Some want to fly into the light of the sun
Turn away from the crowds
I'm gonna soar like a raven in and out of the clouds
In and out of the clouds

I wanna sing with the dolphins
As I dance with the sharks
Follow the saints and the sinners
Mix the light with the dark
Mix the light with dark

We're all busy searching for a way out of the night
Scratching and crawling toward the light
Running from shadows as we're waltzing down the lane
Thinking they're shooters taking aim
Turning a blind eye to the game

As I climb up the Mountain
In the fall of my life
I can't help but remember
What the summer was like
What the summer was like
Gotta mix the dark and the light
