MISSION

I've got a mission
tell you what I wanna do
wanna wrap around your heart
and give my love to you child
wanna take your hand
travel this whole world
wanna see it through the eyes
of a little boy and girl
wanna see the rich and the poor
the mighty and the meek
hear about their daily lives
wanna know what gives them faith

chorus

It's my mission to find it
and to show it to you child
or else I will just live and die
and walk this heaven blind

Cause I know there must be something
that carries us all through
got a thousand names and faces
rituals and rules
to mystify the mundane
we cherish these like fools
God or scientific law
what stands behind it all?
and moves us on and on

It's my mission to find it
and to show it to you child
or else I will just live and die
and walk this heaven blind
