The dessert in the blazing sun
I feel my throat is burning
The guard is incorruptable
You name it vanity or yearning - oh

Now - dusty into my face
We gotta build it higher and higher
The sun is whipping from above
Your child chains of desire

And craving towers
From the dessert towards the sky
The grind of the genius
Who's raising his own decline

And the navigator is heading for hell
Setting off on a journey
And he'll never return
And the navigator he rose and he fell
In quest for heaven
He'll never return

Hey the seeker reaching for the stars
Beyond the scape of profanity
Oh and when he tried to touch the light
Fire burned his sanity away

Oh I gotta see it all
Tempting deities I hear them
But then when you follow their call
Pride goes before the fall

And the navigator is heading for hell
Setting off on a journey
And he'll never return
And the navigator he rose and he fell
In quest for heaven
He'll never return

    General Comment" It’s about natural urge of human beings to look further and reach higher, and reach for the stars. Which is not a band thing of course, everyone is reaching for the stars. But also a warning it’s a two-edge sword, to be reaching higher, man cannot always come to the heavens via mountain. It just like the, you know what I mean. If you just keep reaching higher and higher (hand clap). " - Tobias Sammet
