There's a cry in the forest, it's feathered and brown
And it echoes off of nothing as the trees come down
It's the sound of a sparrow hittin' the ground
It's the sound of one eternity bound
It's the sound of one eternity bound

There's a cry in the oceans, it's plaintive and blue
And it rises from the depths, breaks my heart in two
It's the dreams of the great whales running aground
For they know that they're eternity bound
For they know that they're eternity bound

Whoa eternity bound
Once they've passed into the timeless, they can never more be found
Is there anybody listening, tell me can you hear the sound
Of the gentle ones eternity bound
Of the gentle ones eternity bound

There's a cry in the heart of every woman and man
We've been crying in the darkness since the world began
Will we ever seek forgiveness, will we ever earn the crown
Or are we in turn eternity bound
Or are we in turn eternity bound

Whoa eternity bound
Once we've past into the timeless, we can never more be found
Is there anybody listening, tell me can you hear the sound
Of the lonely ones eternity bound
Of the lonely ones eternity bound
Of the lonely ones eternity bound
