Question and Answer

April 8, 2009
What if we found ourselfs in the face of god
you stand and listen, would you nod and sob?
if you found a spare life on the side of the street
would you even think of giving it to me?

If we found ourselfs in the land of the lost
would you shout and try to be found
would you stand by me
or would you shout curses as you sunk down?

If we found ourselfs in the land of the blind
would you consider it a sin to see?
Would you make up for your lack of sight with constant apathy?

If we found ourselfs in the land of the loved
could you find it in your heart to hate?
If we tried to escape
would anything in your heart be delayed?

If this started to move slowly
would you wait for it to pick up?
Would you pick up your feet and sun
screaming into the sun?

because
this
is
question
and
answer


If we found ourselfs in the face of god
I would only laugh and nod
If I found a spare life on the side of the street
I would give it to no one, but set it free

If we found ourselfs in the land of the lost
I would not even try to pause:
I would stand by you as we fell down
I would curse nothing if we ran aground;

If we found ourself in the land of the blind
it would not be a sin to see
the greatest sin, however
would be constant apathy.

If we found ourself in the land of the loved
I could not find it in my heart to hate
I would not try to escape:
I do not know if anything in my heart could be delayed

If this started to move slowly
I would not pick it up
But I would not scream into the sun

because
i
love
you
that is the answer
