lyrics

Walking a silk road
A sojourn not a life abode
Ways are strange here
I think I kind of like it, though
Cannot choose the blood that runs through us
'Cause it's bestowed
I was born a Venetian
I'll always hold a piece of them
I may not return there
But still I've made my peace with them
I can't deny the urge to search the way to peace within

This ain't my home
I don't belong
This land where I roam
Is just for a song

A family name and debt
Attracted to the hard to get
Hard to get off it
Like a Khan's throne when the star has set
Legends born from paths long worn
I'll write and not forget
I look to the east then
Sons are said to rise again
I will rise when
I've become the dragon
Ancient seed, but still it feeds the hunger within

Wonder what happened to the caravan
Left wondering if there's a plan
Left wandering a barren land
Looks a lot like where it began
But it's not the same...I'm not the same
I lost the flame when I got contained
Unlike Noah, I was caught in the rain
No ark for my heart, a lot of pain
Ground is cold on the sole of my feet
Look back to behold my soul's defeat
Not a man to forget...but I can handle regret
Hand on my chest, I feel the same old beat
Same old heat beginning to rise
Same old grief beginning demise
New leaf turned, learning the skies
The journey's the prize
