Weaving time and space The river flowing through this place Joins the highlands to the sea Weaves what was with what will be Before this place was ever named Before this space was ever framed The town that grew around this place Just another changing face But the spirit's always there Draws a circle around the square Streets and houses come and go But the earth will always know High above the river plain Circles freely as she flies On the free wind ever higher He leaves the house he can't call home Drives his car across the town On the bridge the traffic's slow The river runs its course below Clicking on the sleeping screen Thinks of all this place has seen As she glides through time and space She sees this ever changing place Retains the spirit of this place Bursting through the screen The man who dreams the mann who's seen Sings his ghost dance to the free

The wind and the waters command Winged shadows move over the land The heat on your skin during long summer days The trail of your tears at the parting of ways The ones that we try to protect The lives that we try to perfect The north will bring thunder and songs to our mouth That sing to the memories of ghosts from the south Stones by the water Made smooth over years Edges worn down by the touch of their peers We are the stones on the cold river bed Our edges made smooth by the dreams in our head The storm that our innocence took The raindrops would turn to a brook The brook would then flow into streams where we swam The streams into rivers that burst through the dam We are the raindrops, we are the flood We are the seekers of life flesh and blood We are the dreamers who dreamt since our youth Til faced with your great inescapable truth

Return to earth with five songs to sing Human islands in a sea of everything In the darkness hands are held apart Can't see with your eyes but you can see with your heart The first song brought on mist and cold That teased the young and lost the old The second song brought snow And it was time to go Within a time people gathered round To watch the eagle feather touch the ground The road man said he knew the way to go The river coursed its way below The third song brought a gentle shower Kindness within shows of power The fourth song brought a huge rain storm Thunder clouds and lightning form The fifth song took away the pain And made sun shine again Gather round and hear the five songs talking to you Find the sun shine on the land like where we used to live

You can only change the world if the world changes you You can only find the truth if you search for what is true You can only become if you somehow come to be You can only free yourself if you let others be free Time flows by Time flows by Time flows by You can only dance this dance if the music sings to you You can only hear the music if you're tuned to what is true You can only see the beauty if you look into the soul You can only see the part if you're looking for the whole Time flows by Time flows by Time flows by You can only change the world if the world changes you You can only find the truth if you search for what is true You can only become if you somehow come to be You can only free yourself if you let others be free Time flows by Time flows by Time flows by Time flows by Look at all the faces looking blankly through windows Look at the expressions of loss in their eyes Look at all their faces go right through their fingers

Grandfather's spirit is restless tonight Silently hoping the end of the fight Isn't too far away He stands by the river That flowed by his birth His sense of place retains his time on the earth What do you see here my friend? Close your eyes Forest Fire He who is scared of horses Concrete stretches to the ends of the land Sparks of spirit deadened in sand Your heaven is my hell Close your eyes Forest fire He who is cared of horses I am the backward prayer man Storms will try to pull us I am a wisdom keeper Lightning in four colours Black day Blue Night Yellow day White night The sunrise is painless But the sunset is quick Another line is cut on the moon counting stick Happiness that couldn't last Close your eyes Forest fire He who is scared of horses Grandfather's spirit

Lost in a moment of time Caught between reason and rhyme Lying alone at the end of each day Talking to people with nothing to say He's numb from the daily routine Lives a life almost unseen Connected to no-one but shackled to gold Rooted to nothing but still growing old He flicks on the screen Reveals what he's seen A million times over Seen through a dream Something is calling him somewhere inside The voice which was silent won't let him hide Lost in a moment of time Caught between reason and rhyme Standing alone as the river flows by Watching the eagle climb into the sky He's free from the daily routine Seeing things he's never seen Away from the office he breaths the fresh air Drawing the circle surrounding the square He thinks of the moments lived in this place Thinks of the time that has swallowed this space Senses another there by his side The voice from inside him won't be denied We are the raindrops we are the flood We are the seekers of life flesh and blood We are the dreamers dreamt since our youth Til faced with your great inescapable truth Lost in a moment of time Caught between reason and rhyme Lying alone at the end of each day Talking to people with nothing to say Lost in a moment of time Caught between reason and rhyme Standing alone as the river flows by Watching the eagle climb into the sky Wind and the water cast shadows on land All disappear at the touch of his hand

Time is running out and as I see the fingers turning I can sense the smell of burning as our boats all disappear There's no time for choosing 'cos the choices that we've taken Have been stupid and mistaken and left nothing but our fear Time is running out is running out Time is running out and as I see this forest burning I can see that we're not learning from the wisdom of the past When the old one told us that the source of our pollution Was what once was their solution but was never meant to last Time is running out is running out Time is running out and as the iceberg melts the tears And the greed dissolves in fears at our shared sad suicide Change in hope together of the hope that changed tomorrow If we battle through the sorrow Then each person must decide Time is running out is running out

You've taken every turn Blood turned into stone Now looking at the sun The dancers have begun He is near You are here The little lights from nowhere Are dimming one by one Darkness flows around you The voices have all gone He is near You are here Roll Up The World Law-makers, fat-takers, chancers and kings Congressmen, presidents, gather your things Warriors, worriers, pilots and thieves The man who is lost and the woman who grieves Everything under the stars is alive Women and children are first to arrive Turn to the sun, remember to breath Let's roll up the world and see what's underneath Maybe it will be the old new world Before the day's release Let's roll up the world because My ghost dance is a dance of peace Wind-talkers, night-walkers, healers and priests Farmers and soldiers, the birds and the beasts Peacekeepers. visionaries, leaders of men Must climb to the top of the mountain again Everything under the stars is alive Women and children are first to arrive Turn to the sun, remember to breath Let's roll up the world and see what's underneath Maybe it will be the old new world Before the day's release Let's roll up the world because My ghost dance is a dance of peace Tear up the newspapers Turn out the light I need to make sense of the darkness tonight Where will we find Those left behind Surrounded by light A new sense of sight Where will we see What's meant to be A future unbound A new sense of sound Where will we find Find the night Turn out the light Darkness tonight I need to make sense of the darkness Roll Up The World World full of promises broken and torn World full of selfishness in which we're born Man's separations flashed gold by the night The whole earth becomes one great circle of light The young ones will ask when this great wisdom bells The lights in your eyes where the universe dwells The road man has told us to conquer our fears The soul has no rainbow if the eye has no tears No matter which side of the fence that you stand You're always behind it, your head in your hands The river is swollen, the waters run deep You can't wake a man who's pretending to sleep World full of promises broken and torn World full of selfishness in which we're born Man's separations flashed gold by the night The whole earth becomes one great circle of light The young ones will ask when this great wisdom bells The lights in your eyes where the universe dwells The road man has told us to conquer our fears The soul has no rainbow if the eye has no tears No matter which side of the fence that you stand You're always behind it, your head in your hands The river is swollen, the waters run deep You can't wake a man who's pretending to sleep
