Blood From a Turnip
Don't look to me for answers -
For, questions are all I have.
I can't tell you how you should live your life -
Living my own is more than I can manage.
You want the secret of happiness?
Talk to a child, who still has his sense of wonder;
Who lives in blissful innocence of life's harsh realities,
And is full of the will to live.
You're looking for peace of mind?
Try consulting a priest -
They claim to have all the secrets of the universe
Tied up in a neat little package.
So, you seek truth?
Ask a philosopher -
But, don't be surprised if he advises you
To look for truth within yourself.
Ask a child...ask a priest...ask a philosopher...
But, please, don't ask me.
I can't give you what I don't have.
