There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

PANTHEISTIC GOSPEL HOEDOWN

Thank you all for coming, thank you for your time
Refreshments in the back, it’s a very short line
Get yourself settled, I got a tale to tell
Let me weave you a story, let me cast a spell:

Long, long ago in the mists of time
A mystery unfolding full of reason and rhyme
Out of the ashes, sprung from the rocks
Came life from out of nothing, came time to the clocks
Time to the clocks and days to the week
It's a well known secret of which I speak:

We are of the planet
Our mom is the earth
We were not put down here
It was a natural birth
A natural birth
For the children of life
Floating in the heavens
Floating in the heavens
Floating in the heavens
Pretty neat trick!
Floating in the heavens
We are the day and the night

Some folks want to move you around
They know everything that cannot be found
The secrets of the universe for all to hear
Served with a portion of guilt and fear

I’m hear to say we're the moon and the sun
We are the laughter, we are the one
The gods all come and go with ease
We are the life and the wind in the trees

Long, long ago in the mists of time
A mystery unfolding full of reason and rhyme
Out of the ashes, sprung from the rocks
Came life from out of nothing, came time to the clocks
Time to the clocks and days to the week
It's a well known secret of which I speak:

We are of the planet
Our mom is the earth
We were not put down here
It was a natural birth
A natural birth
For the children of life
Floating in the heavens
Floating in the heavens
Floating in the heavens
Pretty neat trick!
Floating in the heavens
We are the day and the night

Thank you all for coming, thank you for your time
Refreshments in the back, it’s a very short line

Long, long ago in the mists of time

Floating in the heavens
We are the day and the night

(softly)
I’m hear to say we're the moon and the sun
We are the laughter, we are the one
The gods all come and go with ease
We are the life and the wind in the trees
