Shinning glass house high on a hill
Clouds hangs low distant and still
The wind cuts through leaving you weak
Whispers of memories so dangerous so deep

The mind in its folly is lost and alone
It floats to the surface in search of the song
The light from the hilltop is blinding and bright
It glows in the shadow hangs on the night
You hear in the darkness riding the wind
The soft inner whisper the beginnings of man

He stands in the framework speaking your name
Calls with a vengeance in a voice that sounds strange
He smiles as he beckons trying to speak
Of lives you have lived in places you seek

You rise to float to him in the house born of glass
To find you’re way slowly back to the past
You stumble you tremble
Your movements bogged down
You reach for your footing
You need solid ground

Then out of midnight the wind starts to weep
It blows straight through you seeping in deep
The house on the hilltop is brilliant and bright
It shines in its beauty caressing the night

Yet here in the beauty you refuse to see
How the search for beginnings
Always leads you to me
The house rises slowly
Breathes its last breath
It shatters the silence
It falls to its death

The man in the frame work
Is fading from view
Lost in the glass house
The memories we knew
