Lyrics:

Spinoza's Dream
Dave Nachmanoff

I was "Baruch," but now I'm "Benedict"
They called me heretic
But still I'm blessed

I had a dream, saw it was all the same
Nature and God, two names
For everything

CHORUS:
But my words they land in silence
Like the snow on the canal
How many years until they hear me
And understand, the dream I had
And realize the oneness of it all

And in my dream, I saw the evidence
Of peace and tolerance
In every heart

I wrote it down, in geometric proof
To try to share the truth
With one and all

(Chorus)

And so I wait, and grind my lenses here
To try to make things clear
And still I'm blessed, and still I'm blessed
And still I'm blessed
