There falls the words of fools about my ears
to hasten by the years the journey that I make
through myself.

The travellers that pass by me as I wend my way
all reaching out to say their path can find the way
to the truth.

Answers everywhere, promising solutions to my fears
leading through halls with no doors in the walls
and leave me in the darkness.

But to close my ears to all will bar the way
for those who've travelled through.

The silence of a candle burning in my room
speaks softly of a peaceful balance to be found
just beyond.

The road within without a right or wrong
with lanes for only one where solely one must see,
and will know.

A stillness that resounds, singing sounds of hope to light my way
drawing me near to a path that is clear,
to free myself from darkness.

And the voice within the candle whispers of a timeless peace
that lies beyond.

And the voice within the candle whispers of a timeless peace
that lies beyond.


Paul Winter Consort - The Silence of a Candle

Yeah, there's a guy with a ticket to Mexico
No, he couldn't look much stranger
Walkin' in the hall with his things and all
Smilin, said he was the Lone Ranger

Waiting by the side of the road
For day to break so we could go
Down into Los Angeles
With dirty hands and worn out knees

I keep crawling back to you

This is getting old and so are you
Everything you know and never knew
Will run through your fingers just like sand
Enjoy it while you can
Like a snake between two stones
It itches in your bones

Take a deep breath and swallow

Your sorrow, tomorrow
So raise it up and let's propose a toast
To the thing that hurts you most
It's your last cup of sorrow
What can you say?

Send out the signals, deep and loud
And in this place can you reassure me
With a touch, a smile -
While the cradle's burning
All the while the world is turning to noise
Oh, the more that it's surrounding us
The more that it destroys
Turn up the signal - wipe out the noise!

God is patient
God is kind
He does not envy
He does not boast
His ways are higher than my own
His thoughts consume the great unknown
Of this alone I am sure
My God is love

Good morning Mister Blue, we've got our eyes on you.
The evidence is clear, that you've been scheming.
You like to steal away and while away the day.
You like to spend an hour dreaming.
What will it take, to whip you into line?
A broken heart?
A broken head?
It can be arranged.
It can be arranged.

Step softly Mister Blue, we know what's best for you.
We know where your precious dreams will take you.
You've got a slot to fill, and fill that slot you will.
You'll learn to love it, or we'll break you.
Oh, what will it take, to whip you into line?
A broken heart?
A broken head?
It can be arranged.
It can be arranged.

Be careful Mister Blue this phase you're going through,
Can lead you nowhere else, but to disaster.
Excuse us while we grin, you've worn our patience thin.
It's time to show you who's your master.
What will it take, to whip you into line?
A broken heart?
A broken head?
It can be arranged.
It can be arranged.

Don't worry Mister Blue, we'll take good care of you.
Just think of it as sense and not surrender.
But never think again, that you can think again,
Or you'll get something you'll remember.
What will it take to whip you into line?
A broken heart?
A broken head?
It can be arranged.
It can be arranged.

It burns, brothers, it burns!
Ah, our poor shtetl - Gd forbid! - burns!
Evil winds with their roar
Tugging, breaking and ruffling
The wild flames grow stronger
Everything is on fire!
And you stand and look around
With arms crossed
And you stand and look around-
Our shtetl is on fire!

It's burning! Brothers, it's on fire!
Ah, our poor shtetl - Gd forbid! - burns!
The tongues of fire already have it
The whole shtetl enveloped-
And the wicked winds rage-
Our shtetl is on fire!

And you stand and look around ...

It's burning! Brothers, it's on fire!
It can - God forbid! - the moment will come
That our city is with us
Turned to ashes by the flames.
Remaining - like after a battle,
Only bare black walls become!

And you stand and look around ...

It's burning! Brothers, it's on fire!
Help can only come through you!
If the shtetl is dear to you,
Get the buckets put out the fire
Erase with your own blood
Prove you can!

Don't stand around like that, brothers
With arms crossed
Don't stand, brothers, put out the fire
Our shtetl is on fire!

It's a good question to be asking right now
What'll you put up with, what'll you allow?

What is the color, the color of change?
What is the reason these times are so strange?

What is democracy?
What is the deal?
What would it look like?
How would it feel?

Putting your shoulder to the wheel
Keeping it turning until justice is real

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil? 
Do you think you can tell?
Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
 
Open your heart, I'm coming home

We shone like the sun
We shone like the sun
I was staring straight into the shining sun

Recognize every face
But I ain't got everything I need
If I'm just living in the space between
The beauty and the pain
It's the strangest thing
