Running out of time
A deep feeling of foreboding
I dreamt the world exploding,
Who amongst us can withstand
Our creedís most fervor demand,
Who amongst us can ever endure
or dare escape the devilís lure?
When the world is stalked by evil
Saints in cahoots with the devil,
If mistrust lies onward, love behind
If only hatred now breeds in a mind,
Lord, lest you enlighten all mankind
Youíll vex me with your errant mind!
Be the change, Lord, vouchsafe to me
Iíll die easy, let this my salvation be.
