NOTHING
Music and Lyrics
by Peter Link

What is the chaff to the wheat?
Nothing
What is the dross to the gold?
What is the darkness to light?
Nothing
Nothing’s still nothing a thousand fold

Nothing’s no more than a fraud
Trying to be something when really it’s nothing
Claiming existence with no real consistency
What is matter to God?
What is matter to God?
Nothing
Nothing

What is the false to the truth?
Nothing
What are the tears to the crier?
What is an absence to presence?
Nothing
What is the ash to the raging fire?

What is the gain if a million lives
Are lost while the world is obsessed making war?
What is the point? Dear Lord! What are the spoils?
What on earth is it for?
What on earth is it all for?
Nothing
Nothing

What is the past to the present?
Nothing
What are the remnants of time?
What are the scraps and shavings of dreams
Forgotten and long left behind?

What of a thought considered then spurned
And left in the dust forsaken?
What was it worth? What does it matter?
If it was simply mistaken

What is death to life?
Nothing
What are the findings discovered by science?
What are the laws on which we place reliance
When we find the findings were flawed?
What is matter to God?
Nothing
Nothing

What is the chaff to the wheat?
Nothing
