Well I heard there was a colour
Beyond the power of any human word to ever describe
And I saw it myself one day
It was a long way away and dark was the glass that covered my eye
It was the glory whose story will not be contained

Well I fought in the battle
And I prayed every night that the side on which I fought was right
But my hands were covered
In the blood of the brother whose life I tried to save
Where was the glory whose story will not be contained?

Well I walked in the desert
I was weary and worn in that dry and thirsty land
But my thirst was not quenched that day
I was sustained by a hope my words cannot describe

I walked on and on 'till there was nothing left
Only skin and bones and feeble breath
My flesh consumed by the passion of my soul
And i must confess in my weakened state
I saw demons in just about every place
And every one of them offered me the world

But I could not stop to trade with them
Their flesh blood bones held no temptation
My eyes were fixed on what I could not see
And eventually they left me there
And angels came to carry me
But I still wasn't any closer to what I seek
