When you listen
in the darkness for the voices from before,
Do you think you hear the echoes
from beyond the closing door?
When you read the stars and
planets, do they offer any guide?
Can you look into the world that’s
waiting on the other side?
In the moonlight men have labored
on paper and in stone.
Now the ravens haunt their chambers
and their secrets lie unknown.
There were gentle men who told us
that the truth would make us free;
Now the catacombs have led them to
a world we cannot see.
Do you think you hear them calling?
Do they tell you not to fear?
Do your pentagrams and candles make
it easier to hear?
There are questions we will ask in
vain til one of them returns,
But the most important answers are
the easiest to learn:
Every person is a lesson.
Every lesson is a blessing.
Every blessing is a message.
But the message leaves you guessing
at the truth.
