We are building
our own little place of wisdom
and let ourselves be guided
by the Old Ones along the way
Who are the Old Ones, you might ask
We just know
that they are here
And no one has
the right to say
we ourselves will be, some day,
the Wise Ones
we already carry the wisdom
we need along the way
It is our task to provide the path
for the Old Ones to walk among us
It may be slow but it will see
the light of day
of our right to say
That all this time,
we ourselves were the path
The Old Ones found their way

A vision transformed into music.
