A Turning World

1970's ?

The world is turning faster than you know
Makes us restless
Grabbing at the sky
And the clouds run even faster than we
Crying for us
Sheltering us
Humbling us in their anger.

Beating the truth out of ourselves
Challenging our own sanity
Putting ourselves on trial
Getting to the core
Getting to the core

Those who would help
Struck dumb and deaf
While those who cry keep asking why
But shedding anything of old
Find your lover
Find your lover

Lay yourself down
Prove yourself
Appease your needs
Take your spoils
Til the door is opened
Or til the door is shut.
