Cross to Bear (Gibb Barry)

Something appears in my field of vision I close my eyes and I wonder why That life itself is just a biblical fiction Who do you believe in? How can I lose myself? And you go wandering for 40 days and 40 nights And you keep searching for the treasures of the Nile They are just memories of things that prophets used to say They cannot help you now, a million miles away Let's hit rewind Some cosmic get-together Just you and I We go beyond forever There is no time It's truly now or never No use pretending you don't care Everybody's got a worried mind Everybody's got a cross to bear Everybody's got an axe to grind Everybody's got to breathe the air I've seen Ghandi, Krishnamurti, Jesus and the King You quote the Son of Man while you destroy the Earth your mother You build your fortress in the sand You are the one who leads you You say you're starving while you bite the hand that feeds you Let's hit rewind Some cosmic get-together Just you and I We go beyond forever There is no time It's truly now or never No use pretending you don't care Everybody's got a worried mind Everybody's got a cross to bear Everybody's got an axe to grind Everybody's got to breathe the air Don't shout, I got mine It's all about me and I'm next in line Get a life, I'm not lazy Maybe thinking all the gods are crazy Been there, done that, out of my face Got to be a winner in the human race It's your lesson, know your place Let's hit rewind Some cosmic get-together Just you and I We go beyond forever There is no time It's truly now or never No use pretending you don't care Everybody's got a worried mind Everybody's got a cross to bear Everybody's got an axe to grind Everybody's got to breathe the air
