The One With Pearl-White Words

May 27, 2005

So come to us

With open hands

For you know how to fly.

Please, teach us to stand.

We know you are a freeman

And we are but slaves.

We have spent a lifetime of this,

To learn we are the fool that raves.

You, the naked wanderer,

The one with pearl-white words.

Take us in to follow you,

Relieve us of our swords.

The world itself came to you

When it was so young

And molded close around your spirit,

Its breath filled your lungs.

So come to us

With open hands

For you know how to fly.

Please, teach us to stand.
