THE QUESTION

THE “QUESTION” THEN IS STILL THE “QUESTION” NOW … In my humble opinion these are some of the most beautiful lyrics ever written and are full of wisdom and understanding … Still today these words scream with a wild voice about the condition of the human heart … we must look within … Frank Payton …Below are lyrics to “THE QUESTION” …BY THE MOODY BLUES … ABSORB THEM …

Why do we never get an answer When we’re knocking at the door? … With a thousand million questions … About hate and death and war?

’cause when we stop and look around us … There is nothing that we need … In a world of persecution that is burning in its greed.

Why do we never get an answer … When were knocking at the door? … Because the truth is hard to swallow … That’s what the wall of love is for …

It’s not the way that you say it … When you do those things to me … It’s more the way that you mean it … When you tell me what will be

And when you stop and think about it … You won’t believe it’s true … That all the love you’ve been giving … Has all been meant for you …

I’m looking for someone to change my life … I’m looking for a miracle in my life … And if you could see what it’s done to me … To lose the love I knew … Could safely lead me through …

Between the silence of the mountains … And the crashing of the sea … There lies a land I once lived in … And she’s waiting there for me …

But in the grey of the morning … My mind becomes confused … Between the dead and the sleeping … And the road that I must choose …

I’m looking for someone to change my life … I’m looking for a miracle in my life … And if you could see … What it’s done to me … To lose the love I knew … Could safely lead me to … The land that I once knew … To learn as we grow old … The secrets of our souls …

Hats off to the Moody Blues … These words were written over fifty years ago … and still describe the desperately fallen status of mankind … Better than just reading the lyrics … Listen to the song … released in April 1970 …. IT’S BEAUTIFUL! … To me, life is all about a heightened sense of awareness and we must ask the question of why … ‘The Truth’ is hard to swallow”… As Jim Morrison said, we have become a desperate people in a desperate land … The end is near …yet it’s a new beginning …
