The Moody Blues

The Moody Blues are an English rock band. Among their innovations was a fusion with classical music, most notably in their 1967 album Days of Future Passed. more »

Blasting, billowing, bursting forth
With the power of ten billion butterfly sneezes 
Man with his flaming pyre
Has conquered the wayward breezes

 Climbing to tranquility 
Far above the cloud  Conceiving the heavens  Clear of misty shroud

 Higher and higher 
Now we've learned to play with fire
Go higher and higher and higher 

Vast vision must improve our sight  Perhaps at last we'll see and end
To our homes endless blight 
And the beginning of the free

 Climb to tranquility  Finding its real worth  Conceiving the heavens  Florishing on earth 

 Higher and higher 
Now we've learned to play with fire
Go higher and higher and higher
