The Wall


The Wall - Kansas

I'm woven in a fantasy I can't believe the things I see

The path that I have chosen now has led me to a wall

And with each passing day I feel a little

More like something dear was lost

It rises now before me a dark and silent barrier between


All I am and all that I would ever want be


It's just a travesty towering marking

Off the boundaries my spirit would erase


To pass beyond is what I seek I fear that I may be too weak

And those are few who've seen it through to glimpse the other side


The promised land is waiting like a maiden that is soon to be a bride


The moment is a masterpiece the weight of indecision's in the air


It's standing there the symbol and the sum of all that's me


It's just a travesty towering blocking out the light and blinding me


I want to see


Gold and diamonds cast a spell it's not for me I know it well

The treasures that I seek are waiting on the other side


There's more that I can measure in the treasure of the love that I can find

And though it's always been with me I must tear down the Wall and let it be


All I am and all that I was ever meant to be in harmony


Shining true and smiling back at all who wait to cross
