Journey Of 1000 Years
by Kiss

Album: Psycho Circus (1998)
  • I know just where you come from
    Where all your yesterday's are gone
    And now you're done
    But you've only just begun
    It's time you opened up the door
    And now it's all very clear
    This journey of 1,000 years

    Can you feel it coming
    Can you feel it now
    Can you feel it coming
    Or is it the roar of the crowd?
    Can you feel it coming
    Can you hear it
    Or is it the roar of the crowd?

    Did you sleep without dreams
    Did you fly without wings
    Did you touch without feel
    Where nothing is real
    Did you feel it coming
    Did you hear it
    Or was it the roar of the crowd?

  • Brian from Chicago Area, Il"Did you sleep without dreams, did you fly without wings, did you touch without feel, where nothing is real?"

    These are variations of lyrics from the song "Within" on the Psycho Circus album, intended to wrap the concept of life (the "Psycho Circus") around the beginning and end of the album. Also, a musical theme found just before the guitar solo in the song "Psycho Circus" is repeated in this song by a strings section before thefade out, another indication of beginning/ending, a kind of loose concept found on the Psycho Circus album.
  • Dave from Melbourne, AustraliaThis song is brilliant. It just shows that KISS can write songs that ain't just about sex and rock n' roll.
  • Axeman from Melbourne, AustraliaKISS grunge album.
