Lyrics

“Clarity of Vision”

Long tired day, sleeps awaiting me
In a bed where I'll lay just an hour from now
When I get home from this roaming around
Homeward bound, safe and sound from the noisy city

Bad news in papers
It seems always safer
On the next jump of land
Thoughts are so romantic

CHORUS
I know what I want
At least I really, really, really, really think that I do
I know what I want
And it involves you

It involves you
It involves you
It involves you

This is the way that it goes day by
We should all live in moderation
Sitting on a train, on a bus or plane
Who's to say what's the better mode of
Transportation

Got a pack on my back
Hit a pub – get whacked
Have some beers, thank you cheers
This is just a vacation

CHORUS
I know what I want
At least I really, really, really, really think that I do
I know what I want
And it involves you

Lost on a train in the middle of winter
Standing in the rain in the middle of Britain
One thing remains throughout all my endeavors
And that's a sore spot for you

Had a dream, it would seem that the meaning
Would be lost in the way of lack of patience
Here I am 19, on the wings of a dream
Confident without . . . hesitation, right

Bad news in papers
It seems always safer
On the next jump of land
Thoughts are so romantic

CHORUS
I know what I want
At least I really, really, really, really think that I do
I know what I want
And it involves you

(Excerpts from early Christian chants; Latin; early Middle Ages)

I know what I want
And it involves you
