Childhood's End Lyrics

You shout in your sleep
Perhaps the price is just too steep
Is your conscience at rest
If once put to the test?

You awake with a stars
To just the beating of your heart
Just one man beneath the skies
Just two ears, just two eyes

You set sail across the sea
Of longpast thoughts and memories
Childhood's end
Your fantasies merge with harsh realities

And then as the sail is hoist
You find your eyes are growing moist
All the fears never voiced
Say you have to make your final choice

Who are you and who am I
To say we know the reason why
Some are born; Some men die
beneath one infinite sky

There'll be war, there'll be peace
But everything one day will cease
All the iron'll turn to rust
All the proud men'll turn to dust

And so all things, time will mend
So this song will end
