In His Hands

 

the-rise-of-human-consciousness.jpg

You are wider than the skies

and my soul is in your hand

You are larger than the oceans

and my soul is in your hand

You are taller than the mountains

and my soul is in your hand

Where do I go from your presence

Out of you

there’s no land

 

The top’s spinning, spinning

Rewind, the beginning

I’m poor, and lost and hurt

by nature I’m sinning

You said you made me good

You said I was ok

But sorry it was my bad,

Now, there’s no winning

You said you love me so

You said I should obey

When I try and hear you right

You’re full of dismay

You say I shouldn’t try

Is it time for me to go?

You said you’re all-powerful

though somehow 

it’s always my mistake

you said I’m in control

and that so much’s at stake

yet the hurricane is roaring

without a break 

without a break 

You shouted;

“If you open your eye 

you die!

If you open your eye

you die!”

so I did!!!

Now I’m wide awake

I see the truth before me

There was never water

to the thirsty

no escape

from the reality you make

Reality’s unbearable

It was all a game

Hopelessness will kill me

A loveless life

will do the same

… and now that I opened my eye

I shall die

I shall die

but you said it’s not finished

you make the rules

and play by them…

Behold, I still have a choice

whether to forget what I saw

close my eye and dream

live in the illusion

of the unknown scheme

hope and sing and praise

in each given theme

or to stay awake 

and die

Raise your sceptre 

Oh Mordechai! 

The top’s spinning, spinning

Rewind, the beginning

I’m poor, and lost and hurt

by nature I’m sinning

You said you made me good

you said I was ok

but sorry it was my bad,

Now, there’s no winning…
