    What a miraculous feat it would be,
    to truly be at ease,
    as your plane crashes aimlessly
    and within it finding your inner peace.

    A more frightening thought,
    for me there is none,
    in my nightmares only
    does this scene come.

    When I was a christian,
    this song would have relieved,
    each and every fear,
    now cynical, it's hard to believe.

    Tis true we place importance
    on things of little worth,
    yet if all amounts to nothing,
    why do we journey, our lives here on earth.

    A world at one, happiness shown,
    what joyous belief,
    that death could be a party
    where human minds meet.

    Terror and panic,
    no longer at work,
    everyone celebrating,
    as the plane meets the earth.

    In such things
    I would love to have faith,
    these lyrics leaving me to ponder,
    with much to contemplate.

    As I find myself thanking God everyday
    I must believe, to a degree,
    for giving my daughter
    and true love to me.

    Still I cannot fully believe,
    these concepts to be true,
    attempting to re-own my faith,
    carried with me throughout my youth.

    As an adult I find,
    they have somewhat escaped,
    apart from the few miracles
    which have taken place.

    Miracles I ask?
    Or wonders of life,
    either way I am thankful,
    yet believing is difficult, try all I might.

    A mere human,
    I return to my intellect,
    as I look back on my life
    and as I reflect.

    Upon happiness, joy
    heartaches and pain.
    Yet if I believed,
    from it, I could only gain.

    I fear still, it is mere fantasy
    and refrain now from such things,
    avoiding the tears
    or let downs, it might possibly bring.

    I see the good believing
    delivers to others lives,
    yet for me a painful reminder
    of the disapointments in my mine.

    Maybe one day I can,
    shift them aside,
    trusting once again,
    in an afterllife.
