Is it any Wonder

This is for my friend Danny, who has a thing for skulls, and Casey, who likes to dream. πŸ˜‰

Mark Heard was ahead of his time and understood where our culture was headed. The video is obviously older, it’s from his 1987 album, iDeOLA: Tribal Opera. It’s a great commentary on a society based on the assumption of evolution and that there is no God.

IS IT ANY WONDER
by Mark Heard

“i had a dream, it was a mystery
i dreamed of science and of history
i dreamed that since we stood up out of the dust
we formed our words on lips of beauty and trust
i should’ve known better than that
i should’ve known better than that
everything looks different in the morning

is it any wonder
is it any wonder
is it any wonder we dare to live in our dreams
is it any wonder
is it any wonder
is it any wonder we scare ourselves with our screams

i had a dream, it was a comedy
i dreamed i made a documentary
i looked in closets for the skeleton bones
i found them empty save for measures of gold
i should’ve known better than that
i should’ve known better than that
everything looks different in the morning”
