Lift - lift me high
Teach me why
I've been born in a world of pain
So confused in a masquerade
Some give a smile while they hold a blade
So I ran - so far away
Night turned to desolation days
Raining down - so out of phase
Then came the silver lightning days

High as the winds of yesterday
As the mountains melt away
While we're walking on a wire
Lost in a world that's worlds away
We will ride the lightning day
As we set our souls on fire
Ride it out
Ride the lightning

Race - race the sky
Wind me up
Get all cranked on the world stage
That north wind buzzin' by
Find yourself in a corporate high
But you're crackin' up
Breaking down
Your best friends have all left you now
There's no stance left to take
Maybe it was all just a big mistake

High as the winds of yesterday
As the mountains melt away
While we're walking on a wire
Lost in a world that's worlds away
We will ride the lightning day
As we set our souls on fire
Let's ride it out
Ride the lightning

Ride the lightning

[Iii. Black gold]

There is no place top hot
To mine the blackest gold
You gave her birth
And new you watch her growing old
If life is leaving tomorrow
We'll turn our backs to all sorrow
And in a dancing ghost town
That's the end of story

You watch the crops keep dying
And people pray for rain
Seeing all the blood and blackness
Running in her veins
In desert towns lies the panic
The piercing sun beats satanic
And still we're drowning in a flood
That sees no end

The river flows - black as gold
That river glows - taint your soul
The river flows - black as gold
That river glows - taint your soul

And so the king of karma lost his only son
You haven't lived in full
Until you've tried that once
The sacrifice is just massive
The hurt is fast and aggressive
If you unearth the darkness
You must pay the price!

The river flows - black as gold
That river glows - taint your soul
The river flows - black as gold
That river glows - taint your soul

[Iv. Walking the road]

Many days I've wondered far and wide
It's just me and my pride
This planet's so wide and there's nowhere to hide
From myself

And many moons I've gazed on
High and low
While I'm searching my soul
This land is so vast yet I still see my past
In myself

As I look to the sky in wonder
At this mystical map that we're under

What should I do now and where do I find how
To find myself, define myself

As I walk this road will I ever
Find that solution to my resolution, yea
And as I take each step will there be that
Real comprehension of my redemption

What should I do now and where do I find how
To find myself, define myself

[V. Desolation days]

High on a hill there sits a man
Who is watching himself
Wondering what is the truth he lives inside
Breaking asunder
His castle melts into sand
He sits in the wreckage he made with his
Own hands

Out of the cry of every pain
From the realm of doubt and shame
Where we sink in dust and mire
There in our desolation days
Where the heart sick human race
Seeks to fill its own desires
We can ride it out
Ride the lightning

Where are you now?
Are you just grasping for gold rings while you can
Hoping to make it into fulfilment land
But it's never coming
Not that way my friend
But there is still time
You can change your life again

Out of the cry of every pain
From the realm of doubt and shame
That's where god will lift us higher
There in our desolation days
From the well of wisdom's place
We will drink our true desire
And all will be made right
Just ride the lightning

[Vi. Lemon looking glass (instrumental)]

[Vii. Ride the lightning (reprise)]

High as the winds of yesterday
As our fear is washed away
We'll be walking through the fire
There on the mountain we will sing
As his life fills everything
We will live our true desire
Let's ride it out
Ride the lightning
