All my kingdom's gone
It's burning to the ground
Reason leaves me
As future sits upon a solitary throne
A treasure is sinking
Seems now long gone

The desert takes away
our fears and dreams, but they
always will return

Be the moon and sun
Be the wind and cross the storm
See the stars begin to swarm
Read the writings in the stone
Be the moon and be the sun
Be the wind and cross the storm
See the stars begin to swarm
Read the writings in the stone

Seeking patterns
Envisaging pictures of a dying dream
Fallen prison
The façade of wisdom in old scars

Be the moon and sun
Be the wind and cross the storm
See the stars begin to swarm
Read the writings in the stone
Be the moon and be the sun
Be the wind and cross the storm
See the stars begin to swarm
Read the writings in the stone

Breathe in the air ("Breathe deeper")
Don't lose the stars ("Keep sinking")
The old spirit ware's ("Perceiving")
Speaking within ("Conceiving")
Show me the way ("Old spirits")
Uncertainty ("Deceiving")
Feelings arise ("Believing")
Take what is mine ("Retrieving")
(x2)

As I've been forsaken
My veins feel unshaken

In the skies a secret lies
Well disguised before my eyes
"The Universe is all around us kept in motion
Alleviate our pain and fear, test our devotion"
"The Universe is all around us kept in motion
Alleviate our pain and fear, test our devotion"
(x2)

Breathe in the pain ("Keep breathing")
You won't break these chains ("Keep digging")
For what you've foreseen ("Believing")
Was only a dream ("Deceiving")
Give me what's yours ("Retrieving")
You've dug your own tomb ("Keep digging")
Your kingdom is gone ("Keep grieving")
It's burned to the ground ("Defeated")

All my fears have drowned
All my fears have drowned
Seems now long gone
The ocean took away
my fears and dreams, but they
never returned

Be the moon and sun
Be the wind and cross the storm
See the stars begin to swarm
Read the writings in the stone
Be the moon and be the sun
Be the wind and cross the storm
See the stars begin to swarm
Read the writings in the stone

The universe is all around us
Read the writings in the stone
(x2)

    Song FactPareidolia is the psychological idea that a sound or image gives the impression of a familiar pattern or picture of something that doesn't actually exist.

    e.g. objects with see in clouds, a chip that looks like a celebrity etc. etc.

    My InterpretationI believe they are trying to tell people to not look for hidden messages, and not to look for an image when there is none. That is, live your life to it's fullest (live in the moment) and to not look for something that isn't there (whatever that is).

    Could be also that perhaps it is seeing what is behind the "images" that society has constructed for us. What we perceive as "normal" could perhaps just be a false image (a pareidolia if you like).

    Song FactCharlie Griffiths in an interview from 2013 said this about the song's meaning (to him):

    "Ah well that’s all in the eye, or ear of the beholder you see. Diego [Tejeida; keys] wrote the lyrics to that one, so this is just my interpretation. The human brain is excellent at finding patterns and we often attribute meaning to things where there is none, so the song discusses the idea of basing your beliefs or world-view on something that you later realise has no foundation in reality. That moment of realisation can either crush you or make you a better, stronger person."
