Track 5 of Preclusion I.

lyrics

THE RECRUIT: Good people,
Have you ever felt a pull in your head?
A nagging voice that’ll never quit?
What if I told you of a place that exists,
Made for you and all the crimes you’ll commit

Friends, I hail from that very place
A victor who sailed to prestige
I visit you now to share my winnings
Of which you all, too, have a token to seize

THE LAME: Yes, we hear your words
You’re someone like us
Yes, heal our wounds
And take us away!!!

THE RECRUIT: I am the path the ambitious all fight to walk
But I don’t hold a gun to your head
It won’t be easy but neither is the static
That Youth embraces within her rigid bed
I am the way, I am your lives
I am what you all wish to be
And I can promise you, no matter what you do
You’ll find your soul’s stake in Possibility

THE LAME: Yes, we hear your words
You’re someone like us
Yes, heal our wounds
And take us away!!!

THE RECRUIT: I can lead you from this waste
A limbo to which you feel you’re bound
Across the Sea of Chance we’ll sail
‘til we reach the Promise Ground

La dee da . . .
Hold your heads up high
Open up your weary eyes
Hold a steady poise
Long live the man who drowns his inner boy!!

THE LAME: La dee da . . .
