Reaching God

I want to reach God
Could I reach with pray
Could I reach with people
Or will I only grasp an empty void

I want to reach God
Should I hang on my hope
Should I hang on my work
Or will I put my soul into sacrifice

I want to reach God
It seems the words become ashes
It seems the world becomes dust
And I turn to another hypocrite man

I want to reach God
Maybe I'll never really catch even a feather of wing
Maybe I'll never really get the meaning
But my heart always looking for something more

I want to reach God
My body maybe sated by the joy of earth
My mind maybe conquered by the pleasure of power
But inside nothing else could fill this hunger
