The Sage's Lament
words and music Stephen Barling

never mind what you're missin'
and you won't get burned
you've learned
that just kissin' is a way to turn on
never left to righteous indignation please
don't neglect to patch your holy knees

I am God
God and Mammon

In our minds
we are bidden by the oldest wind again
inner vision of our only friend
all's not lost but still
forgotten's left to stay
in derision of our oldest day

I find God
God and Mammon

save your wailin' for the blue glow
somebody calls the crack a dawn
leave your madness by the window
this shit be got we carry on
this shit be got we doing something
this shit be got we doing something yea
