Why's it never light on my lawn
Why does it rain and never say good-day to the new-born
On the big screen, they showed us a sun
But not as bright in life as the real one
It's never quite the same as the real one

Tell me grey seal
How does it feel
To be so wise
To see through eyes
That only see what's real
Tell me grey seal

I never learned why meteors were formed
I only farmed in schools that were so warn and torn
I was re-born before all life could die
I read books and draw life from the eye
All my life is drawings from the eye

Tell me grey seal
How does it feel
To be so wise
To see through eyes
That only see what's real
Tell me grey seal

Your mission bells were wrought by ancient men
The roots were formed by twisted roots, your roots were twisted then
If anyone can cry then so can I
The Phoenix bird will leave this world to fly
If the Phoenix bird can fly then so can I

Tell me grey seal
How does it feel
To be so wise
To see through eyes
That only see what's real
Tell me grey seal

Tell me grey seal
How does it feel
Tell me grey seal
How does it feel
