***
LEGEND GOES THERE IS A LIGHTHOUSE
STANDING BRAVELY ON A HILL
INSIDE AN ANCIENT STONE CIRCLE
OF PREHISTORIC SKILL.

RUMOR HAS IT ALL WHO SEEK THIS PLACE
ALREADY HOLD THE KEY
TO CLIMB INSIDE THAT SPIRAL
AND LIGHT THE LAMP OF PEACE.

DO YOU THINK IT’S HUMAN NATURE
DO YOU THINK WE’LL EVER FIND
PEACE OF MIND?
PEACE OF MIND?

WHEN THE WHITES OF OUR EYES
MEET THE WHITES OF THEIRS

IN THIS COMEDY OF ERRORS?

WHILE WE BOMB OUR WORLD TO HELL

ONLY FUTURE CAN TELL
