From the recording LIGHTING OUT


The Northern Mystery

Oh, the sea and sky turned turquoise from gray,
as we pulled away
We fear the dragons
that lay ahead,
less than those we've slayed

So with a last glance home
we pushed on

We rusted in our cities,
though they were made of gold -
the air was old

From over the walls
the horizon called
"Come to the sun!" -
So to a future so bold we run

A voice called from the sea,
Come to the mystery!
The Northern Mystery

The air felt new as we rounded the cape,
toward our northern escape

The compass just spun as we made
our way, by following fate
The past is done
History we chase, on and on

The voice called from the sea,
Come to the mystery,
The Northern Mystery
(It's the Northern Mystery)
The Northern Mystery
