  • It's not a place, it's a yearning
    It's not a race, it's a journey
    It's not an act, it's attraction
    It's not a style, it's an action

    It's a dream for the waking
    It's a flower touched by flame
    It's a gift for the giving
    It's a power with a hundred names

    Surge of energy, spark of inspiration
    The breath of love is electricity
    Maybe time is bird in flight
    Endlessly mocking
    Here we come out of the cradle
    Endlessly rocking
    Endlessly rocking

    It's a hand, that rocks the cradle
    It's a motion, that swings the sky
    It's method on the edge of madness
    It's a balance on the edge of a knife
    It's a smile on the edge of sadness
    It's a dance on the edge of life

    Surge of energy, spark of inspiration
    The breath of love is electricity
    Here we come out of the cradle
    Endlessly rocking
    Endlessly rocking

    Surge of energy, spark of inspiration
    The breath of love is electricity
    Maybe time is bird in flight
    Endlessly rocking

    Here we come out of the cradle
    Endlessly rocking
    Endlessly rocking

    Endlessly rocking
    Endlessly rocking

    Endlessly rocking
    (Endlessly rocking, endlessly rocking)

  • John from Asheville, NcPerfect bookend to the opening with One Little Victory. Great lyrics here..."it's not a race, it's a journey." Consistently building pace that becomes relentless. Nice album closer. Endlessly rocking...indeed.

If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
