High vibration go on
past a mortal as me.

Reaching out to touch our own being
Here we can be
be here now.

Workings of man
Reregaining the flower of the fruit of his tree.

By his blindness to see that the warmth of his being

driven far from the path.
So that all is left for you
all is left for you

Songs cast alight on you. All pure chance.
That tunnel us out of sane existence. In all encircling mode.
As eyes see young stars assemble. Awaken in our heart.
Master of soul. Master of time.
All impenetrable youth. Over all of our lands.
That thought be contact. Forever closer.
Be honest with yourself. Farewell, farewell.

to the sun, oh let my heart dreaming
Where can I be?
Wish the sun to stand still.
Past a mortal as we
We can be here.
Like the time I ran away
and you were standing close to me.
Like the time I ran away
and you were standing close to me.
