The Ikon

This song is by Todd Rundgren.

On a day like no other
In a time unique, in a place divine
Keep your eye on the ikon
Shining in the light of eternal mind

I went to sleep a blind man
But when I awoke I saw
The legions of the lonely
See their faces, hear them call

See how they hang on
Each one in a world of his own design
Listen to the ikon
Ringing with the sound of eternal mind

And the music plays forever
And it captures every ear
And the sound of barriers crashing down
Is the sweet harmony you hear

Still, be still
Too strong, so be still
Much too long, come down
Be still, look around
Listen here, be still
Hear the sound, be still
Still, be still
Still, be still

Still we are here, we are still
Will we sing sweet, sing we will
Still we are here, we are still
Nil is our fear, all is nil
Still we are here, we are still
Spill it let go, let it spill

Still we are here, we are still
Will we sing sweet, sing we will
Still we are here, we are still
Spill it let go, let it spill

Still we are here, we are still
Nil is our fear, all is nil
Still we are here, we are still
Will we sing sweet, sing we will

The question comes to mind
About what should be done
And how much of the old will die
That the new may be begun

But you don't have to be afraid
Of being alone with nowhere to run
You don't have to be afraid
To look yourself in the eye
You don't have to be afraid not to lie

Someone knows who you are
Someone watches over you
Someone knows how you feel
And someone feels the same

Still you never have to be afraid
(Never fear, for you are living in eternal mind)
Still you never have to be

For those who still recoil
For those who fear the pain
Of peering o'er the edge
Of a new and different plane

You don't have to be afraid
Whenever you go come back again
You don't have to be afraid
We live and we die
You don't have to be afraid to know why

Someone knows who you are
Someone watches over you
Someone knows how you feel
And someone feels the same

So you never have to be afraid
(Never fear, for you are living in eternal mind)
So you never have to be

So you never have to be afraid
(Never fear, for you are living in eternal mind)
So you never have to be
(Never fear, for you are living in eternal mind)

So you never have to be afraid
(Never fear, for you are living in eternal mind)
So you never have to be
