We sang the psaltery
When I was young
Where, O where, O where is the Blameless One?

My spirit sank beneath the weight
Of words meant for a king
But show me a crown that means anything

I'm listening for news
Of something that I haven't seen before
So until then I'll keep listening some more

Strange stories come to me
Through these prison bars
But where are the earthquakes and falling stars?

So please send this telegram
There isn't much time
Because I need some answers
Oh I need some answers

I guess what I mean
Is that all these questions really boil down to one:
Should I look for another,
Or is my waiting done?

We sang the psaltery
When I was young
