ARENA

[2004]

Before me plays the endless film, relentless splinters I recall
Each living thing breathes life, only sentiment remains
To liquid born, from patterns formed
The sand descends with blind intent
Where the river takes me will in time be revealed

I cannot turn my feelings down
Beyond my means to turn my thoughts around
Expressed in every word I'll ever speak
Brighter than all the stars combined
More than the waters, earth and sky
All that I wish and all that I dream

Above the waves with my hands raised
Dare the wind, lay claim to me
Knowing somehow none could take me
Watching the Sun come up in vain
The only reason I can find why I remained,
the need to leave the point I came to again and again
It didn't matter how hard I tried
It took so long to claim that I knew how or what it meant
to let go of this, to ever say goodbye
Call it destiny, call it fate
Chose my direction running forward
Each life to learn anew, whatever, whatever may come

I cannot turn my feelings down
Beyond my means to turn my thoughts around
Expressed in every word I'll ever speak
Brighter than all the stars combined
More than the waters, earth and sky
All that I wish and all that I dream

No creed on earth can replace or provide,
in my darkest hour, the comfort I'd feel,
leading me to see I can be more than I expect of me
My beginning and my end
The first and last air that I breathe
More than the sum of everything that I will ever be
