Carry on my wayward son
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

Once I rose above the noise and confusion 
Just to get a glimpse beyond the illusion 
I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high
 Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
 Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I'm dreamin', I can hear them say

 Carry on my wayward son
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

 Masquerading as a man with a reason 
My charade is the event of the season 
And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know
On a stormy sea of moving emotion
 Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean 
I set a course for winds of fortune, but I hear the voices say

 Carry on my wayward son
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more

 Carry on, you will always remember
 Carry on, nothing equals the splendor 
Now your life's no longer empty
 Surely heaven waits for you

 Carry on my wayward son
For there'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more
