And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that [sheep], than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. (KJB Matthew 18:13)


He Who Never Have Gone Astray

What does he know of love and pain
The sheep that never have gone astray
He, who never crossed the borders
Beyond the duties of the day

He, who knows no other life
Than that of working nine to five
He, who never dared to dream
And in the unsung ocean dive

I will break the seals of Eden
I will wade in the river divine
I will walk the streets of diamonds
Where the lights of freedom shine

You may think that I'm a madman
A dreamer or in fact insane
You may rather see me suffer
And my life going down the drain

But it's you, who are the looney
You, who never raise your eyes
Above the daily toils and troubles
And your sham of lifelong lies
