Roky Erickson – The Looking Glass Song lyrics

Though it's already known for manners
I ask you with my voice
We have the same good sensitivity
To thank God for presence we rejoice

Kind one, oh kind one
Oh where have you been
Once around the world
Then back again

Kind one, oh kind one
Oh where have you been
Twice around the world
Then back again

What are you thinking
If I may quiz
Just thanking God for one certain definition
Of the use of relative

The looking glass, the looking glass
Why is it round
Just what I've seen
Some of the good that I've found

Existing and living (being) being twice
We are, but we are living
Which surely makes it nice

Look into the looking glass
I can tell you what you should see
A beautiful person worth saving
For God, Jesus Christ and all humanity
