  • I want to reach out and touch the sky
    I want to touch the sun but I don't need to fly
    I'm gonna climb up every mountain of the moon
    And find a distant man a-waving his spoon

    I've crossed the ocean, turned every bend
    I found the crossing near a golden rainbow's end
    I've been through magic and through life's reality
    I've lived a thousand years and it never bothered me

    Got no religion, don't need no friends
    Got all I want and I don't need to pretend
    Don't try to reach me, 'cause I'd tear up your mind
    I've seen the future and I've left it behind Writer/s: Frank Iommi, John Michael Osbourne, Terence Butler, William Ward
