Well we felll
From Minnesota
Into Iowa's great plains
And we barreled through the brier
With the rascal at the reigns

And then we trudged
Along the gully
And got lost among the grains
And we pushed on
but nothing in Nebraska seemed to change

And we climbed
Through Colorado
A crescendo to the clouds
And from the mountaintops immortalized
We'd shout our names out loud

We hit the desert
like a drum
Clear as a cadence
And as steady
We checked our pulses with our thumbs
And by our heartbeats we were ready

"And we must break the trail or die"
I heard the Navigator cry
And i thought he must be losing his mind
To which the rascal soon replied
With a fire in his eyes
"I can think of no catastrophe
Could keep us from our prize"

Well we set out with the sun
To learn the country like a score
And our eyes, and ears, and instruments
Were aching to record

And we saw songs along the landscape
And we saw clefs drawn on the ground
And in the key of perseverance
Well we dove into the sound

And then a dust storm drew upon us
Like a surge of violins
We plugged our ears
And we ducked our heads
But somehow the sound got in

Then we rose like resolution
From the dust of dissonance
And we brushed it from our shoulders
Knowing we still had a chance

And there were oh so many stars
Above our heads and in our hearts
We went crazy just trying to count them
But I'd have sworn to the skies
I had worn out my eyes
In the valleys, on the moors, and in the mountains

And then i saw that rascal lying
Like a lyric on the sand
I reached to grasp him with my good arm
And i pulled him up to stand
And as the navigator grinned
And said we're doing the right thing
And as the sunlight kissed his skin
And his eyes lit up again
Well i knew that it was finally time to sing
