Peter Koppes – A Drink From The Cup lyrics

I drank from the cup
Now I can't live without it
A playful young pup
Now an old dog with a new trick

A potion that makes all appear as if new
And all that was hidden comes into view

I drank from the cup
Knowing the danger of too much
When I woke up
The feeling had gone out of my touch

I peered into space, an immaculate hue
I ventured to taste it's impossible blue
The things I imagined turned out to be real
There weren't any secrets, I'd broken the seal

I drank from a lake
I wonder if l'll ever get back
I think a mistake
Till reason takes up all of the slack

A banquet appeared and invited to dine
On eternal bread and knowledgeable wine
My host gave a glimpse of what was to be
And I gave a toast then began to bleed
A vision ecstatic but all too brief
Left me mopping tears with an old handkerchief
