Unknown Blessings

Written and Performed by Ben Bochner


Lyrics


O, the stars above us twinkle
Yeah, they put on quite a show
They say the light that meets our eyes today
Was born a million years ago
And it spells out quite a story
In strands of DNA
The same spark that birthed the universe
Is borne in us today

And they’re already on their way, already on their way
Give thanks for unknown blessings
Already on their way

O, the world is a funhouse mirror
Sometimes you feel just like a clown
Everything’s distorted
Everything seems upside down
And the truth it just gets twisted
Like a rope gets torn and frayed
Til it feels like you can’t hold on no more
Til you just might slip away

Already on their way, already on their way
Give thanks for unknown blessings
Already on their way

History’s a spiral
Sometimes it’s hard to see
Through the smoke and the blood and the tear-gas
That it’s the path of victory
It’s a crooked road we walk upon
Strung with miracles on the way
But like raindrops to the ocean
We’ll make it there someday

And we’re already on our way

Already on our way
Give thanks for unknown blessings
Already on their way

Notes


The easy-to-join chorus to this song is a Native American ritual phrase of imprecise origins, woven into verses giving us a larger picture perspective on gratitude and hope.
