Shock to the system
But you're going back inside of the light
Shock to the freedom
Only one more body of love, and they're rolling - They're rolling back to you!
Dreaming all the time; they be dreaming all the time

Shock to the politicians
You know they just got burned by the fire
Shock to the freedom whispers
They're only coming after, they're rolling - They're rolling, coming over!
Dreaming all the time; they be dreaming all the time

So, in answer to the prayer
The one you want is there
The one you feel inside of you
So, in answer to the dream
This time you are so clear
It's always got to be this way!

Shock to the future
Shock to the rights of Mankind
And they won't even go blind
When they can't see what's going on

So, in answer to the prayer
The one you feel is there
The one you feel so close to
(The order of the Sun).
And everyone is one
And all the pieces fit together
Did it all begin with someone?
Did it all begin with someone?
I couldn't have pictured being alive!
