Hang the clouds all low for me
I'll jump on one for to see
The world above, the world beneath
Jump on one for to see!

A hidden longing in my heart
A hidden wish, a hidden fear
And the clouds are gathering
Peace to show and peace to bring

And the clouds are carrying
Marble statues, heavy load
And I tried to jump on one
But hopelessly, I fell through it

The load that I'm carrying
No rocks and stones or iron bones
I feel so helpless, oh down here
Cannot see what makes me free

Can you lift my spirit high?
Can I manage to reach the sky
Everybody's doing on their own
Building up their own thrones

That won't ever reach the sky
Those are blind in a race
That turns out to be a chase
Hunting one another down

Old stories on storyteller's graves
Philosophy books on library shelves
Old sayings from old men
Maybe I'm one of them

So hang the clouds all low for me
I'll jump on one for to see
Down by the riverside
Jump on one for to see!
