It is all there
The earth and the ocean
They contain the power
of our lives

This beautiful city
that surrenders
to the nightfall
Carving the grounds
we walk upon

And the air
We all dare
to ride it somehow

Blue and black is the sky
While tumbling down
Trapped into the freedom
of an aeroplane

Deprived of sleep
we jump into the deep
With no knowledge whatsoever

And the air
We all dare
to ride it somehow

There is no place
on the face
of this earth
Only silence
is the sound
of an angel

    General CommentI read somewhere that this was inspired by an airplane flight over the Atlantic ocean-- seems pretty accurate to me. The meaning is pretty obvious but the music itself is where it's at. Great song.
