Pack up the caravan, fire up the engines and off we go
Ride the white dotted line into the great unknown
The everyday pressures and promises build up behind your eyes
Until the moment that you discover there's a coop to be flown
Oh ouroboros!

The white hot coals in my head are slowly fading to ashes now
Someday the fire will rise, but I will know what to do
Life rolls in circles and cycles never-ending and everlong
Where the ending starts and begins, there's still a me and a you
Oh ouroboros!

Order from the orderless
Form from the formless
Sight to the sightless
Life to the lifeless

Everything that we've ever wanted is happening here and now
A sense of peace and comfort unlike anything that we've known
The dogs are slumbering, constellations dancing above our heads
Sometimes the greatest treasures are the ones you don't get to own
Oh ouroboros!
