Rest Your Eyes by Ryan Balthrop
Go to sleep now, brother, rest your head a while longer.
Go to sleep, our brother, and awake feeling strong.
No more wondering why as the fireflies dance in the night. They are waiting for you, and lighting your way through the sky. Now that you have found your way to the light - rest your eyes, and…
Go in peace now, brother, your reward is coming soon.
Go in peace, our brother, and awake with a brand new tune. Whispers in the darkness carrying you into the light. We must close our eyes now - the heavens are far too bright. Now that you have found your way to that light - rest your eyes.
As we lay down and drift off to sleep, wide awake with all of our dreams and realities. We cannot live in fantasy.
Fantasies, they are but dreams that we can never reach - until we are face to face with our time of peace, in our hour of Grace, when we are released.
Rest your eyes, and go in peace.
Go in peace, go in peace now, brother, your work here is done. Go in peace, our brother, the good Lord is callin’.
We will hold you close, as we gaze up towards the sun.
As you rest on the clouds, smiling down on everyone.
Now that you have found your way to the light, and brother, now that you have left your mark on this life -
Rest your eyes. Now that you have found your way to the light - rest your eyes.
