Alexander Ebert Lyrics

Old Man hypnotized
Spiders with ancient eyes
Black dogs who come in herds
Old Man, the word
Old Man, the word

Raised on golden days
God love the USA
Fed on the purple haze
Young men today
He heard them say
Amen, Amen, Amen

I'll never say goodbye
I'll never tell you lies
I'm never gonna die
Amen, Amen, Amen

Became the power man
Raised on the ocean
His hands, wrinkled brown
Melt with the sound, melt with the sound
Heros in silver scenes
Real men never scream
Old man I heard you dream
Old man, the sound
Amen, Amen, Amen

Young man's memories
Stay with the summer leaves
Old man, we can not see
Old men decay
Slip slow away
Old man, we'll hold your face
The suns danced for your song
Old man looked around
Heard but the sound
Amen, Amen, Amen

I'll never say goodbye
I'll never tell you lies
I'm never gonna die
Amen, Amen, Amen

A movie about living 'NOW'. The most important is 'NOW'. Great message in this movie


@ryan parry Amen brother 🙏

ryan parry

The days we live in "NOW" are more important than the days of the past, yes, I agree, but also, we need to be living the "NOW" days in the right way because where we spend eternity (the afterlife) is more important than the "NOW" days, ie. Heaven (eternity with God) or hell (eternity separated from God), we all have a choice to make where we are going to spend eternity, God bless you,

I've only seen the last half hour of the All Is Lost film and still thought it was brilliant, I'd really like to watch it from the beginning


Wrong. The most important is the afterlife.

true, its not that easy though

I saw the ending as if he was embracing heaven and it was gods hand reaching down. But that's just my opinion. Love this song btw.

Drew Cowlthorp, love this comment, so many of the Psalms are prayers by people asking God to rescue them.


@Jason Matthers The one and only true GOD. Father, Son, Holy Spirit. The Blessed Holy Trinity! 💙🙏💙
