lyrics

THE GREAT UNKNOWN

Words & Music by: Piet Louter



I can see the reason why you’re loyal to your faith
And open to the dreamy light of the misty world of wraiths.
I am just as shy as you of what will come at last.
But we can’t deny the truth, that it’s anybody’s guess

At the great unknown, we just don’t feel easy at all.
And you hold by any straw, that might save at least your soul.


So you’re just a kind of thrall; that’s somewhat easier to bear.
Taking shelter behind the walls of a castle in the air.
I do understand your fear of losing all what you’ve got
Just making for an end so drear, whereby everything, which is, is not

At the great unknown, we just don’t feel easy at all.
And you hold by any straw, that might save at least your soul.
Cause your soul is out-of-bounds,
Beyond of what men can find.
But if it really should come about,
There is nothing in, nothing in, nothing in your mind.



Then close your eyes, when the moment of truth has come.
You won’t need to be scared
You won’t be aware of what’s going on.

And that you wished to see if you’d be borne out on your thoughts
Or only thought in kind in heaven on the minds of the one’s beloved.
