Giant Steps

about

'Giant Steps' is epic in nature. Inspired by the world of fantasy author Stephen Donaldson -'The Land', the song evokes images of gigantic, mountanous lanscapes and impossible heights. As well as Paul's percussive guitar and vocal, the song also features beautiful strings and some Nordic chanting straight out of Skyrim.

lyrics

Last night I flew under the earth
I know it's true I swear to you
I unravelled pleasantly
My form was insignificant

I felt love as I shattered down to my atoms
I smiled somewhere inside as I lay in the wind

I settled in a mountain
I felt it through my billion parts
The stones could not contain me
My force was irresistible

So I fell and I flew through the rocks like thin air
'Til I came back together under the sun.

Here is where I am free
An endless possibility
Then I wake and it's gone like it never had been
I'm cold and I'm alone in a world with no imagination

Last night I ran with giant steps
And leaves on trees followed me
Roots and branches kept my step
I knew their names like brothers

Then I stopped at the place where desire was a desert
I brought love as a green sea and no need to breathe

Here is where I am free
An endless possibility
Then I wake and it's gone like it never had been
I'm cold and I'm alone in a world with no imagination

Here is where I am free
An endless possibility
Then a moment I cant tell the difference between
The man who's awake and the man in the dream
Then I wake and it's gone like it never had been
I'm cold and I'm alone in a world with no imagination
