Legends of the Lost and Found
We are the lovers We are bound to one another By a bond that is invisible Yet stronger still than time And we're locked into the motion That moves beneath the ocean Rolling toward the future That makes pain the only crime Now I know you are the answer You're the damsel and the dancer The angel with the devil eyes That knows about the beat You remove the masks and faces And you see the shadowed places That only witches look for In the cradle of the heat Have you heard of the Legend of the Lost and Found? It tells of a world turnin' upside down When all the kings have become the clowns The beggars are crowned The Legend of the Lost and Found So I become the reacher More the pilgrim than the preacher The savage's been ravaged By the visions of the smoke As I'm peeling back the layers To the passions of my prayers I have seen the ramparts Where the molten waters broke Your heart's a sacred kingdom That has colonized my soul My past's the shattered fragment That somehow you made whole Today's your gift to fondle Your offering to feel Tomorrow is the promise That somehow you've made real Have you heard of the Legend of the Lost and Found? It tells of a world turnin' upside down When all the kings have become the clowns The beggars are crowned The Legend of the Lost and Found So l'll sing you every silly, sad And happy song I know And you'll open every part of you That you've got left to show And I'll pour myself around you Like the sunshine drowns the field And in the golden softness we will yield And in the golden softness we will yield
