    The meaning has clearly been misunderstood
    A mystical treasure with power that could
    Grant the bearer with life ever after
    Drink from the spring, tricking the hereafter

    The treasure, the fountain was never a throne
    It was never a structure build from gray stone
    There was never a map that showed the way
    Or a chart found in an ancestor grave

    The fountain of youth is what stands before US
    The fountain of youth is what is around US
    The secret to our life ever after
    Are the children we are the protectors

    The fountain of youth is the future to come
    The ones who are born and the ones yet to come
    The mystical treasure that those once did seek
    Are the children who stand at our feet

    They are the treasure that the ancients spoke of
    It comes from the womb, from the treasure of love
    So you see it is not a mystery
    The fountain of youth; our children, our seed

    yes indeed the fountain is thy child
    each sprinkle of life is gold
    the only mystery is the misunderstanding of youth
    awesome piece of truth and reality check up
