"I've seen thirty thousand suns arise,
And as many people running for the elusive prize.
I wish you could see through my eyes
All the lessons I would tell.
But you're gonna make your own mistakes
Though I know that road too well.

Give yourself,
But beware to whom.
Solitude is Hell's first room.
But union with a catacomb
Is even worse than life alone.

Children,
Please listen.
Though you've heard it all before.
It's a trap to join yourself
To a cause of fable and lore.

I and my friends now dead thought
Our science was much more.
But we followed the master slave
Who said Jesus was a bore,
That if we'd just end the war
It would set us free.

Guess where that led me.

Give yourself,
But beware to whom.
Solitude is Hell's first room.
But union with a catacomb
Is even worse than life alone.

Jesus warns of the broad avenue
Though you think your goal's in sight.
It demands a fatal toll
Though the road at the start seemed right.

The war was not without,
Not with flesh and bone.
It was against the doubt
God still held His throne.

Its said the old are out of touch.
That we turn to God at our live's end
When the pain gets too much.
But the truth is that it took this long
For us to hear the infant song
And realize where we went wrong
Was in thinking our strength enough.
Was in thinking we knew so damn much.

Give yourself,
But beware to whom.
Solitude is Hell's first room.
But union with a catacomb
Is even worse than life alone.

Jesus warns of the broad avenue
Though you think your goal's in sight.
It demands a fatal toll
Though the road at the start seemed right.

But it leads down to Hell's pit through
Foolish trust in human might -
Thinking you can save your soul
Like some spirit hermaphrodite.

I wish all you children
Would stop for a moment
And truly listen
To a man who learned far too late,
Only once he stood at the gate
Of leaving you behind
To see where he was blind.

I wish all you children
Would stop.
And truly listen."
