Whispered harsh untimely words
From your cave so far away.
Suffering has made you grand.
Suffering has made you...
Leaning on your staff of gold,
Your song still echoes through the days.
Suffering has made you grand.
Suffering has made you...

So much pain. So alone.
Your sacrifice breathes new hope.
An uplifting air to strengthen spirits struggling against gravity.
A new song for new ears.
A new joy, new tears.
An uplifting air to strengthen spirits struggling against gravity.

Harden truths forged by a hammer
With the delicate touch of an artist.
Suffering made you a man,
Suffering so gave you...
Has your Zarathustra found you?
Can you finally find some rest?
Suffering made you a man,
Suffering so gave you...

So much pain. So alone.
Your sacrifice breathes new hope.
An uplifting air to strengthen spirits struggling against gravity.
A new song for new ears.
A new joy, new tears.
An uplifting air to strengthen spirits struggling against gravity.

I am humbled by your existence
And by the power of the written word you yield.
You were so human, all too human.

Your courage, lends me strength.
Your wisdom lends me hope.
YOUR COURAGE IS MY STRENGTH.
YOUR WISDOM IS MY HOPE.
Suffering has made you, made you grand.
I will not follow. I'll find my own, but you point the way.
I will not follow. That path's my own, but you point the way.
