Lyrics
In the early morning
I dreamed I saw
This great city shinin
With silver and gold

Thousands of birds were flying
And rivers like ribbons
Unrolled

Behind it this million mile rainbow
Like the promise that will
Never die
And a choir that must have numbered
Over ten-thousand

Their voices went clear through
The sky

But then suddenly it happened
And a crack in the ground
Opened wide
Dark clouds covered
The daylight
And the air was a poisonous
Tide
And that
City fell down
Before my eyes

I was over almost when it started
Where beauty was nothin remained
I fell to my knees in my own self-pity
My tears in the dust
Traced a stain
I wept there where noone could hear me
I cried out \"Who would have sealed
My doom\"

When suddenly right there
Where my tear-drops had fallen
The great miracle of life
Made a small flower bloom
