A wave toward the clearing sky

All this time we're talking and sharin' our rational view
A billion other voices are spreadin' other news
All this time we're livin' and tryin' to understand
Why a billion other choices are makin' their demands?

Talk of a peaceable kingdom
Talk of a time without fear
The ones we wish would listen
Never going to hear

Justice against the hanged man
Knight of wands against the hour
Swords against the kingdom
Time against the tower

All this time we're shuffling and layin' out all our cards
While a billion other dealers are slippin' past our guards
All this time we're hopin' and prayin' we all might learn
While a billion other teachers are teachin' them how to burn

Dream of a peaceable kingdom
Dream of a time without war
Ones we wish would hear us
Have heard it all before
A wave toward the clearing sky
A wave toward the clearing sky
A wave toward the clearing sky

The hermit against the lovers
Or the devil against the fool
Swords against the kingdom
The wheel against the rules

All this time we're burning like bonfires in the dark
A billion other blazes are shooting off their sparks
Every spark a drifting ember of desire
To fall upon the earth and spark another fire
To fall upon the earth and spark another

A homeward angel on the fly
A wave toward the clearing sky
A homeward angel on the fly
A wave toward the clearing sky
A wave toward the clearing sky
