tell me where i'm going...
tell me where i'm bound...
turn the pages over
turn the world around
open up the broken door for all lost will be found
walk into the empty room but never make a sound
oh tell me where i'm going
tell me why i'm bound to tear the pages open
turn the world around...

i've seen everybody
everybody's seen me
in the lookin' glass
i'm in everybody
everybody's in me
in the stone is cast -
the glass is smashed

the past - it never says it
it never makes a sound
whispered ways were chosen
echoes will be found
mirrors that were broken
lay there on the ground
though the way lies open
will the way be found
oh tell me where i'm going and
tell me why i'm bound to tear the pages open
turn the world around...

so the story goes it
everybody knows it
look into the past
we can't live without it
we can't live within it
everything must pass
the change is cast...

i've seen everybody
everybody's seen me
in the lookin' glass
i'm in everybody
everybody's in me
in the stone is cast -
the glass is smashed

    General CommentThis song is one of the most powerful songs ever written. Lee Mavers wrote this song to express his mind as much as possible, although he hates recordings of music, we all got to hear this version. Mavers is a little bit insane when it comes to music, which shows his true genius in his lyrics

    General CommentI always find it funny that one of the last lines repeated as it fades out is 'the change is cast'. John Powers then went on to form Cast!!!! MWAH ha ha!!!!

    General CommentThe first time i heard this ( which was recently ) i had what can only be described as a religious experience, i didn't know whether to laugh or cry, and i won't even attempt to dechiper the lyrics.
    It's a shame about lee mavers, they could have been huge.
