Story Behind the Song

from the album, Ready to Grow, recorded in New York NY, 2009.

Lyrics

Show me a way, show me a way, show me a way to escape this place (2x)

where we touch like silk
but we drown in greed,

speak love like milk
as we kill to succeed

hear the truth of a new day
but lie through our teeth,

stalk the stars of the milky way
but toil far beneath

where every deed is a cry for the nearness of a God
Whom we long to set us free and break this facade
Whom we long to know and fear to understand
as He lays down our foundations and tears up our lands

And yet we are, furious so we must work, furiously
and our search is, ceaseless so we must search, ceaselessly
to obtain th eternal sunshine of a spotless mind
and as you seek sister, so shall ye find
the flowers in the garden of the hearts of men
where knowledge is its light and ignorance its den

(Chorus 2x) Cuz through the fire and the trials humankind will always cope
birthing babies in the ocean we will never give up hope
rise above the ash so we can see the truth above,
bask in the light and sing the song of love!
The song of love, the song of love, the song of love that goes like....

And like His onion
may my layers be peeled back to reveal a more potent truth
As His trumpet
may I call aloud the sound of a new day in the Fountain of Youth
As His reflection,
may my light shine upon all men
As His scribe,
may my actions exalt His Holy Pen

Raise the banner and the standard
swift as a thief in the night

Call aloud THE TIME HAS COME!
to set our souls' paths aright

our blood and bones a mere protection
our blood and bones a mere protection
for the manifestation of God's affection
the eternal light that lives inside
it burns and boils to come alive

(Chorus 2x)
