The fog has just lifted revealing the gray
Hills that are rolling, rolling away
Bird songs invoking an echo of home
Sigma Oasis is waiting alone

A stone in the harbor, a ripple at sea
A breeze in the parlor, the bend of your knee
The water train lurches and floats off the track
Sigma Oasis is calling us back

So take off, take off, take off your mask
The fear's an illusion, so don't even ask
You're finally weightless, so take to the air
Sigma Oasis, you're already there

It's always a search or a hunt from the start
Seeking a memory dear to the heart
You're finally weightless, so take to the sky
Sigma Oasis goes sailing on by

So take off, take off, take off your mask
The fear's an illusion, so don't even ask
You're finally weightless, so take to the air
Sigma Oasis, you're already there
You're already there

Our ligaments falter, we scatter like art
In furrows assemble what tides pulled apart
The work on the bone fragment jigsaw may cease
Sigma Oasis holds the last piece

Sigma Oasis, adrift on a breeze
A waterlogged train, traversing the seas
Sigma Oasis alone on a beach
Protecting a castle the tides never reached

Am I protecting or breaking an oath
For Sigma Oasis, it's neither and both
You're finally weightless, so take to the air
Sigma oasis, you're already there
You're already there (Repeat)
