Wise Man
The words he speaks are right
He’s seen it all before
He’s lived in the dark and the light
Bitten the apple and tasted the rotten core
He tells you not to take a bite
But you're greedy and want more
Maybe it’s just a human flaw
Wise Man
Take a look at those hands
Those scars were earnt
One day you might understand
Should listen to what he’s learnt
Already walked the land
Play with the fire and you'll get burnt
Thats what he says
Wise Man
Look at those tired eyes
They've seen so much
Seen the blue clear skies
You think he’s old and out of touch
That’s just the Wise Man disguise
He can’t see the future as such
No need when you've lived the past
The old man’s knowledge is unsurpassed
Haven’t you realised yet, only the wise last.
