They say the earth will crumble underneath your feet,
but is it really that great a defeat?
If you read a book,
you will gain knowledge,
but will that really get you into college?
What do they think of me?
An open book without a clasp, you are open to the worlds misery,
but you cannot close yourself unless you can see.
The Lord is waiting for your darkest of days.
Come to him slowly and you will be set a-blazed.
The world is ending slowly, not too fast.
Find the Lord,
and he will bring you back.
