Worn from walking this far
So worn from talking this much
And what we found and what we've seen
As the road curves down

And the lights come up to meet us
Silent for the evening
We enter this town
Like new born creatures

Those I know I see anew
And the space between us is reduced
For I am human
And you are human too

So turn and turn again
We are calling in all the ships
Every traveler, please come home
And tell us all that you have seen
Break every lock to every door
Return every gun to every draw
So we can turn
And turn again

Only priests and clowns can save us now
Only a sign from God or a hurricane
Can bring about
The change we all want

And we've done it again
This trick we have
Of turning love to pain
And peace to war

We're just ash in a jar

So turn and turn again
We are calling in all the ships
Every traveler, please come home
And tell us all that you have seen
Break every lock to every door
Return every gun to every draw
So we can turn
And turn again (x2)

    General CommentWow, I can't believe nobody has commented any thoughts about what is for me the most calming and peaceful song I've ever heard.

    And about the lyrics, I think it all has something to do with what I just said; us humans should stop hurting each other, stop keeping secrets for one another, and start using our brains more (and maybe what we need is a new beginning).

    The song is just so, so peaceful :) I especially like the start:

    "Worn from walking this far
    So worn from talking this much
    And what we found and what we've seen
    As the road curves down

    And the lights come up to meet us
    Silent for the evening
    We enter this town
    Like new born creatures

    Those I know I see anew
    And the space between us is reduced
    For I am human
    And you are human too"
