Signs © 2005 W. Carroll

lyrics

Sometimes random walks in open clearings
Sometimes reflecting on my Brownian life
Bumping into nascent possibilities
Sometimes searching for another path

Maybe everything has hidden meanings

Patterns give themselves up before us
Insight laid out before our casual eyes
Connection: warp and weave of human being
Looking together for the meaning in signs

Everyone wants to see a hidden meaning
Everyone, everyone, everyone, everyone

So here we stand, hand in hand
We're watching for the signs
So here we stand; hold up your hands
We're waiting for the signs

We hope that we are more than automatic humans
More than bloody, bony, brainy beasts
We hunger together for inspired purpose
Look up, look in, bow down and share this feast

Everyone just wants to have a sense of meaning
Everyone, everyone, everyone, everyone

So here we stand, hand in hand
We're watching for the signs
So here we stand; hold up your hands
We're waiting for the signs

Here where the hero stands alone
Constant in trust of what he knows
Even here we band against the unknown
And conjure a parent-king in the sky, watching from his throne

So here we stand, hand in hand
We're watching for the signs
So here we stand; holding up our hands
We're waiting for the signs
So here we stand, hand in hand
We're watching for the signs

Here I stand, with head in hands, as you look up for the signs
