"In the time of the light
Before humans had the sight
Spent my life living blind
With a picture in my mind
A vision of the sun
And now my life is done
As I wait for the light to come
I will take not a thing
For what would I bring
That won't decompose
As my body is disposed
And the earth weighs a ton
And now my life is done
As I wait for the light to come... to come"
