Dan Steven: Music

Individual

(Dan Steven)
2000

Dab asked me, "Mom, what does this song mean?" He'd received it and put down the words ... then we talked about a passage in the book of Kings, where the prophet Elijah comes out of a cave, looking for God. He does not find him in the wind, or in an earthquake, or in a fire --- but in a still, small voice. In silence.
Individual

I was an individual once when I knew nothing
But I think I know too much to be an individual now
The sun has always set and the sun has always risen
And my feet have gone feet-forward walking on the sidewalk somehow
Yeah, my feet have gone feet-forward

Pencil is stronger than the pen
If pen is stronger than the sword
And if song is stronger than them all
Silence wins hands down
Silence wins hands down

Silence wins hands down
Silence wins hands down

Silence wins hands down
Silence wins hands down
Silence wins, silence wins
Silence Wins Hands Down
