Greetings and Blessings {{{All}}} I found this full album version of, what i consider, one of the finest musical interpretations of the path less traveled.....from question to balance....it is rather dated(1970)...then again, so am I I do hope you enjoy this blast from the past...and perhaps, our future...in balance.

Why do we never get an answer When we're knocking at the door? With a thousand million questions About hate and death and war It's when we stop and look around us There is nothing that we need In a world of persecution That is burning in its greed Why do we never get an answer When we're knocking at the door? Because the truth is hard to swallow That's what the war of love is for It's not the way that you say it When you do those things to me It's more the way that you mean it When you tell me what will be And when you stop and think about it You won't believe it's true That all the love you've been giving Has all been meant for you I'm looking for someone to change my life I'm looking for a miracle in my life And if you could see what it's done to me To lose the the love I knew Could safely lead me through Between the silence of the mountains And the crashing of the sea There lies a land I once lived in And she's waiting there for me. But in the grey of the morning My mind becomes confused Between the dead and the sleeping And the road that I must choose I'm looking for someone to change my life I'm looking for a miracle in my life And if you could see what it's done to me To lose the the love I knew Could safely lead me to The land that I once knew To learn as we grow old The secrets of our souls It's not the way that you say it When you do those things to me It's more the way you really mean it When you tell me what will be Why do we never get an answer When we're knocking at the door? With a thousand million questions About hate and death and war It's when we stop and look around us There is nothing that we need In a world of persecution That is burning in its greed Why do we never get an answer When we're knocking at the door?

How is it we are here On this path we walk? In this world of pointless fear Filled with empty talk Descending from the apes As scientist-priests all think Will they save us in the end? We're trembling on the brink Men's mighty mine-machines Digging in the ground Stealing rare minerals Where they can be found Concrete caves with iron doors Bury it again While a starving, frightened world Fills the sea with grain Her love is like a fire burning inside Her love is so much higher it can't be denied She sends us her glory It's always been there Her love's all around us It's there for you and me to share Men's mighty mine-machines Digging in the ground Stealing rare minerals Where they can be found Concrete caves with iron doors Bury it again While a starving, frightened world Fills the sea with grain How is it we are here? How is it we are here? How is it we are here?

 

I've been searching for my dream A hundred times today I build them up, you knock them down Like they were made of clay Then the tide rushes in And washes my castles away Then I'm really not so sure When side of the bed I should lay I should lay... You keep looking for someone To tell your troubles to I'll sit down and lend an ear Yet I hear nothing new Then the tide rushes in And washes my castles away Then I'm really not so sure When side of the bed I should lay I should lay... Blackbird sitting in a tree Observing what's below Acorns falling to the ground He'll stay and watch them grow

 

Ask the mirror on the wall Who's the biggest fool of all? Bet you feel small It happens to us all See the world Ask what it's for Understanding, nothing more Don't you feel small? It happens to us all Time is now to spread your voice Time's to come there'll be no choice Why do you feel small? It happens to us all Look at progress, then count the cost We'll spoil the seas With the rivers we've lost See the writing on the wall Hear the mirror's warning call That's why you feel small It happens to us all Ask the mirror on the wall Who's the biggest fool of all Bet you feel small It happens to us all

 

You know he's moving fast But he's still going slow He's ahead in the race And there is not far to go And your load is so heavy And your legs want to rest It's all right It's all right It's all right You think he's way up in front But he's so far behind He's asleep in the grass And he's run out of time While your load was so heavy You never wanted to stop It's all right It's all right It's all right Your friend is heavy But he was ready And never stopped for a while While you were sleeping He went on keeping The final line in his mind It's all right It's all right It's all right It's all right It's all right It's all right Your friend is heavy But he was ready And never stopped for a while While you were sleeping He went on keeping The final line in his mind. It's all right It's all right It's all right It's all right It's all right It's all right It's all right It's all right It's all right...

