lyrics

walking away
what did she say to me
calling
over the hill where your colors fade
fall on my feet
far out to sea watching the white waves
falling
far out from me, a change of heart so you believe
now you're here, say goodbye, simply disappear

point man for the empire
I cant see the light
you were stolen away at the edge of great cities
cuts like a knife
where the wind blows cold, you're oh so cold
have I fallen behind, a dead empire
all of my life

over my shoulder, a scene so dear to me
great cities of marble
ships upon the untamed sea
you will find me, reading the book of revelations
or the celestine prophecy
is it all in my imagination, is it fantasy
autumn cliffs, down I go
over rocks to the red kissed stone

Im out of time

point man to nowhere
are you still alive
forbidden colors wait for me in my dreams tonight
where the wind blows cold, you're oh so cold
have I fallen behind, a dead empire
all of my life

point man to the empire
I cant see the light
you were stolen away at the edge of great cities
cuts like a knife
where the wind blows cold, you're oh so cold
have I fallen behind, a dead empire
all of my life
