(trower / reid)

You'd better listen anybody, 'cos I'm gonna make it clear
That my life is unimportant; what I've done I did through fear
There's a river running through me: on it's tide I tried to hide
Nonetheless I could not shake it, and in the end it swept aside
All my feeble unimportance. I can't say it, never mind
Can't you hear me mother calling you? I'm cold, I'm deaf, I'm blind
And if only 'cos you're lucky, we both know that's no find
I did think I'd be an actor. what I am I'll leave behind

You'd better listen anybody, 'cos it's me and you --that's it
And in case you find your maker perhaps you'll plead for us a bit
All my sick is in my stomach, all my sweat is clearly fear
And if you could see inside me I don't think you'd have me here
Tell the helmsman veer to starboard, bring this ship around to port
And if the sea was not so salty I could sink instead of walk
And in case of passing strangers who are standing where I fell
Tell the truth: you never knew me, and in truth it's just as well

    I hope the truth of christ finds a place in his heart. Before the end brings to naught those proud boastful intellects that fell forthe ancient lies of the heart and the invisible influences that split humanity from the way. The truth and the life .
