Woke up today with a lay of the land
Feather in cap and the sun in the sand
It was easy
It was easy to understand
Everything suddenly falls out of sight
Every attachment is made of the light
That you offered
You have offered to give me life

CHORUS
See the sky & all the land together again
See the way the earth can stay below
Who do we think we are?
Everything plays a part
There are some things we are never meant to know

Having enjoyed all the meat from the bone
Is perfectly equal to being alone
It was even
But you breathe and I turn to stone
Everything suddenly looks like a sign
Easy to see from the outermost clime
I believe in what I leave in the way behind

CHORUS

And all the parts combine to one
And all of us around the sun
Everything will fall away
To order from the disarray

See the sun the shadows cast
From all the times I floated past
See the ocean spinning out
With all the hope & all the doubt

See the sky & all the land together again
See the way the earth can stay below
Who do we think we are?
Everything plays a part
There are some things we don't understand
Reasons on the other hand
There are some things we are never meant to know
