"The Rubicon" as written by and Richard Lansdowne West Karl Antony Groom....
Out across the water, staring to the shore
Standing on the threshold of a dream
No prior warning, no overture,
Just a sudden ocean from the stream
Isolation never was a violation
Domination never was a destination

We flew our colors always on the run
And all our gains were shadows in the sun
But as we journey through the fall, so uncertain of it all,
We've never come undone or crossed the Rubicon

Out across the valley, variation comes
Now the glow of summer disappears
No remonstration, no loaded gun
Won't offend the ones who brought us here
Condemnation never was a contemplation
Domination never was a destination

We flew our colours always on the run
And all our gains were shadows in the sun
But as we journey through the fall, so uncertain of it all,
We've never come undone or crossed the Rubicon

A spring of much potential, a summer so eventful
And so we carry on (And so we carry on)
An autumn to sustain us so winter won’t betray us
And so we carry on (And so we carry on)
We fought against all reason to last another season
And so we carry on (And so we carry on)
Dependent on the kindness of those who stand behind us
And so we carry on (And so we carry on)

Condemnation never was a contemplation
Domination never was a destination

We flew our colors always on the run
And all our gains were shadows in the sun
But as we journey through the fall, so uncertain of it all,
We've never come undone or crossed the Rubicon

Never really thought we'd come so far
(Everyone has something more to lose)
Never really thought it’s all we are
(So we must invent again ourselves)
Never really thought we'd fade away
(I have given to you all you have)
Never really thought we'd see the day
(A future generation divorcing its past)
Never really thought we'd lose these things
(All you ever thought will fall to the ground)
Never really thought we'd spread our wings
(Stronger when the stars come crashing down)
Never really thought we'd touch the sun
(The truth behind the end remains unseen)
Never really thought what we'd become
(A penny for the one you thought you'd be)
