From above, I've watched us drift apart, drift apart
Now I look at the screen As I wander into doors of shredded ribbon
Two golden glowing moons, changing shape
Star Sun and Moon Man leads a way underground
"Everyone who dwells here is safe"
And it is there I think of ways To tangle myself in wires
Until the will to untie my knots is gone
I turn blue before your eyes From a chemical in my design
And I will revel in the view Of colors and pixels not seen in my life
I hear things I always wanted to hear from someone I always wanted to know
"What you were seeking was worth waiting for"
Never bending to break, or sleeping to dream

Alone, from above I can hear your words To the Ghost of Wonders and Signs
And for a moment I see myself returning to the Earth in four broken pieces
As Simon, Deceiver of Men
Would you have this gift To bewitch with wonders and signs
And for the payment your silver and gold
I pray for your soul O Simon refuter so that your sins may be forgiven you
As you diminish may your wealth diminish with you
As the night wore on they spoke to me "Someday we'll be back to take you away"
The Hunter was dressed as the Sorcerer fell to his death
Returns to the four corners of the Earth
And I saw the emerging monotheistic storm clouds
And the sick were made well again
