distant vision lyrics – kansas

on a night as i lay sleeping, in a dream i
saw the sh*r* of a distant land where/
promise lay in wait/ and i heard the
sound of voices of a million hungry
souls/ now it comes to me to lead them to the gate

but i am just a man, not worthy of this
plan / with a strength that’s not my own,
imust rise

and i… will bear the light, (and the
vision leads me onward) / that
blind… men have their sight / i’d sail a
thousand seas to make it so

to the kings i gave the mission, in the
hope that they would share / in the joy
of setting countless captives free / but
the l*st for gold and power, is luring us
away / from a calling that began in purity

and ‘m still just a man, not worthy of
this plan / with a strength that’s not my
own, i must rise

now a tempest rages in my heart, as this
fever furies on / soon these islands
promise rest and hope, my answers wait
beyond their sh*r* / dream on…

hungry eyes are standing on the sand,
they beckon us to bring the tide /
sovereign hand must hold me now, i plead
with you / be my soloace and my guide… by
my side

and i… will walk with you / on the
sh*r*s of the land ofpromise / that
blind… men see you too / i’d sail a thou-
sand seas to make it so
