"And so I see how I am not alone"


Here we have no continuing city
Here we are wandering and homeless souls
We may not seem it while sitting pretty
But out on the street and hitting potholes
Then is when we feel it then when we know
As actors who are at our best in tragic roles

The dog came to me and offered his bone
And so I see how I am not alone

Here I get depressed and disappointed
Here I know what but cannot see how
Feeling disconnected and disjointed
Needing to reconnect now with always
As if it were forever even though
I know my always is only my now

The girl came to me and offered her kiss
And I have known nothing better than this

Here we build walls to keep each other out
Here we use fear to keep each other in
It seems to me the purest faith is doubt
And I have faith in my doubt about sin
But guess sin would be whatever hurts me
Whatever hurts you would be sin then too

And so I see how I am not alone
And I have known nothing better than this

We will have to stop hurting ourselves to be
Worthy of ourselves and being seen to see
Then seeing out from in see our way to begin
And being and seeing and freeing our souls
As actors who are at our best in tragic roles
When the dog and the girl and I will all be free
