lyrics

Was it Grace that taught
that man to see?
Or, would he have caught on,
on his own?

Now, I have known things,
I have gone ways,
I have all these dreams,
Of the Old Days.

So, be still my child;
don’t you cry anymore,
There are words
for the pools in your eyes.

Now, it’s surprising,
How we hold on,
But, my mind clings,
To these nouns.

And it tears my expectations.
But, I don’t fear what our next phase is.

But, it’s not ominous,
it’s not sad,
It’s not just bad luck
that you’re leaving.
Don’t you know all of us
have already had
Our hard times with decisions.

But, son, there’s no staircase,
no single straight road
That’s made out of gold,
no highway that’s hidden,
There is no clear path
of which I’ve been told, son,
That leads us to heaven.
