There was the moon and there was fire I stood before it I felt desire
I didn't speak it it didn't seem it was the time to talk about it
There was moon and there was fire I looked into it. i saw it was two things.
It was You Lord, and it was Your absence. It was two things, and I thought about that.

(chorus -- it is good that you grasp one thing And also not let go of the other
For the one who fears God comes forth with both
Who knows what is good for a man during the few years of his futile life? He will spend them like a shadow and he will die.)

There was the moon and there was fire I sat beside it I felt it's hotness upon my face
And it was wonderful to feel hotness, and feel all things that I can feel, and see light and all light reveals.
All my senses and their capacity to receive beauty I got it for free
I didn't work hard to enjoy this I merely sit here and it is part of me
You have made me Lord I didn't buy me You gave me life and everything worth anything is free, so free
/chorus/

There was the moon and there was fire I laid me down there for I was tired
Through the night I checked upon it I did not want to roll up on it
In the morning it was ash, it didn't last
That's a story I can understand Its' happened several times since I've tried to be a man
I get this fire, but in the morning it is ash, It doesn't last
But I have heard there is a fire that keeps on burning the bright and morning star
/chorus/
how long shall we fake life O we civilized
