All I Can See - Brendan James

I want to walk through this doorway.
I want to open my mind.
I want to pledge my allegiance to all I can find.
I want a car that will crash through the barrier to a road no one knows.
I want to feel less control, more abandon,
I want to land far from home.

The revolution of the earth around the sun is the perfect lesson of how it should be.
So if I cannot learn to journey and return, to never rest til I've seen all I can see.

I want to learn a completely new language, one I don't understand.
I want to help someone lost, someone helpless with the strength of my hands.
I want to come to the base of a statue built before they counted the years.
And there I'll fall with my face in my hands and cry and feel their hope in my tears.

The revolution of the earth around the sun is the perfect lesson of how it should be.
So if I cannot learn to journey and return, to never rest til I've seen all I can see.

Turning rides and pastures collide.
Colors and customs I've never seen.

I know I, yes, I know I will stumble, but time is precious, my friend.

Those who journey can easily understand, the more they see,
They more they learn, the more that they will be.
So this I swear to you, and this I swear to me.
I"ll never rest til I've seen all I can see.
No, I'll never rest til I've seen all I can see.

I want to know where the strength of a person lies,
In their past or their future.
Is it in the way that they hurt or they love themselves?
Or is it all an illusion?
I want to crawl from this skin that I'm painted in.
Body, please let it give.
I want to find the creator of all good things and ask what it means to live.
