(For The World is Hollow And I Have Touched The Sky)

Farewell, dear Leonard, for you have gone away;
Back to the stars you've flown.
Your truth has ended the oracle's rule;
Now I lead my people alone.
You brought us knowledge, and hope for our world;
The prophecied journey's end;
Your love and courage have helped us find
The way to the Promised Land.
For the world is hollow and I have touched the sky,
And the vision I see can be ours;
For when Yonada has reached her final home
Then I'll follow you to the stars.
I love you Leonard, and know I always will;
That truth speaks clear to me.
Our laws have told us that faith should be blind,
But you opened my eyes and I see.
Yes, the way of the faithful is love, not fear,
And you opened my eyes and I see.
