Climbing a stair towards an uncertain goal
Ages pass with each step you take forward
The stairs fall away behind you as you ascend
Towards the apex of this infinite tower

A spiral stairway suspended upon a pole,
this axis is the keystone of time
Another persona, stage or role,
another journey, adventure or rhyme

Who places pressure, who entices
Who frames images and cuts time in slices
Who raises the tower and who chooses to climb
Who can unlock the keystone of time

Who chooses the season in which to begin
Who gazes outward, and who looks within
Who smashes the tower as the stars align
To unlock the secret of the keystone of time
