TO KNOW, TO UNDERSTAND, TO BE

To know, to understand, to be
To grow into a man who's free
Bestow a new command on me
And know the upperhanded key

To know, to understand, to be
Aglow's the flaming brand you see
Below the human standing knee
To go over land and sea

To know, to understand, to be
Outgrow the faerieland's esprit
O'erthrow, and countermand, then flee
And sow the Fatherland's decree

To know, to understand, to be
To blow the second hand agree
And throw the firebranded tree
Tableaus we will disband for thee
