Our lives are but a vapor
Vanishing in the air
You breathe and laugh and cry awhile
Then you just ain't there
The world goes on and on
In days your memory's gone
Is this all that there can be
I'm searching for a dawn, a morning star

Throw away the paper
Don't want to be brought down
Stick your head into the sand
Don't ever look around
Reality is all around
Get high and just forget
But coming back down off your stuff
You still don't see yet, your morning star

My eyes do not see the reason I'm here
Scattered through my days are hours full of fear
Stay away from me -- leave me alone
There is no one who will care
My God, my Lord above, please show me
Show me, where is my Morning Star?
