Beyond the limits of our mind
Direction leading all of mankind
Where there was music and the people who danced
To the players of the singers romance
Receiving messages encoded in rhythm
Encrypted secrets in the beat of the drum

I can’t believe in disbelief, but tell me where we are
I’ve spent lifetimes searching for you
A million years and some tears since I been on the farm
But I’ve spent way more looking for truth
I come again on the wind, bringing it back to start
What was the dream you told me?
I put together all the memories of a broken heart
About a world so deafening

We met, however unlikely
Came to form a collective psyche
We all have a voice that we have to deny
That’ll say I’m not enough and that I need not apply
We redefine the mark of what can be done
We blaze it up and know we don’t have to run

I looked up into a sky and it was full of clouds
It’s as clear as a photograph
Memories on a breeze, what were they all about?
Every time I see it, I laugh
Abandoned loves and some dreams, it’s coming back now
We cannot help but thinking back
It all circles around, I’ll nab ’em somehow
As well as looking down the track
What’s next?

Sneaky and subtle
Between a kick and a cuddle
Get back in the huddle naturally
It’s a cycle
Just like the day and the nightfall
Going deeper and deeper
And we’ll never repeat along the way
