HOUSE OF TRUTH 
 
 
 
What is it you are looking for 
As you walk on the winds of time 
What is it you are looking for 
As you sit unraveling your mind 
What is it you are looking for 
At the crossroads of love and hate 
What is it you are looking for 
Standing all alone at the gate 
 
Come into my house 
I will sing you a song about life 
Come into my house 
And sit in the shadow of light 
Come into my house 
And kneel at the temple of time 
Come into my house 
Where the master of truth is blind 
 
And all the children sing their songs 
In the playground beneath the sun 
And all the parents say amen 
When their daily work is done 
They eat their bread and drink their wine 
And pray to the God above 
Then comes the serpent on the day of death 
And swallows the sacred dove 
 
What is it you are looking for 
Through the stained glass window pane 
What is it you are looking for 
Standing in the river of rain 
What is it you are looking for 
Staring at the starry sky 
What is it you are looking for  
Reflections in a stranger's eye 
 
Come into my house 
I will sing you a song about life 
Come into my house 
And sit in the shadow of light  
Come into my house 
And knell at the temple of time 
Come into my house 
Where the master of truth is blind 
 
And all the children say amen 
While their parents play their games 
They do not know who they really are 
They just call them by their names 
And the serpent slithers through the shadows 
Of your thoughts that grow like grass 
And the sacred dove flies above 
From the future to the past
