Treasure Island

Never As Is


I hear whisperin' voices
There are many others in here
The prophet said do not believe
The Dark Muse said these are the words
The lover said yes please like that
The Other One said come this way

All these voices comin' at once
Something is written on the wall:

Love is a many splintered thing
Pain is a many splendored thing
You went about lovin' them all
You should have tried to love yourself
You see I am you you are me
She was everything you had hoped

There it is again, the writing
SI SA REVEN: just makes no sense:

Did you want for her what she did
Or that which you wanted for her
Are you as is or as you were
Or as is or as you will be
Never is ever as it is
Nothin' is never as it was

The voices come in unison
Now I understand the writing:

Never say never say never
Here is the trouble with never
It can be a really long time
You've used never with no regrets
She told you never and it is
And you will never be as is

Never as is, never as is
