There will always be a part of you - it could be anyone
That wants a path that'll lead you to the light
But the hollow voice inside of you - the same for everyone
Is standing in the way of your divine right
Slowly it's replaced now - it's inescapable
By a song that drifts across the dunes
Not a moment left to waste now - I know you're capable
Of soaring on the notes of all the ancient tunes

Oh surrender to the sound so sweet it fills the empty cup
Try to remember giving in is not giving up

So you find the sacred path and then - you can't believe your eyes
You get a shot at getting off the wheel
It may not come around again - don't listen to the lies
The mind you prize is your Achilles' heel
And when you see what's left of you - meet your divinity
That's been inside you silent all along
See the spirit shining through - in your epiphany
You finally see the truth was hidden in the song


You've been asleep in a dream so long you've got nothing to show
And the fairy tale seems so wrong but that's all that you know
You're holding on with a grip so strong if you'd just let go, oh oh oh oh

(Chorus, Repeat)
