And the darkness melts away into the morning sky
I close my eyes and cherish the light in a pious high,
I open up my windows but stand vigilant at my door
By the order of courage and honor, I travel to the evermore.
I roam the time in search of a Heart of Gold
Befriending my fate, I prophesize the mystical of the foretold,
I’ve been weathered and bruised, cast away and bluesed
But I stand strong to this new beginning, steadfast and mused.
