[Part I - Don’t Look Down (Instrumental)]
[Part II - The Bridge That Binds]
There is a path that links us all
There is a bridge that binds
As history repeats itself we begin to realise
There is a silken thread, a joining of minds
There’s a shared experience seen through a billion eyes
As history repeats itself we begin to realise

Rising upward built to remain
Stretching out across the valley
Of souls connecting make your way

Look ahead and cross the river
Set your sights to the other side
Don’t look down or back cause there’s a long long way to go
Casting off your needless burdens
Listening to what’s inside
Bracing for the opposition, understand their cries

But the bridge is wide…the bridge that binds

There is a tale told through the ages
There is a memory that’s common to all
The way of knowing it’s not too late to make the final call

Rising upward built to remain
Stretching out across the valley
Of souls connecting make your way

Look ahead and cross the river
Set your sights to the other side
Don’t look down or back cause there’s a long long way to go
Casting off your needless burdens
Listening to what’s inside
Bracing for the opposition, understand their cries

But the bridge is wide…the bridge that binds…it binds us all…

[Part III - Before You Know It]
Understanding fading fast
Comprehension doesn’t last
More confusion, strange delusion
The future gives way to the past

Second guessing what you know
Focused only on what’s below
Coming to the wrong conclusions
Watching only a puppet show

Before you know it, too many years go by
And still the same old issues they remain
Before you know it, too many tears are cried
And all that’s left is an empty hearted campaign

Not sure who’s wrong and who is right
Not all who live are built to fight
Hopeless situations bring recalculations
Out of mind and out of sight

(x2) Before you know it, too many years go by
And still the same old issues they remain
Before you know it, too many tears are cried
And all that’s left is an empty hearted campaign

[Part IV - Turbulence (Instrumental)]
[Part V - Show Me a Sign]
It’s been a long time waiting here
For nothing much to happen
Dredging up memories with head in hand I look around and I…
I don’t seem to see many more
Who share this place with me
It’s just about the emptiness that’s all around

Show me a sign, show me the way
Help me to rise before it's too late
I’ve got a lot to learn, some trust I’ve yet to earn
Before the end of my days
Show me a sign, show me today
Help me to rise before it’s too late
I’ve got a lot to learn, some trust I’ve yet to earn
Before the end of my days

It’s hard to forget what’s gone before
Painted on smiles in photographs
They don't convey the sadness locked so deep inside

Show me a sign, show me the way
Help me to rise before it's too late
I’ve got a lot to learn, some trust I’ve yet to earn
Before the end of my days
Show me a sign, show me today
Help me to rise before it’s too late
I’ve got a lot to learn, some trust I’ve yet to earn
Before the end of my days

It’s been a long time waiting here
For nothing much to happen…

[Part VI – Undercurrents]
“There are times when patients emerging from amnesia suffer from delusions. It doesn’t happen often…I hoped it wouldn’t happen in her case but you heard it yourself. I feel it’s only fair to tell you that this condition can become worse. Our fight now is to prevent further deterioration of her mind.”

[Part VII - Let The River Run Red]
Deep thoughts, shallow wishes
Under cover and out of the way
No room for negative pushes
Kill the suckers and make them all pay

How long before you wake up knowing
That it’s all inside your head?
How much do you feel the turning?
Cut the cord let the river run red

Oh, oh, oh… oh, oh, oh… Let the river run red
Oh, oh, oh… oh, oh, oh… Let the river run red

Tied down with the weight of burdens
Buried deep beneath my soul
Never have I felt more certain
Screw them all and take control

Rising up from beneath the surface
Kicking screaming I’m over my head
In the deep I find my purpose
Crush the heart let the river run red

(x2) Oh, oh, oh… oh, oh, oh… Let the river run red
Oh, oh, oh… oh, oh, oh… Let the river run red

Deep thoughts, shallow wishes
Under cover and out of the way
No room for selfish ambitions
Shut them out, let the anger decay

[Part VIII - It All Depends]
(x3) It all depends on me
It all depends on me
It all depends on me
It all depends on me

[Part IX - The End of My Days]
It’s been a long time waiting here
But now it starts to happen
Reclaiming memories with head held high, I look around and I…
I don’t seem to see many more more
Who’ve come to share this place with me
No longer emptiness, that’s all forgotten now, oh…

You’ve shown me a sign, shown me the way
Helped me to rise before it’s too late
I’ve got a lot to learn, some trust I’ve yet to learn
Before the end of my days
Show me a sign, show me today
Help me to rise before it’s too late
I’ve got a lot to learn, some trust I’ve yet to learn
Before the end of my days

Been a long time waiting
Been a long time waiting

You’ve shown me a sign, shown me the way
Helped me to rise before it’s too late
I’ve got a lot to learn, some trust I’ve yet to learn
Before the end of my days

I’ve got a lot to learn, some trust I’ve yet to learn
Before the end of my days
