YET

Lyrics and music: Stan (Sawyer) Stewart

Circle is unwinding.
End of the rope. Finding
Knot is not tied as tightly as we thought.
Now, when the wheels grinding;
Here are the brakes binding.
Can we be sure to come out on the top?

I raise it skyward!
Ah! Won’t you help me?
I look beside me:
It’s got to be there: Got to be there!

Another way; One other road
Leading to where Lay down the load.

Thought it was together.
Found it to be never.
I could not do it on my own again.
Struggled to find answers;
Human are we dancers
And so we look to others on the way.

I raise it skyward!
Ah! Won’t you help me?
I look beside me:
It’s got to be there: Got to be there!

Another way; One other road
Leading to where Lay down the load.

Where did this deep apathy come from?
Where is this ambiguity going to?

(We are searching, wandering. We have lost our way.)

Felt the abandon go
And it is gone. You know
There is no way to get it back again.
Yet we go on somehow;
Even a goal there, now.
Even a hope that there’s a chance to win.

I raise it skyward!
Ah! Won’t you help me?
I look beside me:
It’s got to be there: Got to be there!

Another way; One other road
Leading to where Lay down the load.
