Long Way Home

from The Journey by Sinclair Soul



Composed by Ric Albano © 2007-2017
Recorded between 2007 and 2017 at Cygnus Wave and Saturation Acres recording studios
Produced by Ric Albano


Lost in the wilderness, the forest through the trees
All merge to emptiness as I am brought down to my knees
I pause for just a sec to let the world spin round
To reveal some open trek
Leading to tame, tended ground

But I’m still alive – yes, I’m still alive
Shrouded in bitterness,
I’ll crawl out of this wilderness and try

Counter, diverging paths, I’m forced to make a choice
Contend this demon’s wrath or let it silence my voice
No doubt I’ve done my slice to bring this on myself
But that pittance won’t justify
This rapid draining of health

But I’m still alive – But will I survive?
Biased towards happiness,
I’ll carve my creed in righteousness and pray...

Exoneration for squandering
The precious dawn of the Day…
That priceless jewel confined by it’s peripheral fuel
Any day can come the call to raze the walls
And suddenly be shown all that’s beyond
Knowing all that is gone,
Blown, pried from it’s bond
On the way home

Who leaves familiar farms, swan dives into the sea
Of vast transcendent charms, of vast uncertainty?

He who keeps it alive – the dream that survives
Drafted towards openness
Can almost feel the sweet caress of the sky...

That boundless cool, clad baby blue
Never seeming too hard to fly…
With wounded wings. ever sharpening
Will tomorrow bring just one more try?
To feel the pulse, to forge the ghosts,
To make the most and show just what can be
And know what it is like to be free
And grow into the predestined me
And flow in distinguished harmony

All the way home
