Hundreds of Thousands

Hundreds of thousands
Have tried

Hundreds of thousands
Have failed

And hundreds of thousands
Will try again

For when they sail the seven seas
They will do as they please

But what were they seeking
If they weren't considered a weakling

Hundreds of thousands may never find
And their lives to catch were left behind

The journey has a golden goal
To seek deep within the soul

Me, young and old, why are you going
The vessel in course is flowing

Where is their direction, I may never know
I may never know where they go

I wonder what trials they may face
Passing time continuam and space

But when the time they have is passing
Do they think what they have is lasting

Hundreds of thousands
Have died

Hundreds of thousands
Will be born

And the process will begin again
They will know when it is when

The ending, beginning with a new start
Again it's another journey to the heart

Where will they go, and what will they do
Again I may never know

But one thing to say,
they know the way.

Beginning with those...

Hundreds of Thousands
