Wise Old Man

A wise old man from another age
Told me of passion, fear and rage
He gave advice, I lent my ear
In my head he seems so near

It all seems so long ago
To me his life he did bestow
Given this I must survive
To keep alive his soul mind

Wise old man
Where are you now
Wise old man
Don’t let me down
I know you’re here
Rise up from the sands
Come help me please
My dear old man

This wise old man has taught me well
Upon his wisdom I will dwell
I dropped my weapons — sheath and sword
To mend my Heart and heal the sores

I march forward — head up high
Outside a fortress, inside a sigh
I’ll see the world to its own end
Oh give me strength, I must defend…
