JON ANDERSON lyrics - Sharpening The Sword

JON ANDERSON
"Sharpening The Sword"

I've been walking in the
Shoes of a silent stranger
I've been dancing in the city
Of a broken motion
I've been running through
The first and last explosion
I've been dancing on the sins
Of the diamond reason
I've been flying up and down
The stairs of illusion
I've been running faster
Then I need to go
I've been running faster
Then I need to go

Shame shame of life, shame shame of life, shame shame of life
I've been running at the mountain forgiveness
Forever change my life
And the more I feel it in my heart
I can always take the time to know it's right
Time to know it's right
Time to know it's right

I've been flying faster
Than the eagle soars into the sky
Walking through the doors
Of shame, letting everything go by
Spinning in the deepest ocean
Diving in the last emotion
Climbing up the diamond mountain
Looking for the mountain light

Looking for the mountain light
Looking for the mountain light
Looking for the mountain light
Looking for the mountain light

I've been swimming in the sea of illusion
Dancing for the rites of love
Crashing through the walls of fear
Looking heard but I did not see
After all the songs of revolution
The battles with heaven's light
But if they did not really look
They did not really answer to the call

Living in the fire of the living wisdom
Sharpening the sword of the samurai

Living in the fire of the living wisdom
Sharpening the sword of the samurai

Living in the fire of the living wisdom
