Waves can't break without rocks that dissolve into sand 
We can't dance without seasons upon which to stand 
Eden is a state of rhythm like the sea Is a timeless change 
Turn your eyes to the world where we all sit and dream 
Busy dreaming ourselves and each other into being 
Dreaming is a state of death, can't you see? 
We must live through who we are 
If we can sing with the wind song 
Chant with thunder Play upon the lightning 
Melodies of wonder 
Into wonder life will open 
We are children of the river we have named "existence" 
Undercurrent and surface pass in the same tense 
Nothing is confined except what's in your mind 
Every footstep must be true 
If we can sing with the wind song 
Chant with thunder Play upon the lightning 
Melodies of wonder Into wonder life will open
