The Circle Breaks - from "The Journey Into"

A man walks down a beaten path
his hands are worn and cracked
haunted by the images of his past
there's nothing left but to look back

Standing incomplete and alone
her leaves will fall no more
with all the things that she's been shown
if only she had known before

As the circle breaks the trend
good things must always end
you will see that life lives for you
and that you can transcend
when you take the things you've found
and stop to look around
you will see it's not the end
when the circle breaks the trend

A soft wind blows and with it brings
the scenes of days long past
when leaves were green and branches strong
those days went by so fast

As he walks a path leads to
an old friend he once knew
in this holy place he used to play
to wash all pain and fear away

As the circle breaks the trend
good things must always end
you will see that life lives for you
and that you can transcend
when you take the things you've found
and stop to look around
you will see it's not the end
when the circle breaks the trend

He stops to rest and catch his breath
a leaf descends onto the ground
he then looks up, he's taken back
left in awe by what he's found

A better thing they could not find
as night proclaims the end of day
as he leaves this world behind
he's finally found the place he'll stay

As the circle breaks your trend
good things must always end
you will see that life lives for you
and that you can transcend
when you take the things you've found
and stop to look around
you will see it's not the end
when the circle breaks your trend
