That There Is A Place In Eternity For You


Weary from work you pass a mountain lost in Greece,
finding a statue of love mounted over a golden fleece,
then will the words of green divine say you shall find too,
that there is a place in eternity for you.

Crossed a path through tombs of Eli in fidelity,
laying to rest on the other side under a willow tree,
some say they dream to release the power of mind,
but forget the dinosaurs that guard the blind.

This day heralds the time when trouble shall begin,
with the first mournful chorus of man's howling sin,
through inbred courage and strength drawn from the toes,
leap onto the holy trail by lead of your nose.

Then will the words of green divine say you shall find too,
that there is a place in eternity for you.

Tales do not end in farewells as lost hope begins,
sorrows are not drowned in gluts of proverbial gin,
near the Kingdom of Zeus and the domes of Saint Paul,
there is a land of hope for all.

So tread the endless path, the choking dust of track,
words of wisdom writ large tell you don't look back,
then will the words of green divine say you shall find too,
that there is a place in eternity for you.
