Is There a God


Silently I awoke
Into a dream
Only to see
Destruction on t.v

-La Dolce Vita

A child whispers
The leaves have fallen
A man wonders
Why the trees are bare
Into the night
I still stare
Like a child
I feel his fear

Coming over me, surrounding me
It is all around me
Like darkness that overshadows a light
It brings upon visions that appear in my sight
They reappear, but disappear
And without warning
I see him there

Following orders, obeying the law
Misunderstanding, the truth of it all
(When the leaves will fall)
I whisper…

Is there a God
Watching over one tonight
Showing one the light
Is there a God

A mother will bare the pain of a child
And a child will seek comfort from a stranger
When a stranger is someone you know in danger

IS THERE A GOD?

(left speaker)
Upon my shirt I wear his stains
(right speaker)
I try to was them away
(left speaker)
But the blood remains
(right speaker)
Do you feel the same

IS THERE A GOD?

When faith becomes obscure
And hope is as painful as fear
Where love, love is a reflection
You see –in the mirror
Where no one seems to care
(Why the trees are still bare)
I wonder…

Is there a God
To take this pain away
To do what the bible did say
To pray upon today
Is there a God

Can you show me the way
Can you give me a sign
Like water turning to wine
Now is the time.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
