Kansas — Carry On Wayward Son (live) lyrics

[Chorus]
Carry on wayward son,
There'll be peace when you were done.
Lay your weary head to rest,
Don't you cry no more.

[Verse 1]
Once I rose above the noise and confusion,
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion,
I was soaring ever higher,
But I flew too high.
Though my eyes I could see still was a blind man,
Though my mind I could think still was a mad man.
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming,
I can hear them say.

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
Masquerading as a man with a reason,
My charade is the event of the season.
And if I claim to be a wise man,
It surely means that I don't know.
On a stormy sea of moving emotion,
Tossed about I'm like ship in the ocean.
I set a course for winds of fortune,
But I hear the voices say.

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Carry on!
You will always remember.
Carry on!
Nothing equals the splendour.
Now your life's no longer empty,
Surely Heaven waits for you?

[Chorus]
