Take a trip back in time
Life evolving growing higher
Not just space that bluebird sees
in the sea a new domain


Swimming forth came on land
beast to ape grasping hands
thinking kill never ran
lived in caves enter man


Tamed the fire prophesied
Length of day and height of sky
Made his tools chased his meal
Then progressed he built the wheel

Falling down from heaven
Twisted leaves - so twisted
Still so strong after all those

I can see the meaning
Twisted Trees - so twisted
Spin the wheel of never ending

Blessed were the ways of the creatures in their caves
Who hold the last clue in the life of me and you
They had the fight to make good their rights
And Bluebird could not stir

Who made you and me
Whose are the eyes of the world that looked at me

Falling from their saddles
Victories lost battles
Spin the wheel of never ending

Blessed were the ways of the sinners in their graves
Who saved the last place in the shade for me and you
Forty Thousand teeth were beared
As if to rip the flesh already torn

Who made you and me
Whose were the eyes of the world
that looked at me

I was the first to see it all when the rainbow
crossed the bridge at dawn
Forty billion miles I came to tell this
Tale already told

Who made you and made me
Whose are the eyes of the world we’re
looking through

Remember the future...

Remember the first time
I came here the last time
Remember the future will always be there

But now that it’s over
I’ll see you the next time
Remember the future is yours

Remember the future...

And now that you’ve seen me
I see it’s behind you
Remember the future will always be there

And so I have told you
You see what’s before you
Remember the future is yours

    General CommentThis is one of those songs/albums that you hate at first, and then grows on you, which was certainly the case with me.

    As for the meaning, I'm not sure, but here is an interesting interpretations courtesy of Joolz:

    The story is about the nature of life and existence as told by a kind of re-incarnating misfit ('Bluebird') to someone to whom his abnormalities have no meaning - a blind boy. Bluebird appears to be a Christ-like figure who has to be crucified before being reborn in the boy. The boy absorbs stories of the past and future, the meaning of life, before becoming the future with the promise of eternal life. The story ends with Bluebird imparting some sound and thought-provoking advice.

    Back to me now. Reading the lyrics, this seems reasonable, and this is truly an excellent song and an excellent album. A must have.
