Far across the water, far across the sea
Magician among the spirits, the next delivery
And the scene is set up by the boy who lost his mind
A certain smell of ether as machines unwind
Universe of distant stars chilling in its failings
With planets spinning deep in space parading all its flavors
We sit and stare into the night and contemplate forever
Slip away into your dreams, conclude that we may never
Out and past the harbour where the sharks dream in the waves
Magician among the spirits is drowning in a cave
As Solomon's my witness, as Gabriel is my guard
Garden of the lovely ones or the devil's back yard
Hand of God has sprinkled jewels inside the velvet ceiling
Filling up our unsure hearts with wonder, awe and feeling
All the eyes are staring down and glitter like small children
Their secrets kept, but lost in thought, looking at what fueled them
Singing about the old times, sepia and faded
Magician among the spirits the past has been invaded
Robert Houdini in the distance, we look up through the water
See the comet's silver trail, see the planets falter
Vastness of science, eternal night shrouded in dark mazes
Runes and tunes and frequencies flowing through their phases
Your air or cover, wind is dead, consequences endless
Speed of light in empty time, no borders to defend us
Walking in the wilderness with my pale sister
Magician among the spirits, I said how much I missed her
Jackson on the slipstream, he's moving all around
Chasing tiny orphans, following the sound, following the sound
Fragile and delirious, cannot understand it
Magician among the spirits, Electra and Miranda
Passed you in a corridor, you were drinking Grenadine
Drinking liquid happiness, your tears could not be seen, tears could not be seen
Violent sun propels its rays to seek out beings breathing
Ancient craft that waltz the maze of metal shells beneath me
And dust that swirls, of reddened clouds, and floats above the surface
Deserted landscape slip away, forgotten secret purpose
Thin film of moisture, condensing on the screen
Magician among the spirits, are you with us, Christine?
Do you really remember the boy I used to be?
With you every single night in February
All this ectoplasm, believe in ghosts
Magician among the spirits, lord of hosts
Here we are tonight, we're speaking to the light
Magician among the spirits, make it alright
[Steve speaks in Swedish here. Translation follows.]
"Magician!, magician!, my star!
From where on earth do you look out, into outer space!
I am in a forest heather!
You shall not find me again!
Farewell my daughters, I'll see you soon!"
