In The Distance

dance the song of joy
believe in he who leads
live a life of love
beware the man of deeds

and in the distance
I can hear a trumpet blowing
and the sound of thunder
warns me of the end

so I swing the way of many
drink the cup of dreams
laugh at the truth
believe life is what it seems

for in the distance
I can feel the rumbling of my fear
and the echo never ends
it just says the same old thing
again and again

life is short, my friend

    I’d like to put a little distance between me and this song. I don’t really care for it much. Of course, I wrote it so I’m stuck with it. What was I thinking?
