Dreams of the hawk still haunt the summer sky
This dying land is broken, the river has run dry
We wept for the days of bird and butterfly
Long gone …so long

All the people say beware the mark of Cain
They would not dare to know your cares, the will not share your pain
Branded by a moment destiny ordained
For the sun …must shine on

We will be amazed by a grace that can heal
We will find a way to tell the world just how we feel
We will find some days still unbroken by the wheel …that turns

All our days are numbered, the darkest paths we tread
The monster cannot slumber for his dreams in red
In the dawn Able died, from the ground his blood cried
Long gone …so long

We will be amazed by a grace that can heal
We will find a way to tell the world just how we feel
We will find some days still unbroken by the wheel …that turns

PT II

These dark frustrations, this bitter night
You find her waiting. She’s out of sight
She offers you her passion. She offers you delight
You can give it up or give it up and say goodnight

Through the looking-glass, see the future in the past
And wear a coat of color

Going further than I can see
Through the eyes of my father who still loves me
In this haunted land is a wanted man
Looking for a favor, looking to be free

Through the looking-glass, see the future in the past
And wear a coat of color
