Galileo

Approaching_Storm.jpg

galileo’s head was on the block
the crime was looking up for truth
and as the bombshells of my daily fears explode
i try to trace them to my youth

and then you had to bring up reincarnation

over a couple of beers the other night
and now i’m serving time for mistakes
made by another in another lifetime

CHORUS:
how long till my soul gets it right
can any human being ever reach that kind of light
i call on the resting soul of galileo
king of night vision, king of insight

and then i think about my fear of motion
which i never could explain
some other fool across the ocean years ago
must have crashed his little airplane

CHORUS

i’m not making a joke, you know me
i take everything so seriously

if we wait for the time till all souls get it right
then at least i know there’ll be no nuclear annihilation
in my lifetime i’m still not right

i offer thanks to those before me
that’s all i’ve got to say
’cause maybe you squandered big bucks in your lifetime
now i have to pay
but then again it feels like some sort of inspiration

to let the next life off the hook
but she’ll say “look what i had to overcome from my last life
i think i’ll write a book”

CHORUS
