I swing between the dark and the light
I struggle to do what’s right
through suffering and pain my only refrain
please release me from this endless night

I’m stuck in one position
I can’t get out
nothing will save me
I scream and shout

I struggle to make the articulate more articulate
and the inarticulate less so
will I ever learn the secret
will I make the bean plant grow

I don’t know
all I know is that I know nothing
will I ever find the courage to make things right
will I ever find my beacon, and chase the darkness with the light
