(Vocals Start In Again)

Once I rose above the noise and confusion,
just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion

I was soaring ever higher ,  but I flew too high.
Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man

Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming I can hear them say

Don't you cry no more X2

Masquerading as a man with a reason,
my charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man   It surely means
that I don't know.

On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about I'm like a ship on the ocean
I set sail for winds of fortune   but I hear the voice's say

Carry on my wayward son,
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest,
Don't you cry no more
 
Carry on       You will allways remember
carry on       nothing equals the splendor
Now your life's no longer empty   surely heaven waits for you.

What you have isn't bad, but it's not everything. I'm sure I don't need to tell you what you're missing.
