Tropic of Cancer

There are runes carved in rock

That no one understands

Strange circles in cornfields

Did cloaked spaceships land?


A disappeared people

Left cities behind

A hundred ton statues

Moved miles so they find


  The mysteries are many
 
  In this strange, lovely world
 
  But none that could match
 
  The ones that unfurled

 
   When you walked up to me
 
   Naked and bleeding, so bold
 
   Brash and uncertain, hands cold
 
   Hiding great secrets untold
 
   You held all the cards I did fold


If you travel at light speed

You can never go home

In a room full of people

You can be so alone


Dream in bright colors

Of worlds far away

Read peoples' minds

The words they will say


  The questions are many
 
  Answers are few
 
  You look for the meaning
 
  Of the quest thrown at you

  
   From the look in her eyes
 
   Naked and bleeding, so bold
  
   Brash and uncertain, hands cold
 
   Hiding great secrets untold
 
   You held all the cards I did fold


If you walk on the water

Millions will pray

Say you've been to the mountain

Give freedom its' day


Compose sacred texts

Divinely inspired

Descend into hell

And put out the fire
