Open the book
Black book of night
Flip back the pages
Thread of inner sight
Saw my dream
Spinning out of control
Believe in yesterday
Today is all you really need to know

Open the door
Take a look around
Veil of sunbeam
Tears come rainin' down
Where have they gone
Those I left behind
Stranded at a crossroad
Under empty sky
All that we are
All that we are

I got to keep movin'
I got to get home
I got to keep movin'
I got to keep on

All that we are
All that we are

Open your eyes
Back through the years
Ocean of sorrow
Drown a river of tears
Winding road
Call me in the dawn
Unknown land
Over far horizon walk alone

Where the winds rage
Where the ice falls
Where the sky moves
To shake me apart
Silent axis of the turning world
Glows in the flame
In the flame of our hearts

Throw the windows open wide
See the dawn outrace the tide
Let the past slip away
On the wings of yesterday

But me, I got to keep movin'
I got to get home
I got to keep movin'
I got to keep on

I got to keep movin'
I got to get home
I got to keep movin'
I got to keep on
