could it be?
the foundation of rock firmly laid on land
were actually pillars and pillars of sand?
for i am a lesser man,
i cannot do what my Lord can.
and now that i am down to my last,
i see olive branches are hard to extend.
we will all have to go where we must;
so now, the last die has been cast.
all things go from dust to dust;
will we last, or will we rust?
what a pun.

learn to say the same things;
let us hold fast to saying the same things.
‘i hope all is well with you!’
‘i wish the best for you!’
‘even if no one is around we’re always with you.’
sometimes in our nights we’d say things
that we really did mean;
yet when morning comes,
things don’t turn out the way we dreamed.
come on, say the same things!
let’s just keep on saying those same things!
‘remember the things that we’d do?’
‘all of the silly things in our youths!’
no one is around, who am i talking to?
i’m just a clown; are you amused?

well alright, my dear friend.
there is no need to play pretend.
If you want, you can sleep in the sand;
you were never the kind to withstand.
be that as it may
i was always the kind to say:
your garb is bound to rend,
and your will be found to bend.
was that truly a loving hand?
or an invitation to never-Neverland?
alas, i bid you no dismay;
and i will gladly accompany you on your way.
