Ammonia Avenue

Written by Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons

Is there no sign of light as we stand in the darkness?

Watching the sun arise

Is there no sign of life as we gaze at the waters?

Into the strangers eyes

And who are we to criticize or scorn the things that they do?

For we shall seek and we shall find Ammonia Avenue

If we call for the proof and we question the answers

Only the doubt will grow

Are we blind to the truth or a sign to believe in?

Only the wise will know

And word by word they handed down the light that shines today

And those who came at first to scoff, remained behind to pray

Yes those who came at first to scoff, remained behind to pray

When you can't hear the rhyme and you can't see the reason

Why should the hope remain?

For a man will be tired and his soul will grow weary

Living his life in vain

And who are we to justify the right in all we do?

Until we seek until we find Ammonia Avenue

Through all the doubt somehow they knew

And stone by stone they built it high

Until the sun broke through

A ray of hope, a shining light Ammonia Avenue
