The gov'ner commissions a group to cross the desert, tear open the fabric of time, enter into the unknown, gather the secrets of the universe, and return to tell the tale.


One in a million
Or so we were told
We received orders from the gov’ner
Cross the desert; seek the wisdom
Fetch it from the farthest fold

The sunlight fighting furious
In the sky a single hawk
The desert with its secrets
We gathered for the walk

The long walk home

We have one story to tell
Good God and it’s a good one
You will remember it well
For passing to your children
These motions begged in our heads
For congregation
So we give you peace in your beds
And you may rest well
You sent the best
We lay your sleepy, weeping
Weary heads to rest

Jesus Christ you would not believe me
If I told you what I saw
Beyond the desert’s charade
Yes we tore down all the walls

The dance was something brilliant
Blazing flurries; winds of sand
We trembled with the knowledge
Of the eternal man

And turned to face long walk home
