Lyrics

Amen

Written By: Tim Tucker

the mirror in your mental eye
reflects the fears that made you cry
and i said "you" and you said "i...
...i know the who but not the why"
and i should crawl and you should fly
the cloudy sky you occupy
and maybe we will unify
a day or so before we die
sha-la-la la-la-la
amen

the city sees a tragedy
with sorrow and sin as it's scenery
it's improvising symphony
a cold and coarse cacophony
and i in my soliloquy
confusing rhyme with poetry
attempt to force the fantasy
that leads you here, right here to me
sha-la-la la-la-la
amen

the hero of our fairy tale
is drowning in the wishing well
and hopelessness, like evening, fell
and desperation does compel
my mind to scream and shout and yell
remember her skin's fragrant smell
and the color of her fingernails
her countenance in full detail
sha-la-la la-la-la
amen

so leave her with a final kiss
and say goodbye to all of this
to uncertainty i submiss
but i will often reminisce
of torment and of total bliss
of passion and of pettiness
and those tomorrows we dismiss
is something i'll forever miss
sha-la-la la-la-la
amen

i walked into your house of prayer
revealed the need that brought me there
the last supper had been prepared
i took the only vacant chair
i dropped a piece of silverware
and kneeling on the floor bare
i saw the son of man in solitaire
asking could his life be spared
sha-la-la la-la-la
amen
