blind boy grunt

life becomes a trail of time,

of never-ending thought,

people they just said it all

but never really fought.

and everything, as mysteries

are finally revealed 

when one as strong as time itself

says nothing can be healed.


now fallen gods all ask about

the changing of the guard,

while someone keeps on telling them

it isn't very hard.

but no one ever listens to

a man before his time,

cause people are afraid of things

that suddenly change rhyme.


people, they have uttered "god"

upon his very track,

and then when changes came his way

they quickly turned their back.

no, not a god is he at all,

just a man with reasons strong,

on a long and tireless journey

with a never-ending song.
