Further Up And Further In Lyrics

Looked for glory in the war
But his spirit longed for more
Cried for something that would last
So he searched for glory past
Scanning tomes of ancient lore
Finding gods from days of yore
So his questing turned from men
Further up and further in
Thus his heart would leap within
Further up and Further in
Closer than he’d ever been
Further up and further in

He could hear it in the songs
That lovers write and singers sing
Something in the writings of
A prophet and a poet king
There was glory to be had
But only on some distant day
When the greatest son of man
The son of God would lead the way
Here was something worthy of
Pursuing and without delay

So the soldier reckoned he had heard from God
Surely God had called him from some lofty realm on high
Off to the temples now
Search Him out
But a snare was planted there
Pleasing to the eye
Priestess, beauty
Show me -- glory
Priestess, beauty
Show me -- glory
Oh my heart finds true love
I’ll end my quest for you

Did you find it in her arms
Did you sense it in her spirit
Joy like a shadow
Found in her dark embrace

Tell me
Did you promise her the moon
Pledge to her the sunshine
Here on the front line
Where you had fought to free her soul

Where is the warrior
He has lost his sword and
Fallen at the feet of love

Hey now
Did you find that which you longed for
The thing which you called glory
What is the story
Have you forgotten all that you’d learned

Where is the warrior
He has lost his sword and
Fallen at her feet

So she spoke of the hidden things
Elder gods and the fairy kings
That dance in the groves
Bathed in the moonlight they sing
So you had to see for yourself
Now you’ll have to admit to yourself
What waited in dusky dales
Were nothing but fairy tales

And to think you nearly had it once
The hope of glory calls to everyone
Each of us
Who yearning
Will listen

Came the time to bid her farewell
Came the time to be rid of her spell
The ways of a warrior
Are seldom forgotten for long

Say good-bye to hearth and home
Heed the call and return to Rome
Take up the sword once more
And sail to some foreign shore
