Take My Hand, Walk With Me

And you shall know the truth

Incomprehensible Concepts

Incomprehensible concepts

Develop for the docile mind

Ask questions, seek answers

Knock over ancient beliefs

To see what you can find

Popular men of enduring fame

They’re call God’s chosen

Saints/ Prophets/ Messengers/ God incarnate


We line them up to our like or dislike

And to them we pledge our


We must take from them their concepts of God

Living according to their truths

As they see it

Or be threatened with damnation

Living in fear of hellish whips

Because of the way another may see it

A loving God who tortures His worshiper

Is a contradiction to me?

A Merciful God who shows no mercy

Is a curiosity to see?

There must be more to the message sent

To make sense of these

Incomprehensible concepts

To the Beat

Ignorance is bliss 

Let us dance in the night

Beneath a moonless sky

Blind to the world

Near the edge of the pit

Let the music rage

Fill our hearts and souls

As we dance violently

Near the edge of the pit

Echoes call out to us

“Watch your step, watch your step”

Disembodied voices saying nothing worth while

As we dance in time near the edge of the pit

What joy it is to be free

Twirling, twirling in the darkened sky

Free of the cares of the world

Slipping unnoticed into the pit of oblivion
