City of Glass
Red Sunset
Time will pass
Red sunset in the city of dreams
In the City of Glass
All is not what it seems
A solemn place
Distorted shadows in the afterglow
To hold the Lord’s grace
No rivers flow
Take a pause
In this distant land
And think for a second
Help is close at hand
Wait for the applause
To distort your mind
By the Lord you are beckoned
And misinterpret all you find
An innocent mishap along the way
Strange views
May lead to untold disarray
A mixture of reds and blues
Study the ways of a higher being
Secrecy and coding
And you may understand what you are seeing
Solemnity and foreboding
Inner peace lies close at hand
Numbers run through your head
If only you would enter the Promised Land
You reach 100 and then you are dead
