Lyrics
Where lies the heart
Where lies the soul
Of all that God's created

Rivers don't flow
Flowers don't grow
Is men around to waste it

Don't ask me how
It's when the spirit slips away

Living on dreams
No eye for the sky
Isn't it time to change it

What is to come
Of the unborn child
Now it's the time to face it

Don't ask me how
(Please don't ask me how)
But time has come to fight

'Cause it's really over
And the fire turns into a flame
When the spirit slips away
Yes it's really over
Like a fire into a flame
When the spirit slips away

The son of the whale (son of the whale)
Is fading away
There is still time to save it

Colors turn pale
without a heart (without a heart)
for all that God's created

'Cause it's really over
And the fire turns into a flame
When the spirit slips away
'Cause it's really over
Like a fire into a flame
When the spirit slips away

When the spirit

Don't ask me how (please don't ask me how)
But time has come to fight

'Cause it's really over
And the fire turns into a flame
When the spirit slips away
Really over
Raiding in another game
When the spirit slips away

When the spirit (spirit)
When the spirit (spirit)
When the spirit slips away

When the spirit (spirit)
When the spirit (spirit)
When the spirit slips away

When the spirit (spirit)
When the spirit (spirit)
