Take Me Seeking

Play MP3
I was seeking out some God up in the temple of the sky
For I'd found myself a prayer I had to say
But I stumbled in the sod, whereas a flower caught my eye
And I forgot what I'd been seeking anyway. (Hey) 
     Take me seeking, take me finding, take me home    
     Could you lead me from this chasm, 
     Would you fold me to your bosom,
     Could you fix the cataclysm  
     Of being alone.
          Or am I on my own?

I was watching for a savior in the souls of other men
For I was not sure that I could do my part
And I noticed their behavior was much like mine again
And I seemed to be reflected everywhere. (Here and there)
     Take me seeking, take me finding, take me home.
     Oh is there some redeeming love, 
     One lightning-moment's gleam above
     To illuminate the meaning of 
     Being Alone,
          Or is that ever known?

I was searching out the spirit in the atoms of a tree
For it seemed to hold the secret to it all
And I had but come near it when it spoke these words to me (You see)
"A tree is born to be and then to fall."  (And that's all)
     Take me seeking, take me finding, take me home
     To the universal blending, 
     To the magic molten mending,
     To the final golden ending of 
     Being Alone,
          Or will that never come?

On my quest to find a brother in the shadows of the earth,
Where I'd found the tree and man and sky, okay,
Were the people of my mother and the secrets of my birth,
So they came one night and carried me away.  They
     Brought me seeking, took me finding, to my lost ancestral home,
     Just as I'd quit trying, had settled for the crying,
     And believed that I was dying  
     Of being Alone 
          They took me home.
