About the wonder of discovery


Standing on the shoulders of giants

Crawling 'cross a glittering plain, searching for a key to explain
Senses leading you on, deep into forever beyond

Gaze out on an ocean so wide, open up a box that beguiles
Climb up on the shoulders of giants, open up your eyes

Ch: And you might find you can use your mind
Read the signs, standing on the shoulders of giants

Look out at the world that surrounds, marvel at the vision and sound
Keep on journeying on, deep into forever beyond

Climbing up a mountain so high, reaching from the land to the sky
Stand up on the shoulders of giants, you can see for miles

Ch: And you might find the secrets of the mind
Art and science, stand up on the shoulders of giants
