Empyrean Views

They found the steppe and sang its song
Some settled in or just moved along
In isles between the markers they go

On the left rose a sign that the end was near
It said, “Repent or burn and thank God it’s HERE!
2001 resurrected dead on planet Jupiter!
Everyone’s purchased a place to go
With the clearest view and the bargain low
The buildings end here where the walls crumble down
They usher in the isles of stones
Between the bones and places they’ve travelled

The train ignites across the view
The faces blur and all of you
Rocket by rocket by with places to go

Aeronautic distant diamonds burst
Like morning stellar universe
Leaving little scars in the great blue sky

Refrain~

Find your way; one step further, one step further

Walking into the sun
Where the day had begun they moved past the routine and fear
Along a coast of never knowing

Well, have they fallen off the edge of the world?
Or did the sea swell up to swat every one of them away?
There’s a longing in those hearts that calls

It calls for a destination
We call to the destination
It calls for a destination
Engage for the destination

The sky is a changing window
A firmament that cuts off empyrean views
Of light and wheels of fire

The Sun and Moon and Stars are markers
Finding our way through impermanence
And all they have is one step further
Finding a way, our way

Refrain~

Find your way; one step further, one step further

Everyone’s purchased a place to go
With the clearest view and the bargain low
The buildings end here where the walls crumble down
They usher in the isles of stones
Between bones and places they’ve travelled
The places they’ve gone, that we’ve been, and we’ll go
