The Uninitiated Man

The Uninitiated Man The curtains drawn, the candles lit In the circle here I sit Believing in things as best I can I am the Uninitiated Man. The sigils scrawled, the words intoned I wait for spirits yet unknown But neither Zeus nor Peter Pan Will greet the Uninitiated Man. I have not learned great mysteries No gods or demons speak to me And still there is no divine plan To save the Uninitiated Man. Oh, let me fall, oh let me break Let skies rain fire and mountains quake Oh, take my eye, my voice, my hand And make me an Initiated Man. This silent night, this silent room I sit and chant in private gloom Still in the place where I began I am the Uninitiated Man.
