A Leap of Faith


Try to take a leap of faith
And think what that leap might bring.
The end to all man’s indifference
And all of the suffering.

Maybe faith is all we have left
For man has made a mess.
But the faith must come from all of us
Along with forgiveness.

For to believe that mankind’s fallen down
And cannot stand upright
Is a fatalistic attitude
That’s got us all uptight.

I still believe that the goodness of man
Outweighs the evil that’s here.
Usually it takes a big wake-up call
To take away all fear.

So try and take a leap of faith
And never let it be said
We sat by and watched hell happen
And now mankind is dead.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
