Another World Is Out There

I played this song for a few weeks before the title came to me, and then it was another couple of weeks until I knew what it was about. In short, it is inspired by Joseph Campbell and the monomyth of the Hero’s Journey we are each called to. I hope it inspires you and that you share it if you like it.

We always start right where we are to become who we can

In this ordinary land

But another world is out there

To heed the call that beckons us

To abandon all our plans

adventure understands

That another world is out there

When first we refuse the call

Can’t see a way through it all

if we don’t jump, there’s no way we can fall

We feel so small

On the word of those who have blazed the paths before 

We can’t ignore

That another world is out there

The wisdom of the ages through our mentors

Calls us to explore

Because another world is out there

Though times seem dark, there is a light that is inside us

let it ignite us

to see another world is out there

Our leaders went astray, but there’s bliss we can follow

to build a new tomorrow

for the other world that’s out there.

Crossing that first threshold taking one step at a time

As we finally cross the line

Toward the other world that’s out there

We are tested, we are bested, we make enemies and friends

We will not be this way again

move toward the other world that’s out there

Your life is painted on the walls of your inmost cave

Yours is the only soul you can save

You fear life more than you fear the grave

But you must be brave

The only thing that’s in our way is our way

As we replay

The memories that we swear

Create our lives In the image of our ordeals

We will reveal

That another world is out there

We’re the heroes we’ve been waiting for to manifest our dreams

however bad things seem

another world is out there

We cannot wait for others to make the journey for us

embrace apotheosis

and see another world is out there

When opportunity presents itself

Will you sieze the sword?

Realize that the reward

Is that another world is out there

Be resurrected in the image of all possibilities

Make no apologies

For seeing that another world is out there

The road back home is littered with broken plans and shattered dreams

Yet it forks and it twists and it blossoms with wide-eyed strategies and schemes

To remind us that when life flows, gratitude makes it stream

Or so it seems

So a toast to the elixir of our evolution

May we see solutions

In the other world that’s out there

Though illusions make it seem we can’t achieve it

If we believe it

Another world is out there

The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure that you seek

there is no time to be meek

because another world is out there

The universe is calling us to be complete

feel it in our heartbeats

that another world is out there.
