Lyrics

 All that is, was and will be
 Universe much too big to see
 
 Time and space never ending
 Disturbing thoughts, questions pending
 Limitations of human understanding
 
 Too quick to criticize
 Obligation to survive
 We hunger to be alive
 
   (Twisting, turning through the never)
 
     All that is, ever
     Ever was
     Will be ever
 
     Twisting
     Turning
     Through the never
 
 In the dark, see past our eyes
 Pursuit of truth no matter where it lies
 Gazing up to the breeze of the heavens
 On a quest, meaning, reason
 Came to be, how it begun
 All alone in the family of the sun
 Curiosity teasing everyone
 On our home, third stone from the sun
 
   (Twisting, turning through the never)
 
     All that is, ever
     Ever was
     Will be ever
 
     Twisting
     Turning
     Through the never
 
 On through the never
 We must go
 On through the never
 Out to the
 Edge of forever
 We must go
 On through the never
 Then never comes
 
   (Twisting, turning through the never)
 
     All that is, ever
     Ever was
     Will be ever
 
     Who we are
     Ask forever
 
     Twisting
     Turning
     Through the never
 
 Never
