about

Music by Mark Nichols. Lyrics from Brecht's "Caucasian Chalk Circle" translated and adapted with additional lyrics by Mark Nichols

lyrics

Look at you Blind Man, you're walking tall like God
Taller than the bent-back throng
Sure of hired fists, sure of all your power
Your might has lasted long
But long is not forever, forever's much too long

Wheel of fortune take a turn
Turn from age to age
Hope eternal hope on fire
Fortune burn with rage

Look at you blind man, what are you going to do?
What good is an architect, when a simple carpenter
That would be substantial to build a brand new home
It won't be in a castle, but a little hole in the ground

Wheel of fortune take a turn
Turn from age to age
Hope eternal hope on fire
Fortune burn with rage
