lost on the journey of this dreary life,
how long have I to tread the path of dreams?
how long have I to not know anything at all?
what lies behind? what lies ahead?
the days pass by like wind and I’m the same: lost and not knowing anything

so I have left it all behind
yes I have kissed my home goodbye
I’m setting out to find out why I am alive
I’ll sleep in fields and ditches,
I’ll live on half-forgotten dreams and I won’t rest until I know that I have arrived

how can it be I’ve grown so old with nothing more to show for it?
there’s nothing else to do but start again and not to end until I know...

and now it seems I left moments ago
and I’m already far beyond my home
how can it be I’ve come so far and still remain unchanged?
what lies behind? what lies ahead?
the miles have passed like wind and so it seems I know one thing: that I have arrived

(now I shall set out to know the truth
now I’ll sleep awhile and dream...
I will lay my head down and I’ll allow Heaven to speak to me
and in that place between sleeping and waking
when the formless takes on form
and form becomes formless I’ll try not to be frightened
and return to what I know
I will try and let the dreams take over
I will try and let the dreams take over me
I will try and let the dreams take over me...)
