PACE THE CRATER

 

Pace the crater, measure the grave

Of an ancient traveler that wouldn't behave

Feel the pressure, shock of the wave

Sense the purpose of the life he gave

 

Span the moment of a life unatoned

Another cycle, another king dethroned

Curious fate for an ancient stone

For one more chapter, well, the end's postponed

 

 Say goodbye to the world that made you a slave

 And deny all your lies, and the promises made

 But hold on to the tokens of love that you gave

 As you pace the crater, and wait to be saved

 

Live the laughter and carry the tune

You were stricken by fire and fed by the spoon

Touch of the hand, taste of harpoon

Another scar on the face of the moon

 

 

Across the crater at the mouth of a cave

A stone was moved, a path was paved

Live impatience as we wait for the wave

The sky will open and we'll all be saved
