lyrics

THAT’S NO MOON…IT’S A SPACE STATION:
Where have my roots gone? They grow where they don’t know while insufficiently pondering the meaning of this line. There’s life, death, and that place somewhere in between, but these roots are not my home, and I’ve let them grow all wrong.
 And now I can’t feel the vine. I can’t! The cosmos shine like they’ve always been there, and we live as if we’ve always been this proud, as if humbleness never was.
 (Maybe I’ll be beautiful one day, but for now I’ll just stay out of the way.) The gift of the heavens was something else, it was not me. If love doesn’t last forever, then this is all meaningless. Oh God, it’s all in vain! … (silence) … I am king folly, and my heart is so heavy, but I’m not ready to walk across this thin ice of life. Juxtapose the new world and the grace we live in! And see how my heart used to long for escape, but I forgot just how I was made. Now it only longs to be renewed…

This is in my heart! This is in my chest !He has made everything beautiful in its time! He has set eternity in the human heart, yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end! In all this I said “I’m determined to be wise” but I realize it’s all beyond me.
