The writings on the wall brother
Your life is in your hands
Its up to you to see the writings on the wall.

It looks you in the eye mister
Its time we stand up tall
Go see and understand the writings on the wall.

Strange we hold on to things that have no grace
Or power
While death holds on to us much more with every
Passing hour
And all the time you thought it would last
Your life, your friends would always be
til theyre drunk away or shot away or die away
From you.

Theres nothing that you need sister
The lord is in you all
Life is designed to see the writings on the wall.

The musics in the air mothers
You may have heard it call
To you that you may see the writings on the wall.

Be careful going home sister
Be watchful down that road
Youve got a lot of love sister
More to grow.

The writings on the wall brothers
Your life is in your hands
Its up to you to see the writings on the wall
I hope that you may see the writings on the wall.
