Testo seven stones - genesis

I heard the old man tell his tale:



Tinker
alone within a storm


And losing hope he clears the leaves beneath a tree.

Seven stones lay on the ground


Within the seventh house a friend was found


And the changes of no consequence will pick up the reins from nowhere.



Sailors
in peril on the sea


Amongst the waves a rock looms nearer
not yet seen.

They see a gull flying by


The Captain turns the boat and he asks not why


And the changes of no consequence will pick up the reins from nowhere.



Despair that tires the world brings the old man laughter.

The laughter of the world only grieves him.

Believe him.

The old man's guide is chance.



I heard the old man tell his tale:



Farmer
who knows not when to sow

Consults the old man clutching money in his hand.

And with a shrug
the old man smiled


Took the money
left the farmer wild


And the changes of no consequence will pick up the reins from nowhere.



Despair that tires the world brings the old man laughter.

The laughter of the world only grieves him.

Believe him.

The old man's guide is chance
