Long ago, a tall man told a tale of yesterday
Finding pleasure from this house his ears, they did obey

He found a new meaning
His life was redeemed
Words of peace will fill his mind and change his way of life
Meeting wise old women on the cliffs of life itself

In a new way of living
But remember the giving
Prophesy within your mind and you will work it out
Then you'll never worry as sometimes you used to do
