Song Lyrics


The Tower

The Gardener mentioned to the
Coachman whispering to the
Chief Cook to the
Captain of the Guard and
The First Chief Officer to the
Most-High Chamberlain
To the eager princes’ ears
Of the land beyond Allthetime

Out through the garden was a door
Deep in the labyrinth far and wide
Where ivy’s hand had once obscured
Now caught the brothers’ wandering eyes

From here a tower rose so tall
Climbing, their minds were overcome
High in the sky over the wall
Seeing the Land of Yettocome

Really-Is:
If I could go
Just think to see another reign
Oh what I would learn
If I could know that Single Name
When I think how proud father would be
And one day when I am king
What honor it might bring

Seemsto-Be:
If I could go
Just think to unveil another realm
The bright ruby flame
Another jewel for The Crown
Other kings would seek my wisdom high
For the questions in this life
And I could tell them why
___

Deep in the garden was a door
They had passed many times before
Now as a secret all their own
Rising above all they had known

Stepping out into crystal skies
Seeing the kingdom far below
Yearning for what in future lies
Only if father’d let them go

Princes:
If we could go
Just to see another realm
(Just think to unveil another realm)
Just what we would learn
If we could know that single name
(A new jewel for the Crown)
It is time are we not our father’s sons
Ride for King and our Kingdom
To see what’s yet to come
___

Out through the garden was a door
Up through the tower to the sun
One caught a glimpse of what would be
One saw just what he might become

being or becoming
being or becoming
being or becoming
being or becoming

Princes:
Oh beyond the river lies
That which we can’t deny
Tell me can we go

Oh beyond the wall it shines
That which our soul desires
Tell me can we go

Oh beyond our world it lies
What is the grand design
Tell us can we go

Oh
(Just think of what we might find there)
Beyond the wall it shines
(What beauty so bright invites there)
That which our soul desires
(Tell me father)
Father tell me can we go

Oh
(We remember all that you told us)
Beyond our world it lies
(Know the Crown will forever hold us)
What is this grand design
(Tell us father)
Father let us go
