THE SHOW GOES ON
Lyrics
The Show Goes On

I'm keeping it simple, as much as I can
Trying to make sense of the world
I don't understand it, I don't see the plan
I'm trying to make sense of the world
Why do we live, why do we die
Why do we pray to an empty sky?
Why do we love, why do we hate
Do we just dance on the hands of
God on high, if so then why
Does the show go on?

I wish it were simple
How hard can it be?
I'm not taking blood from a stone
I stumble on blindly, with hope I might learn
How to make sense of the world
Why are we here, what do we know?
Why do we dream like a picture show?
Are we on stage, a ballet or play?
Is there applause at the end from...
God on high, if so then why
Does the show go on?

It all seems so aimless, we're born and we die
Trying to make sense of the world
But love holds us steady, at least for awhile
And seems to make sense of the world
Why do we laugh, why do we cry
Why do we reach for a distant sky?
Why do we take the time to create?
Is it our fate to seek out this..
God on high
Perhaps that's why
The show goes on!

Why do we yearn, why do we dare?
Why do we sense that there's something there?
Does everything die and crumble to dust?
Or are we embraced in the arms of
God on High
Perhaps that's why, the show goes on
and on to another dawn
Where the show goes on!
