History, Beliefs and Bearded Men
(Music by Tom Levin. Lyrics by Tom Levin & Brian Hobbs)

I met a stranger on the path to grace
We stopped and spoke for a while
We talked of love and we talked of faith
How God’s love is reconciled

I said we’ll see what’s right
If we dare to look within
Through history, beliefs and bearded men

Then the stranger talked of Judgment Day
How we live and what we do defines a man
That we all are different, yet we’re all the same
And how we’ll never really understand

I too believe in right
And the righteous shall be cleansed
But you weren’t born inside the Lion’s Den

Through history, beliefs and bearded men
We shall find, our own, Jerusalem
Through history, beliefs and bearded men
We will find, our own, Jerusalem

Then we heard a voice say, truth is hard to find
That the worlds we embrace can make us blind
You can’t know what’s right from what has been
Forget history, beliefs and bearded men

Beyond history, beliefs and bearded men
You will find your own Jerusalem
Beyond history, beliefs and bearded men
You will find your own Jerusalem
Beyond history, beliefs and bearded men
You will find your own Jerusalem
Beyond history, beliefs and bearded men
You will find your own Jerusalem
