Smoke, Nothing but Smoke

from by Jay Tholen



we love raising the highest spires
only to watch them melt with fire
fervent jealous holy fire
we think we've got something new
to show this world we're passing through
it's really such a vain pursuit
do whatever you think you can
it won't mean a thing
go ahead and work on your masterpiece
it's nothing new to me
all the works our hands complete
have been and will be obsolete
meaningless, yeah it's meaningless
we'll compose the prettiest songs
about some love for which we long but
Jesus Christ has been here all along
