TITLE. LYRICS

Concert version

A means to an end

A legacy so far removed
One day will be improved
Eternal rights we
left behind
We were the better kind
Two the same, set free too
I always looked to you

We fought for good, stood side by side
Our friendship never died
On stranger ways, the lows and highs
Our vision touched the skies
Immortalists, we part too soon
I put my trust in you

A house somewhere on foreign soil
Where ageing lovers call
It's come to this, your final goal
Where dogs and vultures eat
Committed still, I turn to go
I put my trust in you

In you
Put my trust in you
