lyrics

Once you think it’s been collected
The truth becomes elusive
Confounding even wise men

Choosing it's own way
By which it's revealed
In irony it is concealed
Evading every trap laid

Once in the palm of my hand
It all begins to slip away

Contemplating thoughts of ancients
Who grappled with the questions
That only bring confusion

Looking for the clues
To what it's about
Once it's within we soon are without
Any sense of understanding

Once in the palm of my hand it all begins to slip away

And the meaning seems to disappear
Once we think it’s been made clear in our minds
When we stand upon the words we speak
They once again become weak in our mouths

To be enlightened then in the dark
Once all consuming now not a spark
Of former revelation

Once in the palm of my hand it all begins to slip away

Trying to conjure up the meaning
Through mindless repetition
Of words that once transcended

Always in a flux
We try and pin it down
Saying that it's here
When is really surrounds
All our thoughts and expectations


Once in the palm of my hand it all begins to slip away
