lyrics

THE YOUNGER SON Look at what I’ve done – unheard of / You will tell my story to your children’s children / A tale of what’s to come / A sign of what shall be / I am a prodigy, I am a prophet / The one and only, first and best / Prodigal prophet prodigy / (Spoken) Look at me! / Southward bound, bigger with every breath / Stronger with every choice / Freedom found, further with every step / I’m not a little boy anymore / Possibilities demand a possibility man / Maybe I’ll save a life, found a town / Turn the city upside down / Roll the dice, win the game / Turn my shame to glorious fame / Maybe I’ll find a woman / I’ll make her believe when she looks at me / I am what I seek / I am brasher than the mountain peaks in front of me / I am desert horizon; harvest moon rising / Look at me / I am all your dreams / I am morning dew falling on every field / There’s no stopping me / There’s no topping me / Northward bound, home will hear me coming / Just in time to save the day / Welcome found, running out to meet me / Running with apologies / Then you’ll do for me what I always did for you / Then I’ll never again need to / Chop your wood, mop the floor, serve the wine or open doors / Harvest crops, carry fuel, I’ll never have to do your bidding / Then you will honor me / Then you’ll see I’m not little brother now / I’m not your entertainment / I’m not like conniving neighbors / I’m not an ant who gathers food and shuns the world in worry naïve / You tried to keep me small, but you will sing / THE TOWNSFOLK Look at you / You are all we see / You are taller than our walls of domesticity / You are desert horizon; harvest moon rising / Look at you / You are all we need / You are morning dew falling on all our fields / You’re our prodigy, our prophet prodigy / Prodigy, our prophet prodigy / THE YOUNGER SON I believe in one god / Center of the universe / Bolder than the sun, cunning like the moon / Faster than a shooting star / More passionate than the sea / The Almighty Three in one – I, myself, and me / Your prodigal son / Look at me!
