The Remembering. All our thoughts, impressions, knowledge,
relate to is our own past, our own life, our own history. Here, it
and depth of our mind's eye; the topographic ocean. Hopefully we
as the nature of what is impressed on the mind, and how it is retained and used.
As the silence of seasons on we relive abridge sails afloat
Of the velvet sailors course on
Course the compass to offer into a time that we've all seen on

While the moments start to linger
The strength regains us in between our time
As we shall speak to differ also the ends meet the river's son

And search the forest of the sun
And I do think very well
They move fast
There's someone rainbow

We danced as evenings sang their song
And I do feel very well
Silently. They move round
Whispers of clay

As we shall speak to differ also the ends meet the river's son

Stand awhile we search our past we start anew
Out in the city running free
The strength of the meeting lies with you
School gates remind us of our class

Pass amongst your memories told returning ways
We walk around the story
Days pass as seconds turn they key

Iron metal cast to others

Remember to sail the skies
Will we reach
Other skylines

All the dying cried before you
We've rejoiced in all their meaining
We advance we retrace our stories
Like a dreamer all our lives are only lost begotten changes
Outwards ways.
Things are all in colours and the size of others shall send you
Arrange to sail you toward
Will we reach
Other skylines

All the passion spent on one cross
Sail the futile wars they suffer
We advance we retrace our story, fail safe now
Stand on hills of long forgotten yesterdays
As certain as we walk today
Out in the city running free
The strength of the moment lies with you
Shine over mountains make the view

And change the passing of the sun

As the truth unflods you
They move time
Sunlight
Alternate tune
Rainbows
Alternate view
Tell me
Alternate view
