Thinking About Eterenity

When I awoke I doubted you
Why could you do so much pain without a word
Isn't your silence your curse?! Curse YOU!!!
You ignoring every word, nothing heard, free as a bird

I hate you Lord~!~  I hate you God!
Your treat me like a DOG!
And then you beat me with the Rod
Make me ugly to the world like a Frog.

But I fear you, I can't run
My Faith makes me quiver
Makes me out in the cold with shivers
For you Lord are my Sun

Your brightness makes me smile
Your brightness makes the wind dissapear
You make me happy while after while
My Fear of you makes there nothing else to fear

Amen

Lyrics:

Sun's up, uh huh, looks okay
The world survives into another day
And I'm thinking about eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

I had another dream about lions at the door
They weren't half as frightening as they were before
But I'm thinking about eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

Walls windows trees, waves coming through
You be in me and I'll be in you
Together in eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

Up among the firs where it smells so sweet
Or down in the valley where the river used to be
I got my mind on eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

And I'm wondering where the lions are...
I'm wondering where the lions are...

Huge orange flying boat rises off a lake
Thousand-year-old petroglyphs doing a double take
Pointing a finger at eternity
I'm sitting in the middle of this ecstasy

Young men marching, helmets shining in the sun,
Polished as precise like the brain behind the gun
(Should be!) they got me thinking about eternity
Some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

And I'm wondering where the lions are...
I'm wondering where the lions are...

Freighters on the nod on the surface of the bay
One of these days we're going to sail away,
going to sail into eternity
some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

And I'm wondering where the lions are...
I'm wondering where the lions are...
