The Library

lyrics

Many paths all leading to the same place
Sacred books, a guide to saving grace
Hundreds of years displayed through pages of text
Each word painstakingly scribed from one to the next

Wandered down the halls feeling the history
Marbled walls and frescoes on the ceilings
Rooms and rooms of knowledge, stories told
The beauty in the construction, reverence of old

So much here to find and learn, can we listen?
What connects us separates us for no reason

If we wanted to make real change
We’d remember what makes us the same
Read the wisdom that’s there and is plain
So much knowledge to gain
Open our minds – step inside

We have all we need to know
So why do we push so hard to show
That only we know which way to go?

There is so much pain – so much war in this world
There is so much fear – so much hate in our souls
We will dominate only when we go to the source
Lives inside of every one of us under every stone
Under every stone
