35 years I lay awake at night
Across my mind is one eternal fight
Inventing new ways to think and see
But keep old friends and answers to old ways

To frontiers my kind is following the spark
To build lighthouse for those who scared of dark
To frontiers where we befriend the shark
And stare at night but do not see the dark
Of sadness, madness...

Here I crawl to rise above (to rise above)
To rise above (to rise above)
Oh, what is godless and misleading
And touch the world (touch the world)
And touch the world (and touch the world)
And touch the world that isn't bleeding

'Cause I don't know if anywhere in this universe there is this kind of love
I don't know if anywhere in this universe someone like you to know
I don't know if anywhere in this universe there is this kind of love
I don't know if anywhere in this universe someone like you to know

And I did see most beautiful of dreams
A cosmic harp where we were the strings
So making sure that the shudder is in tune
To loneliness we were all immune

To frontiers my kind is following the spark
To build lighthouse for those who scared of dark
To frontiers where we befriend the shark
And stare at night to erase the mark
Of sadness, madness...

Oh, here I crawl to rise above (to rise above)
To rise above (to rise above)
Oh, what is godless and misleading
And touch the world (touch the world)
And touch the world (and touch the world)
And touch the world that isn't bleeding

'Cause I don't know if anywhere in this universe there is this kind of love
I don't know if anywhere in this universe someone like you to know
I don't know if anywhere in this universe there is this kind of love
I don't know if anywhere in this universe someone like you to know
