Stairway to Silence

There's a cure safe and sure  

Education is gold

And it's building a stairway to science

When we get there we know

If the stories are all false

With a word we can get what we came for

Oh oh oh oh and we're building a stairway to science

There's still hope on the road

But we need to be sure

Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings

Find yourself in the books

Sink to learn, learn to think

Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiving

Ooh, it makes me wonder

That's a feeling I get

When I look at this mess

And my spirit is dying for learning

In my thoughts, I have seen

Signs of hope in the breeze

And the voices of those who standing looking

Ooh, it really makes me wonder

And it's whispered that soon

If we all call the tune

Then the teachers will lead us to reason

And a new day will dawn

For those who stand long

And the planet will echo with laughter

But there's a bustle in your hedgerow

Should be alarmed now

It's the last spring clean for the knowing

Yes, there are two paths you can go by

But in the long run

There's no time to change the road you're on

And it makes me wonder

Your head is humming and it won't go

In case you don't know

The piper's calling you to join him

Dear buddy, can you hear the wind blow

And did you know

Our stairway falls in the twittering wind

And as we wind on down the road

The shadows grow more than our soul

There lies a nightmare we all know

Who shines dark light and wants to grow

For everything to turn to mold

And if you listen very hard

The tune will come to you at last

When all is sham and sham is all

Forget science and then fall

And we're climbing the stairway to silence
