Let's dance, stop to fight
We do the paradigm shift tonight
Yeah, it's a natural drift alright
And it's coming up out of the blur
Out of your mind from deep below
The hidden harmonies discover
Chaos-- which means order
Its evolution is a spiritual way

For quietness is stronger than motion
And silence is stronger than sound
We're listening to the tone which is not played
Nothing is what we want
Quietness is stronger than motion
And silence is stronger than sound
Nothing is what we get
But the holistic moment of all
Yes, that is the way
Do you hear the river flow?
Do you hear it? Yes.
Do you hear it flow?

You talked yourself into wrong questions
You don't care about the answers
You let the others be the good ones
You're part of the deathbringing system
There's no place where you can hide
Stop chasing the wrong gods of time
Stop chasing the wrong gods of time
Stop chasing the wrong gods of time
Chasing the wrong gods of time
Chasing
The wrong gods of time
I'm running out of time
I'm running out of time
I'm running out of time
Time kills

You're lowering hopes much too much
Getting into the grind much too much
And losing faith in your abilities
The loyalty to your beloved system
Of belief must surrender
To chaos, which means order
Evolution's not a model of yours

For quietness is stronger than motion
And silence is stronger than sound
We're listening to the tone which is not played
Nothing is what we want
Quietness is stronger than motion
And silence is stronger than sound
Nothing is what we get
But the holistic moment of all
Yes, that is the way
Yes, that is the way
Do you hear the river flow?
Do you hear the river flow?
Do you hear it flow?
Do you hear it?
