Not Because


Not Because in dreams or theory

Or strange episode

Animated in some divine game

Does the silver sun turn golden

Right before our eyes beholdiní

Not because in some designerís name


Not because itís written in some

Jive genetic code

That can be explicitly explained

Do the lips of star-crossed lovers

Part and press into each otherís

Not Because thereís clouds does come the rain


Not Because lifeís like a bucket of flowing water,

A boxof wind or a painting on the panes


Not because on bended knee will

Supplicants fast fall

To what they think over them does reign

Does it mean that answered prayer

Comes from some one way upstairs

Not Because things change is why things change


(repeat chorus)
