songs of distant earth by The Sirius Cybernetics Corporation (atari/.de) [web] & Cream (atari/.de) [web]

          Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
                     In a world of magnets  and miracles
             Our thoughts strayed  constantly and without boundary
                  The ringing of  the division bell had begun

                 Along the Long Road  and on down the Causeway
                      Do they still meet there by the Cut

            There was a ragged band  that followed in our footsteps
                   Running before time  took our dreams away
      Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
                      To  a life consumed by slow decay

                            The grass was greener
                           The light  was brighter
                           With friends surrounded
                            The nights  of wonder

           Looking beyond the embers  of bridges glowing behind us
             To a glimpse of how green  it was on the other side
              Steps taken forwards but  sleepwalking back again
                   Dragged by the force of some inner tide

                   At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
            We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

                  Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
                     There's a hunger  still unsatisfied
                  Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
               Though down this road  we've been so many times

                            The grass was greener
                           The light  was brighter
                            The taste was sweeter
                            The nights  of wonder
                           With friends surrounded
                            The dawn mist glowing
                              The water flowing
                 .....        The endless river
