"Graciously bestow upon all men felicity, the summit of which is the knowledge of the Gods." [Julian, Oration to the Mother of the Gods]

>"Have you ever felt a pain so powerful / So heavy you collapse?"

Have you ever been close to tragedy
Or been close to folks who have
Have you ever felt a pain so powerful
So heavy you collapse
I’ve never had to
knock on wood
But I know someone who has
Which makes me wonder if I could
It makes me wonder if
I’ve never had to
knock on wood
And I’m glad I haven’t yet
Because I’m sure it isn’t good
that’s the impression that I get

Have you ever had the odds stacked up so high
You need a strength most don’t possess
Or has it ever come down to do or die
You’ve got to rise above the rest
I’ve never had to
knock on wood
But I know someone who has
Which makes me wonder if I could
It makes me wonder if
I’ve never had to
knock on wood
And I’m glad I haven’t yet
Because I’m sure it isn’t good
that’s the impression that I get

I’m not a coward,
I’ve just never been tested
I’d like to think that if I was,
I would pass
Look at the tested and think there but for the grace go
I might be a coward,
I’m afraid of what I might find out

I’ve never had to
knock on wood
But I know someone who has
Which makes me wonder if I could
It makes me wonder if
I’ve never had to
knock on wood
And I’m glad I haven’t yet
Because I’m sure it isn’t good
That’s the impression that I get
