about

The introductory song of "Anabasis". In 5:4 time.

lyrics

is it half empty? or is it half full?
is it a bear? or is it a bull?
the metaphor snaps like a shot in the dark
I thought it would be just a walk in the park

walk in the park, walk in the park, walk in the park,
I thought it would be just a walk in the park

once in my youth I lived in the light
the doors were all open, the future looked bright
the goals came so easy, the message was clear
I thought it would all be skittles and beer

in the park, in the park, in the park
I thought it would be just a walk in the park


are you touched by god’s presence? or haunted by ghosts?
did your engine stop firing and leave you to coast?
but whether it’s dead or just needing a spark
you will agree it’s no walk in the park

walk in the park, walk in the park, walk in the park,
I thought it would be just a walk in the park

as I grow older, battered and scarred,
my life just a puddle spilled in a bar,
I prowl through the hours like a thief in the night
always in shadow, just out of sight

in the park, in the park, in the park
I thought it would be just a walk in the park


walk in the park, walk in the park, walk in the park,
I thought it would be just a walk in the park
I thought it would be just a walk in the park
I thought it would be just a walk in the park
I thought it would be just a walk in the park
