Most of Us Don’t Understand at All

29 04 2008

To walk a world that’s full of wonder
Spoil the catch and see the hunter
Talk of tales of exploitation
I think I want an explanation
Further to the situation
Most of Us Don’t Understand At All

That human life is rent asunder
Loves defiled and dies in thunder
We are born with acclamation
Live to learn intimidation
Swell to proud exaggeration
Then we die in isolation
Most of Us Don’t Understand At All

Time is as we can conceive it
None of us have yet perceived it
Winds just pass in open ocean
Clouds can merge in constant motion
We are clouds in loves emotion
Rise to heights of joyous notion

Clouds create the universe of love
Clouds create the universe of love
Clouds create the universe of love

I wrote this song after spending 5 days digging people out of an 8.1 earthquake in Italy, in 1980.
