Exactly how much will have to burn
Before we will look to the past to learn
We walk along this endless path
Which has led us in a circle 
So here we are right back
We can’t let the future become our past
If we are to change the world
Won’t you tell me 
Tell me please
How many miles must we march
How many miles must we march

Ben Harper - Amen Omen
Diamonds On The Inside (2003)


What started as a whisper,
Slowly turned in to a scream.
Searching for an answer
Where the question is unseen.
I don’t know where you came from
And I don’t know where you’ve gone.
Old friends become old strangers
Between darkness and the dawn

Amen omen,will I see your face again?
Amen omen,can I find the place within
To live my life without you?

I still hear you saying
“All of life is chance,
And is sweetest,is sweetest when at a glance”
But I live,
I live a hundred lifetimes in a day.
But I die a little
In every breath I take.

Amen omen,will I see your face again?
Amen omen,can I find the place within
To live my life without you?

I listen to a whisper,
Slowly drift away.
Silence is the loudest,
Parting word you never say.
I put I put your world
Into my veins
Now a voiceless sympathy
Is all that remains.

Amen omen,will I see your face again?
Amen omen,can I find the place within
To live my life without you?

Amen omen,can I find the strength within
