""My hat in hand as I heard the news Now I'm leaving the fold forever While walking a mile in the old man's shoes I'm chasing rainbow weather Someone drew me a map so I'm never coming back round here
They showed me the ghost of a grand design Gone with the change of the seasons A glimpse of a world someone left to find Held out of reach for a reason All their dreams and plans I can't understand
Breathe in the morning light On the wing taking flight Conscious and clear Hearing destiny call Come and grow young with me Life as it's meant to be Life in a world where the sky never falls See the road ahead That's the way he said Pack your bags we're leaving today Here in our hearts and hands We hold the promised land We'll find our future and there we will stay To be free again
So there I was in a waking dream Time ran slow as summer When far from the valley cross the stream I heard the pipes and the drummers So I followed the sound as the stars shone down
The bodies we grow old in As skin displays the scars The bones like prison bars that hold us No man escapes unscathed So raise a glass to change and all it brings
There comes a time we stumble Then comes a time we fall But we crawl again until we're walking Talking sense again And soon we're on the mend and on our way""
