Far, Far Away

and Peter was a liar
a traitor just like me
and Judas was a hypocrite
and Paul a Pharisee
when truth can be so distant
and hope evades our reach
Peter swam across the water
and found it on the beach

I hear they’ll hang you upside down
stretched across two boards
for hearing distant voices
and crossing to the Lord

can you hear the bells are ringing far, far away?
can you hear the voices singing far, far away?
I know that one day soon a song shall rise
you’ll hear it with the sleep still in your eyes
