Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

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

The One That is the All



a gospel most obscene
hides beneath the floor
it speaks of god as all
we must go through that door
the source is not beyond
nor separate from us
we cannot see beyond the veil
we are blinded by the dust

the child in the sun
the old man in the rain
the worker in the field
makes a sacrament of grain
what was lost in church
is adam's second fall
i touch the secret heart
the one that is the all

we are of the earth
we are of the sky
we are mysteries
always asking why
some of us are noble
some of us profane
we are everything
that's left beyond the pain

when the mood is right
when the day is done
conjure up the universe
and smile when you're done
feel it in your bones
feel it in your heart
we are in the garden
and were right from the start

the child in the sun
the old man in the rain
the worker in the field
makes a sacrament of grain
what was lost in church
is adam's second fall
i touch the secret heart
the one that is the all

we are of the earth
we are of the sky
we are mysteries
always asking why
some of us are noble
some of us profane
we are everything
that's left beyond the pain
