I’ve Seen

 
054
I’ve seen the heavens close their doors,
I’ve watched in silence as greed took more,
I’ve turned away from life somehow,
No longer caring for the now.
 
In this silent vacuum I found,
An alien of sorts making funny sounds,
He sits so pompously,
I almost forgot he was me.
 
I’ve seen the heavens close their doors,
I’ve watched in silence as greed took more,
I’ve turned away from life somehow,
No longer caring for the now.
 
Then there was a rush of wind,
Nothing like it before or then,
It came from a voice that I heard,
Behind a pulpit perching the word.
 
I’ve seen the heavens close their doors,
I’ve watched in silence as greed took more,
I’ve turned away from life somehow,
No longer caring for the now.
 
I sat and listened all day long,
To the man and his songs,
He did not preach the word of God,
Only wanted my money that is odd,
 
I’ve seen the heavens close their doors,
I’ve watched in silence as greed took more,
I’ve turned away from life somehow,
No longer caring for the now.
 
So a wrote the preacher a little note,
I placed it in the basket and put on my coat,
It said I’ll give you some tomorrow,
You make feel so full of sorrow.
 
I’ve seen the heavens close their doors,
I’ve watched in silence as greed took more,
I’ve turned away from life today,
No longer caring in bed I’ll stay.
