lyrics

THE UNSEEN WORLD

Can you stand before another and know what he sees
Or shake him by the hand and know that he agrees
If I asked you how, would you find it easy to explain?

Across a crowded room, under an empty sky
Beyond belief and trust or any how or why
What do your senses tell you,
do your senses lie now and again

The Unseen World
It's just the way it is when something unexpected happens
You lie there curled up, unsure and shivering,
wishing someone'd pick you up and take you by the hand
To help you understand

We're less the product of the things we know for sure
than of the questions posed that still go unanswered
All of the mysteries we scramble for the perfect word to hide

All secrets can be told, all stars are distant suns
All faces are the same, all limbs are phantom ones
All truth acquires its meaning
with a shaft of doubt thrust in its side

The Unseen World
The very mention of it proves its out there somewhere
The very words, why would we have them if there wasn't
something there to talk about
To figure out

What's this all about me?

Do you shut your eyes and wish for what you think you should
Do you believe in luck, can it be bad or good
Do you believe in fate, do you think that could just be a crutch?

And would a word of prayer escaping past your lips
feel like a stranger's skin against your fingertips?
Trembling, unfamiliar, warm and sticky,
rough and yielding to the touch.

The Unseen World
How sharper than a child's first tooth is that to cling to
The Unseen World
A mist of half-remembered dreams that one could almost bring to be at last
And hold them fast

1997
