Why's it never light on my lawn?
Why does it rain and never say good day to the newborn?
On the big screen they showed us a sun
But not as bright in life as the real one
It's never quite the same as the real one

And tell me grey seal, how does it feel to be so wise?
To see through eyes that only see what's real, tell me grey seal?

I never learned why meteors were formed
I only farmed in schools that were so warn and torn
If anyone can cry then so can I
I read books and draw life from the eye
All my life is drawings from the eye

And tell me grey seal, how does it feel to be so wise?
To see through eyes that only see what's real, tell me grey seal?

Your mission bells were wrought by ancient men
The roots were formed by twisted roots
Your roots were twisted then
I was re-born before all life could die
The phoenix bird will leave this world to fly
If the phoenix bird can fly then so can I

And tell me grey seal, how does it feel to be so wise?
To see through eyes that only see what's real, tell me grey seal?

Tell me grey seal, how does it feel?
Tell me grey seal, how does it feel?
Tell me grey seal, how does it feel, feel grey seal?
