There are no lamps along this lane

No light to guide the way

Just darkness and a path

And a map in your hands

What good is a map you cannot read

A path you cannot see

What to do with your eyes when you are blind

Your ears when you are deaf

You don't know where you're going

You forget where you have been

There's no one here to help you now

You're all on your own

You've waited for this journey for a while

You wrote the map yourself

In the safety of your

Lit comfortable room

But that was long ago,

And you've long forgotten what it said

Now you must keep going

You're almost there

There are no lamps along this lane

No light to guide the way

Just darkness and a path

And a map in your hands
