the grand inquisitor i: karamazov baseness lyrics – ocean

even if i did not believe in life,
if i lost my faith in the order of things,
were convinced, in fact, that everything is a disorderly, d*mnable, and devil-ridden chaos;
if i were struck by every horror of man’s disillusionment,
still i would want to live,
and, having once tasted the cup,
i would not turn away from it
until i had drained it.
you are trying to save me.
you are trying to save me —
but, perhaps, i am not lost.

if i were struck by every horror of man’s disillusionment,
still i would want to live,
and, having once tasted the cup,
i would not turn away from it.

is an unworthy, uncaring father still ent*tled to the love and respect of his sons?

you are trying to save me —
but, perhaps, i am not lost.
you are trying to save me —
but, perhaps, i am not
lost.
