lyrics

Horizon. Lift my eyes to the road
I heard that out west there was a shore
Don't know why. But i have to go
now I'm no dreamer. But i heard that's where they go
It's not that bad here. But there's got to be more
Maybe there's something that will ask me to never go
To whom I may say
So rise my body
Oh sings this soul
I throw my anchor to the great below
So it was strange when the road west came to an end
Cause it's never ever ever ever the same as in your head
But the wind was at my back. And something magic pushed me further yet
Now I'm sailing. And as the shore fades away
something sparkled there below the waves
now I'm fallin'. And i feel your embrace
Out there in the blue, I disappear with you into the rays
and we say
So rise my body
Oh sings this soul
I throw my anchor to the great below
Now take my anger
bind it to a stone
and cast thee ever
to the great below
