If there isn't light when no-one sees
Then how can I know what you might believe?

A story told that can't be real
Somehow must reflect the truth we feel
Fade away, fade away
Vanish into smoke
Fade away, fade away, break the crystal ball

Oh, it's the sign, feels like the time!

On a small world, west of wonder
Somewhere, nowhere all
There's a rainbow that will shimmer
When the summer falls
If an echo doesn't answer
When it hears a searchin' sound
Then the beast is free to wander
But never seen around

And it's the Sign of the Southern Cross
It's the Sign of the Southern Cross, all right!
Sail away today, oh

From the book the word is spoken
Whispers from forgotten sound
Gather all around the young ones
They will make us strong
Reach above your dreams of pleasure
Give a knife to those who die
Look beyond your own horizons

Sail the ship of sighs
Fade away, fade away
Wake the crystal ball
Fade away, fade away
I can't accept it anymore!

On a real world, west of wonder
Somewhere, nowhere all
There's a rainbow see it shimmer
When the summer falls
From the book, the word is spoken
Whispers from forgotten sound
Gather all around the young ones
They will make us strong
It's the Sign of the Southern Cross
It's the Sign of the Southern Cross

Don't live for pleasure
Make life your treasure
Fade away!

Eight miles high, about to fall
And no-one there to catch you,
Look for the sign, the time,
The Sign of the Southern Cross, play on!
