To look at the future with knowledge and truth
Would be no problem at all
If the one who was looking would see where he's at
Yet feel where others may fall

For we all are each other at one point in life
We must all take fate by the hand
Then move gently forward to the light ahead
And learn the same difference in man

Then when we reach life's highest plateau
And stand with the wisest of men
We'll learn that fortune does not change our souls
It will merely take and unmask them

With this thought centuries will pass
And many a tear will be shed
For those who climbed up with their eyes closed to life
And saw only themselves instead
