I'll play upon my violin until the mountains ring
Of lonely laughter blindly thrown
Across an endless ark of strings
And the skies are set to dancin' to
a silent symphony
And the velvet voices all shall join the singing

The hall is filled to every corner by a tinkling hint of chimes
A melody careens and crumbles
Leaving just a trace behind
A rhythm falters, faintly fails
The silver on it's wings
And the velvet voices all shall join the singing

The cymbals flash, the drums they crash
The trumpets rise to song
The brass baton plucks bits o' diamonds
From a glittering wall of almost dawn
The crystal chords they slash the wind in humble majesty
And the velvet voices all shall join the singing
