The mountain beyond the village
Or the sea that we have never seen?
Me: Do you really believe you can find God
In the darkest caves of that ugly mountain
Or in the monstrous waves of that condemned sea?
You: The mountain brings peace to my ruffled mind
The sea provides depth of thought
And in both you find a faith
That can win wars no heroes have ever fought!
Me: The sea has never moved;
The mountain stands where it has been
for thousands of years.
I shall follow the river that runs between them
Ask her the stories of the battles that were won
And the wars that were lost.
You: The red river has always moved on
with a speed that nobody can catch,
leaving the scars on those pebbled banks.
Why would you trust the fables that it creates?
Me: I believe in the speed that it moves
I believe in the changes that it brings
You: It's so dark, I can't see the lines written on your chest
that you always sing whenever the river cries
that you always believe is the epitaph of time
Me: If speed is your belief and change your religion
I am the mighty rock that you can call God!
