Threshold - The Rubicon lyrics

Out across the water staring to the shore
Standing on the threshold of a dream
No prior warning no overture
Just a sudden ocean from the stream

Isolation never was a violation
Domination never was a destination

We flew our colours
Always on the run
And all our gains
Were shadows in the sun
But as we journey through the fall
So uncertain of it all
We never come undone
Or crossed the Rubicon

Out across the valley variation comes
Now the girl of summer disappears
No demonstration no loaded gun
No defend the ones who brought us here

Condemnation never was a contemplation
Domination never was a destination

We flew our colours
Always on the run
And all our gains
Were shadows in the sun
But as we journey through the fall
So uncertain of it all
We never come undone
Or crossed the Rubicon

(SOLO)

A spring of much potential
A summer so eventful
And so we carry on
An autumn to sustain us
So winter won't betray us
And so we carry on

We fought against all reason
To last another season
And so we carry on
Dependent on the kindness
Of those who stand behind us
And so we carry on

(SOLO)

Condemnation never was a contemplation
Domination never was a destination

We flew our colours
Always on the run
And all our gains
Were shadows in the sun
But as we journey through the fall
So uncertain of it all
We never come undone
Or crossed the Rubicon

(Instrumental)

Never really thought we'd come so far
Everyone has something more to lose
Never really thought it's all we are
So we must invent again ourselves
Never really thought we'd fade away
I have given to you all you have
Never really thought we'd see the day
A future generation devising its past
Never really thought we'd lose these things
All you ever thought will fall to the ground
Never really thought we'd spread our wings
Your struggle with the stars comes crashing down
Never really thought we'd touch the sun
The truth behind the end remains unseen
Never really thought what we'd become
A penny for the one you'd thought you'd be
