HAVE YOU GOT AN ANSWER?

HAVE YOU GOT AN ANSWER?
We need something in this cruel world
that makes us feel a sort of rest.
Where can we find it in our lives?
We are all lost and seek a trace.
 
The way that leads to cool our blood
that scalds our hearts and wears our veins
is found in drinks to soothe and calm
and cheer the hearts with drizzling rain.
 
I envy those whose blood is cold
and rules the fears the world provokes.
Where can their blood bring calmness from?
Tell me, l'll not forget my debt.
 
Can they be sure of what will come?
Don't they abhor the coming grave?
Will they depart just like a cat?
No loving Father will they meet?
