VISION OF A NEW DAWN
Copyright 2013 Mike Visaggio

I have awakened, I have awakened,
In a place where I've arrived I know not how
And in my waking I've been seen making
All the markings of a life in the here and now

I have been searching, I have been searching
For a dream whose start and finish I composed
But in my dreaming I wanted meaning
And a life of independence from all foes

   In spite of all the things I wished upon my pillow
   In spite of nothing that I took for granted shown
   There is a land I know that I must find
   A place where I can rest my mind
   A people waiting for my coming
   And a freedom kept unknown

You tried to greet me, you tried to greet me
In the space where you had found me unaware
And in your greeting, you found me fleeting
For the moment wasn't meant to be a dare

You told me stories, you told me stories
And the endings happily on the other shore
I found compelling what you were selling
But there's a line that I must follow evermore

   Because of all the thousand dreams upon my pillow
   Because of knowing that my place elswhere must be
   There is a life I know that I must find
   An aura tyrants cannot bind
   Another vista for my vision
   And the last eventuality

Vision see                    Light is here                      Soar like birds
New to me                    And still a tear                   Speak the words
Dawn its name              Another life                        And take flight
A world insane              Sharpens the knife             To reach the heights

----- instrumental ----

Vision see,
New to me
Dawn its name,
Bright freedom flame

In celebration, in celebration
Of the realized individual I shall live
From your derision comes my decision,
A collective hope is not my debt to give

So I will stand here, yes I will stand here,
And proclaim the truth that you don't want to hear
Just in my passing, say I was lasting
One must take the reins of life to conquer fear

     I have held a miracle in between my trembling hands
     And I have lived the moment where I stood between two lands
     I've seen the stellar lightning that illuminates the plan
     And in the day it comes to pass
     And in the promise it will last
     The price of the true brotherhood of man
