On Day One

Scattering seeds is an act of ancient ritual
long before we ever did it every
tree did it waving in wind
helped by the birds in its limbs
on Day One

Singing is medicine everybody needs
making a melody out of nothing
is magic greater than pills
cures every illness with skill
with the voice.

[chorus]
The first instinct comes from Day One’s face
it is to praise god by doing right
all else falls into place.

[verse]
I have heard people say all religion is bad
if you don’t like something you can always
say that it comes from the devil
making a joke of good and evil
but on Day One …

Open your eyes be aware of first things first
open your mind and your mouth to let in
chirp of bird light of sun
labor of love not yet born
on Day One.

[buffer]
Not too long ago chaos was king
them it took on a disguise
on the day we call the beginning
winter became civilized.

Those of us who know when that day was
relive it over and over
fairies and monsters become saviors
poetry becomes sober.

[verse]
Open your eyes be aware of first things first
open your mind and your mouth to let in
chirp of bird light of sun
labor of love not yet born
on Day One.