 

When the breeze between us calls Love comes and lingers into our lives And the leaves begin to fall You point your finger at me I love you (yeah) I love you In the sadness of your smile Love is an island way out to sea But it seems so long ago We have been ready trying to be free And it's up to you Why won't you say? Make our lives turn out this way If they knew That we have got nothing to lose No reason to hide from what's true In the world of me and you All is forgotten when we're inside And the words that pass us by I am not listening, all of it's lies And it's up to you Why won't you say? Make our lives turn out this way If they knew That we have got nothing to lose No reason to hide from what's true That we have got nothing to lose...

 

Words, a simple song A minstrel sings A way of life in his eyes Hear the morning call of waking birds When they are singing, bringing Love -- Love -- Love Everywhere love is all around Everywhere love is all around Now the winter's gone Cold wind has blown The endless stream in our lives Where the minstrel sings This simple song He's always bringing, singing, Love -- Love -- Love Everywhere love is all around Everywhere love is all around Listen to the one Who sings of love Follow our friend Our wandering friend Listen to the one Who sings of love Everywhere love is around Around -- Around -- Around Hear the nations sing Our minstrel's song As he walks by in their lives Soon the spring will come And everyone Will all be singing, bringing Love -- Love -- Love Everywhere love is all around Everywhere love is all around Listen to the one Who sings of love Follow our friend Our wandering friend Listen to the one Who sings of love Everywhere love is around, around Listen to the one Who sings of love Follow our friend Our wandering friend Listen to the one Who sings of love Everywhere love is around Around -- Around Around -- Around Around -- Around....

 

Rise, let us see you Dawning is the day Miss, misty meadow You will find your way Wake up in the morning to yourself And leave this crazy life behind you Listen, we're trying to find you Flow to the sea You know where to go But still we are free No one tells the wind which way to blow Wake up in the morning to yourself Open your eyes and start to be you Listen, we think we can see you Baby, there's no price upon your head Sing it, shout it Now the angry words have all been said Do it, don't doubt it So rise, let us see you Dawning is the day Miss, misty meadow You will find your way Wake up in the morning to yourself Open your head and look around you Listen, we think we have found you Listen, we think we have found you Listen, we think we have found you Listen, we think we have found you Listen, we think we have found you Listen, we think we have found you Listen, we think we can see you...

 

I'm a melancholy man That's what I am All the world surrounds me And my feet are on the ground I'm a very lonely man Doing what I can All the world astounds me And I think I understand That we're going To keep growing Wait and see When all the stars are falling down Into the sea and on the ground And angry voices carry on the wind A beam of light will fill your head And you'll remember what's been said By all the good men this world's ever known Another man is what you'll see Who looks like you and looks like me And yet somehow, he will not feel the same His life caught up in misery He doesn't think like you and me 'Cause he can't see what you and I can see When all the stars are falling down Into the sea and on the ground And angry voices carry on the wind A beam of light will fill your head And you'll remember what's been said By all the good men this world's ever known Another man is what you'll see Who looks like you and looks like me And yet somehow, he will not feel the same His life caught up in misery He doesn't think like you and me 'Cause he can't see what you and I can see

 

 

After he had journeyed And his feet were sore And he was tired He came upon an orange grove And he rested And he lay in the cool And while he rested He took to himself an orange And tasted it And it was good And he felt the earth to his spine And he asked And he saw the tree above him And the stars And the veins in the leaf And the light And the balance And he saw magnificent perfection Whereon, he thought of himself in balance And he knew he was


Just open your eyes And realize The way it's always been Just open your mind And you will find The way it's always been Just open your heart And that's a start

 

 

And he thought of those he angered For he was not a violent man And he thought of those he hurt For he was not a cruel man And he thought of those he frightened For he was not an evil man And he understood... He understood himself Upon this he saw That when he was of anger Or knew hurt Or felt fear It was because he was not understanding And he learned ~~Compassion~~ And with his eye of compassion He saw his enemies like unto himself And he learned ~~Love~~ Then, he was answered
 
Just open your eyes And realize The way it's always been Just open your mind And you will find The way it's always been Just open your heart And that's a start Just open your eyes And realize The way it's always been Just open your mind And you will find The way it's always been Just open your heart And that's a start
