Walkin on Air

The Ballad of Steppin'Stone

Refrain:
Hey, can you tell me where to find
an exit death to flee?
Where're I seek my sight is blind
yet step by step I see.

(I)
An infant's crawl, a toddler's tread
into preteen matures
and thence adolescent swagger
hormonal peaks procures.

(II)
From adulthood to middle age
there seems to be no squat
but afterwards the wear begins
and dreams they come to naught.

(Refrain)
Hey, can you tell me where to find
an exit death to flee?
Where're I seek my sight is blind
yet step by step I see.

(III)
Earth, food and air, water and sky
with love, what more is there
except perhaps a longing for
footholds away from here?

(Refrain)
Hey, can you tell me where to find
an exit death to flee?
Where're I seek my sight is blind
yet step by step I see.
