Silk Road
lV
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Traveling down the Silk Road
Traveling down the Silk Road
Weaving the silver threads of knowledge
We spin our lives
Traveling down the Silk Road

Traveling down the Silk Road
Traveling down the Silk Road
Spanning a world in evolution
We journey on
Traveling down the Silk Road

We’re traveling down the Silk Road
To a different drum
To a different sound
To a better world
To a higher ground

We have a chance now
There’s a Silk Road connecting hearts and minds
Showing all mankind
Just what could be
And what should be
On the Silk Road

It’s a revolution of the common man
Saying “just let us live our lives in peace”
No sleepless nights,
No crying child
No fear, you hear?
No bloodshed
No thousands dead on CNN
Just peace instead
On the Silk Road

In ancient times this road transported
Silk and satin
Herbs and spices
Cinnamon ginger
Clove and musk
Ivory jade glass and gold
The intercourse of mankind young and old

The Golden Peaches of Samarkand
Ostrich eggs and opium
Buddhism!

Traveling down the Silk Road
Traveling down the Silk Road
Bridging the gap between the families
Of all mankind
Traveling down the Silk Road

Today
This same road
Spans the earth
Weaving its silver thread
Today
In the same way
Thoughts are born
As their ideas spread

More and more the road goes inward
Weaving through paths of consciousness
Spanning the concepts of many a mind
Traveling the innermost journey>>>

Yes more and more the road goes inward
To a world beyond space and time

[Short Interlude]

Today we still travel this road
It’s a different time
But the same old tale
Trying to bridge two worlds
But on a larger scale

It happened in America
With Martin Luther King
It happened in India
With Mahatma Gandhi
It happened in Egypt
With the people
The common man
The common man
The common man

Traveling down the Silk Road
Traveling down the Silk Road
Chasing the Age of Information
And on we go
Traveling down the Silk Road

Traveling down the Silk Road
Traveling down the Silk Road
Bridging the thoughts and grand ideas
Of all mankind
Traveling down the Silk Road

Traveling down the Silk Road
Traveling down the Silk Road
Weaving the silver threads of knowledge
We spin our lives
Traveling down the Silk Road

Traveling down the Silk Road

Traveling down the Silk Road
