Until

Until it’s done,
Until it’s done,
Keep going on,
Endure with hopeful song.
Until it’s done
And we’ve gone Home,
We’ll keep on,
Pushing, waiting, pressing in,
Until it’s done.
Until it’s done.

This is a long, long road.
We keep doing as we’re told.
There’s no hope in how we cope,
It’s legislative, like a rope.
Put a label on the droves,
Let them understand their own.
Hunger clamours for a throne
And indulgences keep us alone.
Did we love or throw them out?
I don’t say this with a doubt:
If we wanted peace, we’d help.

Until it’s done,
Until it’s done,
Keep going on,
Endure with hopeful song.
Until it’s done
And we’ve gone Home,
We’ll keep on,
Pushing, waiting, pressing in,
Until it’s done.
Until it’s done.

We’re no better than the rest.
Can our faith really pass the test?
Do we brag before we repent?
Do we comprehend our own intent?
Pull the log out, leave a dent,
I’ve got something in my squint.
Cloudy day, but after this,
Sunrise​ still burns what we’ve bent.
Kick the squirrel out of his nest,
Cherry picking crows attest:
We knew more when we knew less,
And chasing fixes gets us spent.

Until it’s done,
Until it’s done,
Keep going on,
Endure with hopeful song.
Until it’s done
And we’ve gone Home,
We’ll keep on,
Pushing, waiting, pressing in,
Until it’s done.
Until it’s done.

I lost my mind…
Go back in time,
Find it stuck in rewind,
Replay the crimes,
The incessant rhymes,
The internalized,
Unintended lies,
Where there is no light,
And break down walls tonight.
I will not give up on this fight.
I know hope shines like a Lite-Brite,
I know it’s expensive, I’m a Mennonite,
We would rather know it all than take correction right.

Until it’s done,
Until it’s done,
Keep going on,
Endure with hopeful song.
Until it’s done
And we’ve gone Home,
We’ll keep on,
Pushing, waiting, pressing in,
Until it’s done.
Until it’s done.
