through a glass darkly lyrics – america gomorrah

eat, drink and be merry
for tomorrow we die
its each man’s right to be happy
so take your pick of the lies
you don’t need no one telling you
what’s right or wrong
there are no absolutes
just ask anyone

you don’t need anyone
look out for #1
no one cares about you
you care for no one
i guess you’re safe there
in isolation
complete independence
personal desolation

when i was a child
i spoke as a child
i thought like a child
i reasoned like the child i was
now i’m a man
i’ve done away with childish things
why can’t i understand
anymore than i did then?

now we see through a gl*ss darkly
like looking in a mirror
at a carnival side show
now we see through a gl*ss darkly
someday our father will reveal
all mysteries

for now we know in part
but then we will know all
we’ll know the lord, our god
even as we are known
all mysteries will be
revealed to us in time
hold steadfast to the course
keep your eyes on the prize

now we see through a gl*ss darkly
like looking in a mirror
at a carnival side show
now we see through a gl*ss darkly
someday our father will reveal
all mysteries

i have found the answer
the only truth there is
you’re gonna say it’s too easy
but it’s just waiting to give
its not about religion
its not about belief
forget about conviction
for many have bought into lies
there is but one command
the sum of all the rest
you must love the lord, your god
and your neighbor as yourself

love is all there is
love is all that matters
there is no mystery
love is the answer
