does anybody know?
Sailing away, beyond the reach of anyone
Far beyond the dreams of everyone
High from the heavens
I can't see the pain
Does anybody care?
Verse 3
Think for a moment of all the lives
Stripped of their essence before their time
We stand to conquer
But is there nothing left tomorrow?
Verse 4
Sailing away, beyond the reach of anyone
Far beyond the dreams of everyone
No light to follow
A shot in the dark
Does anybody know?
Sailing away, beyond the reach of anyone
Far beyond the dreams of everyone
High from the heavens
I can't see the pain
Does anybody care?
Verse 5
"We have one collective hope: the Earth And yet,
uncounted people remain hopeless, famine and calamity abound
Sufferers hurl themselves into the arms of war;
people kill and get killed in the name of someone else's concept of God
Do we admit that our thoughts & behaviors spring from a belief
that the world revolves around us? Each fabricated conflict,
self-murdering bomb, vanished airplane, every fictionalized dictator,
biased or partisan, and wayward son,
are part of the curtains of society's racial, ethnic, religious, national,
and cultural conflicts,
and you find the human ego turning the knobs and pulling the levers
When I track the orbits of asteroids, comets, and planets,
each one a pirouetting dancer in a cosmic ballet,
choreographed by the forces of gravity,
I see beyond the plight of humans
I see a universe ever-expanding,
with its galaxies embedded within the ever-stretching
four-dimensional fabric of space and time
However big our world is, our hearts, our minds,
our outsize atlases, the universe is even bigger
There are more stars in the universe than grains of sand on the world's beaches,
more stars in the universe than seconds of time that have passed since Earth formed,
more stars than words & sounds ever uttered by all humans who have ever lived
The day we cease the exploration of the cosmos
is the day we threaten the continuing of our species
In that bleak world, arms-bearing,
resource-hungry people & nations would be prone to act on their low-contracted prejudices,
and would have seen the last gasp of human enlightenment
Until the rise of a visionary new culture that once again embraces the cosmic perspective;
a perspective in which we are one, fitting neither above nor below, but within"
