lyrics

Don Quixote’s a marvellous man
and his quest; to ruin old Lucifer’s plans
Though half of the world see a maddening fool
Perception is how they’re ruled.
Don Quixote has valour and strength;
A fearless knight who will go to great lengths
To vanquish the monsters and level the soil
For his children’s children he toils.
What if all we see is illusion?
A circus, sane to our minds.
And the truth; obscured by confusion
That it looks perverse to the blind!
For Don Quixote, a treacherous path
He soldiers on as the Hyena’s laugh
They snarl and they tear at his iron-clad heels
Then turn and run as he kneels
What if all we see is illusion?
A circus, sane to our minds.
And the truth; obscured by confusion
That it looks perverse to the blind!
Beyond our eyes
And above our minds
Is a heaven that we can live
He’ll take you there
Fighting death’s great stare
For your children’s children...
Our children’s children
Now we stand at the opening void
But Don Quixote has trained since a boy
To capture the demons
And crush their black hearts
Believe, encourage and start.
