FOREVER

Earth is like a church without a preacher The people have to pray for themselves Animals and birds cannot help them Trees and plants have nothing new to say Planets are just bumbles, floating carelessly Streets lined up with boxes, so it seems Lined up there forever by their buildings Standing in the way of children's dreams So I made my way down this highway Stopping now to rest and then to eat Trying not to damage that that's in my way Lookin' for a way to be complete That's how it ends in the beginning That's how I plan to say goodbye Leavin' bells just as they were ringing I'm not trying to make something die My friend Al got the message Sent it down that street with the boxes on Lined up there forever, filled with thinkers Working on solutions here and gone I really want to make a difference Trying now to help him with the work Originating in the heart of something Worth keeping in the soul when it gets hurt As we keep on building roads of boxes To think inside of what we will With increasing distance from the foxes From the wolves and whip-poor-wills And from the crows And all the sea creatures Mermaids and the galleons of war Crossing over onto waves of fortunes To finally crash upon the shore Upon the shore Upon the shore On the shore On the shore On the shore Rescued there by primitive tribesman Living in round triangles forevermore Never ever in a straight line And always on the road to Heaven's door Will the clouds and the rains come in torrents And will the winds blow forever On the shore Over the dry land between the castles Or the herds of horses grazing on the clover Earth is like a church without a preacher Without a preacher Earth is like a church without a preacher Without a preacher Earth is like a church Earth is like a church Earth is like a church
