Achilles Last Stand


It was an April morning when they told us we should go
And as I turned to you, you smiled at me, how could we say no?

With all the fun to have, to live the dreams we always had
With all the songs to sing, when we at last return again

Sending off a glancing kiss, to those who claim they know
Below the streets that steam and hiss, the devil’s in his hole

Oh to sail away, To sandy lands and other days
Oh to trust the dream, Hides inside and never seen.

Into the sun the south the north, at last the birds have flown
The shackles of commitment fell, in pieces on the ground

Oh to ride the wind, To tread the air above the din
Oh to laugh aloud, With dancing eyes we caught the crowds, yeah

To seek the man whose pointing hand, The giant step unfolds
To guide us from the curving path, That churns up into stone

If one bell should ring, in celebration for a king
So fast the heart should beat, As proud the head with heavy feet, yeah

Days went by when you and I, bathed in eternal summers glow
As far away and distant, Our mutual child did grow

Oh the sweet refrain, Soothes the soul and calms the pain
Oh Albion remains, sleeping now to rise again

Wandering and wanderings, What place to rest the search
The mighty arms of Atlas, Hold the heavens from the earth

Oh The mighty arms of Atlas,
Hold the heavens from the earth
From the earth… Earth…

I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way
I know the way, know the way, know the way, know the way

Oh the mighty arms of Atlas Hold the heavens from the earth.
om the earth.
