lyrics:  

Here I sit by the banks of the river
Watching the rippled trees
Staring off I was alone I thought
But there's a frog who's watching me

So I walk a few steps and I stop and look
From the river to the sky to the trees
Then I walk a few steps and I look again
Until I really see

Walking the trail through the dark of the night
And we're leaving our world behind
Then you turn on the lights and lead the way
And I realize that we're all blind

So I walk a few steps and I stop and look
From the river to the sky to the trees
Then I walk a few steps and I look again
Until I really see

Sometimes I wonder why we look but do not see
We know the sound but do not hear the ocean
Steady rhythm calling
Pounding mountains crumble crawling
Rising tide will soon be falling
Though we roam away from shoreline
Still the earth it keeps a rolling
As the life in me keeps breathing
And my mind inside is knowing
That the waves continue calling me to join the sea

Well all alone is where I'll be
Without this civillization
But don't you know that culture is
The downfall of the nation

So walk a few steps and stop and look
From the river to the sky to the trees
And walk a few steps and look again
Until you really see
Until you really see
Until you really see
Until I really see
