Things We Can See and Things We Cannot
by so long forgotten

       
Lyrics:

The sun sets pink, yellow, glorious, shined on that city always reverent on its hill. But either we are too close or too great a distance, to see its foundations giving way, its plants full of decay. But I could see, I could see, I could surely see that crippled man every morning hungry, drunk, and homeless on my street. And I could hear, I could hear, I could surely hear a thousand thirsty people calling (but I will never be that crutch or that drink). But if we rape and pillage the earth, take it for all that itís worth, and ring religionís salvation bellÖthe sick and imprisoned will find liberation in robes and wine, and a hell far worse than the one where they dwell! And I think I burnt my hands giving out fire, calling it a lamb. I gave armies swords to kill, an empire to build. And that solid crown, that mighty tower, I pray that it falls down, and it crushes me like a mustard seed, and spreads me outÖa field white for harvest. *And I smell the stench of a million men headed in my direction. And I hear the sound of their boots on the ground; letís plow the field with their weapons. Or just leave, letís scale those walls, and just leave. Weíll just leave. But who holds and cradles the earth, and gives every bit of itís worth? Who raises us along with the dead? The sick and imprisoned will find menís systems wonít keep them, and they will have liberation in the end!
