© 1988, Roy Stucky

Beneath demands of rigid creeds,
My search for Truth just made me bleed.
I lost my way in detail deeds
That preyed upon my deepest need.

I question quested past my sight,
I saw the height then ran in fright.
Before the task beneath the fears
I bowed my head to sorrow's tears.

We clutch at bread in a circus wind
But find nothing solid to blame
For the void those cheers echo within -
Mocking our Roman campaign.

Old thorns rise bearing roses -
Choking out the Life Who knows us
Weeping down on our disgust.
Look upon our faces!
Shorn of any trust.
Earth still spins but iron winds cut
Our flesh back down to dust.

We clutch at bread in a circus wind
But find nothing solid to blame
For the void those cheers echo within -
Mocking our Roman campaign.

We grow in isolation -
Love with sly manipulation
Twisting hearts to our decay.
Look upon our faces!
Labels lead astray.
We are made in God's own image
Our sin would grind away.

We clutch at bread in a circus wind
But find nothing solid to blame
For the void those cheers echo within -
Mocking our Roman campaign.

We cloak our souls in leisure -
Duely pleasured restive creatures
Love the lie that all is right.
Look upon our faces!
Some won't last the night.
We pretend this life's eternal
Then brag on our insight.

We clutch at bread in a circus wind
But find nothing solid to blame
For the void those cheers echo within -
Mocking our Roman campaign.

Our God's no dream of desperate poor,
The veil is torn from roof to floor.
Now who will let the Truth ignite
The darkness crying out for Light?

We clutch at bread in a circus wind
But find nothing solid to blame
For hearts like leaves that madly spin
On the storm that brings no rain.

Jesus! Lord from Heaven!
You took for us all pain.
Jesus! Lord of Heaven!
Only You could reclaim
Those born to the chain.
