From the recording I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING: An Album in Three Acts
GURU, PLEASE TELL ME (Music and Lyric by Louis Rosen)
Guru, please tell me what you know. Are there heavens above us? Is there fire below? Are time and space like Einstein said? I got all these questions in my head…
I’ve read some books and I’ve read them well and I’ve read that Earth is really Hell and sometimes I think so — it kills my mood, how the rich get richer and the poor get screwed.
Guru, please tell me, do we return? Is it life we long for? Is it rest we yearn? See, I’m kind of old and the end’s in sight, but I got this date on Friday night…
Now if we return we should all take heed, ‘cause we know where our misdeeds will lead – right back where we started. No passing Go – just another opening of another show.
If the past and the now and the future are one, my granddad’s father could shake hands with my son. But if the lives that I’ve led are all happening now, I’ll never clean up this mess, no how.
Yes, if the past and the now and the future are one, my granddad’s father could shake hands with my son. But if the lives that I’ve led are all happening now, I must confess – it’s an S.O.S. – Cause I’ll never clean up this mess – No how!
