lyrics

Father who held me in the palm of your hand
You breathed the world in mine Tought me how to find honesty intrepidly
Father who gave me all you had to give & wished the wish that made me live
Who fought yourself for me fought yourself to be there for me
Father who etched this human heart with love and care
Your final lesson left to bare spills into my everywhere
But time it plays it's fickle games and shouts its many colored names
Father you clothed youself with truth as a man
Your fairness equaled sacrifice nothing less would dare suffice
Our creed became I can we felled the shadow's stand
(chorus)
I'm a fool to think that I know
Center stage now on with the show
Vain attempt to open my eyes
Connect the dots the ties
Opaque pictures can't be shown
Inner scriptures turn to stone
Your face is carved into the rocks
As dreams paint their paradox
This rain cascading from my pores
Your strength grounds my core
It's all become so saturnine
Your recall awakes my mind
Time to embrace the fettered sound
Release it to higher ground
This bond that's reveling inside
This bond that blows with every breeze
Says with the changing of the tide
This is my life to seize
Child of mine Have I told you
I love you
Father of mine Have I told you
I miss you
I'm a fool to think that I know
Center stage now on with the show
Opaque pictures can"t be shown
Inner scripture turns to stone
