I’ve been searching, always searching for a long, long time
As the years be moving on, and my hair is turning grey
As I’m almost on the countdown for my day of truth to come
I’ve been searching, always searching since the day I first begun.
I sought a man of wisdom
And I asked him where it’s at.
He said “my man it’s simple
But you won’t find it like that.
You have seen too many answers
In those many books you’ve read
Yet the truth be live and breathing
As the words be old and dead.”
“You must move into your closet and you must close that door
And let the silence fill you, let it seep into your core.
You must leave the crowd behind you let it go with all it’s din
Then the truth in all it’s beauty may fill you deep within“.
