Pearl's Dream

There's a place I must go
There's a place I must go
It's not a place I have seen
But Ill get there in a blue dream

Down an ocean road
Past a sign that says 'good love town'
Into a darkness where the stars do drown
Where the starry me needs to be free

And when the battle was done
I was promised my sun
But with a thousand nights gone
To any kingdom I run

And when the battle was done
I was promised my sun
But with a thousand knights gone
To any kingdom I run

There's a place I must go
There's a place I must go
For my heart is a child
That stumbles lonely for the arms of the wild

Hear the desert sigh
Sing the city's lullaby
The giant iris of the wide blue sky
Showing me the way

And when the battle was done
I was promised my son
But with a thousand knights gone
To any kingdom I run

And when the battle was done
I was promised my son
But with a thousand knights gone
To any kingdom I run

You know that it's time to go up, up, up, up, up
Had a big machine riding your shoulders
You know that it's time to go up, up, up, up, up
Had a big machine riding your shoulders
You know that it's time to go up, up, up, up, up
Had a big machine riding your shoulders
