Inspiration's Garden
Go to work, young man...
Have you seen the latest craze through the haze?
A life of mirth and tan,
but just an actor on a stage in a play
Life is false it's said - and you know that's true
With what we're taught and fed, we can only lose

As a child of six, I remember hearing tales of hell
Of damnations fix that the preachers tried to sell - oh so well
and out on the streets, where the children play
It would soon, to them, become plain as day
- innocence betrayed

Betrayed by each one's selfish pride, we all will come to choose -
To turn the other cheek or hide within illusion's ruse?

So to each in turn, when a mother holds a child's tiny hands
We must show the way to give hope and then to finally understand
- that no path in life will ever be enough;
We must seek the spring the Spring of Eternal Love

Inspiration's Garden is there for all to find.
There behind your deepest hopes,
There beyond the mind

Inspiration's Garden is there for all to find
There behind your deepest hopes,
There beyond the mind

Inspiration's Garden is there for all to seek
Awaiting on your deepest dreams,
to bring you love and peace

Inspiration's Garden is there for all mankind
It's presence ever beckoning
A promise for all time

Inspiration's Garden is there for all to find.

God, being in everyone and everything - and being infinitley patient awaits for us to come to the realization that, to quote myself "We must seek the Spring of Eternal Love"
Story Behind the Song:
I was home alone... Sounds like a movie. Anyway, My family was away on vacation and I had some very productive minutes at the keyboard. The lyrics came almost immediatley, which for me is a miracle... Lyrics are always a struggle.
