PRISM FACE

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.  have you seen the prism light -
                 every angle another hue,
                 one for every point of you?
                 hemispheres of day and night,
                 Atlas overseeing
                 a world of different meanings?
                 like a great art,
                 every day starts
                 with a new interpretation.
                 like an ancient
                 sacred doctrine:
                 every man a new religion.
                 and could I have a prism face,
                 crystal hologram in space?
                 you might love me if you saw me...
                 if you saw me.

            II.  the face that launched a thousand ships
                 and sent them on a thousand trips -
                 how could anybody leave her?
                 on muddy shores, the puddle clouds
                 the shifting shallow life of shrouds.
                 but all is deep to a believer.
                 like a great art,
                 every day starts
                 with a new interpretation.
                 like an ancient
                 sacred doctrine:
                 every man a new religion.
                 and could I have a prism face,
                 crystal hologram in space?
                 you might love me if you saw me.
                 you'd answer me before I ask
                 what's the meaning of the mask?
                 but will you ever really know me?
