With an eye pressed to the spyglass
Counting constellations
On the shores of distant oceans
Charting undiscovered lands
The collectors and observers
Curators and explorers
Reflectors of light

Dare to be wise, think for yourself
See much further
Go build a steam-driven machine
Or a rocket to the moon
Dig the earth for ancient worlds
Look back in time
Tell the story from the start
The story of us
How did this all come to pass?
Merchants of light

Such wonders here
Without fantastic things
The curiosity of man
Finding form and shape and truth

But from an age of reason
Reaching out across the land
From the centuries of light
To leaden skies
And distant thunder

Meet me at the mead hall in winter
Set the world to right
With songs, science and stories
Hold back the fading light
Artists and dreamers and thinkers
Right here by your side
Finding truth in those travellers' tales
On this brief flight of life

Bring word of your engines and designs
Your medicines and poetry
And meet me at the mead hall in winter
We'll set the world to right
With songs and science and stories
Hold back the fading light
Artists and dreamers and thinkers
Are right here by your side
Reaching for the far skies
And the undiscovered depths
Following a dream of the West

Here in science and art
And beauty and music
And friendship and love
You will find us
The best of what we are
The poets and painters
And writers and dreamers

Meet me at the mead hall in winter
We'll set the world to right
With songs and science and stories
Hold back the fading light
Artists and dreamers and thinkers
Are right here by your side
Reaching for the far skies
And the undiscovered depths
Following a dream of the West
