lyrics

The young man's bride took her last breath
As their baby took it's first.
He wept at her side, and he cursed the skies
and he cursed the barren dirt.

And he asked the preacher, "Tell me why
must the father take my wife?"
And the preacher spoke of Job,
and of man's suffering and strife.

But all the young man heard was,
"La da da da da..."

The young man took his problem to
The gypsy down the road.
He paid her fee and he sat down
As she clutched her crystal globe.

And the gypsy said, "I hear your wife
Speak from the other side.
She's saying that she loves you,
and you'll see her in due time."

The young man told his story to
A great man of the mind.
Who told him that to worry,
It was just a waste of time.

"Remember that we're all just ants
Crawling on a rock in space.
In time, the sun will swallow us
and life will be erased."

Fables.
