Beggars

Thrice

All you great men of power, you who boast of your feats
Politicians and entrepreneurs
Can you safeguard your breath in the night while you sleep?
Keep your heart beating steady and sure?
As you lie in your bed does the thought haunt your head
That you're really rather small?
If there's one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all

All you champions of science and rulers of men
Can you summon the sun from it's sleep?
Does the earth seek your council on how fast to spin?
Can you shut off the gates of the deep?
Don't you know that all things hang as if by a string over darkness, poised to fall?
If there's one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all

All you big shots that swagger and stride with conceit
Did you devise how your frame would be formed?
If you'd be raised in a palace or left out on the streets?
Chose the place or the hour you'd be born?
Tell me what can you claim? Not a thing, not your name
Tell me if you can recall just one thing, not a gift, in this life

Can you hear what's been said?
Can you see now that everything's grace after all?
If there's one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all
