Destiny Beckons

Songs of Ascension : Track 5

Said the mountain to the stream
Roll over me, I let you down
Said the sailor to the dream
Set me free, Let me drown

Said the hermit to the cave
I am you, Inside my mind
Said the junkie to the grave
You and me babe, What peace we find

If for a moment, Just for one second
Please release me, My destiny beckons
My destiny calls

Said the ocean to the land
Where we meet, Our souls entwine
So said God as he raised his hand
Humble and sweet, And drunk on wine

"Energy surrounds
Life takes life love lives
Deep deeper down
Thought is all that life is
"

Said the singer to the song
Where have you been, Hey man, where are you going
Said the word of babble on
Close your mind
Still the river's flowing
Still the river flows

If for a moment, Just for one second
Please release me, My destiny beckons
My destiny calls
