The Pinnacle Lyrics

I've so much to say, and yet I cannot speak
Come and do my bidding now for I have grown too weak
My weary eyes have seen all that life can give
Come to me, O young one, for you I can forgive

I stood where no man goes, and conquered demon...

    It may seem like a song about a beaten and tired conqueror, but I believe it SO much more. To me it is about most of us that try and follow a spiritual path or simply those of us that are flowing inevitably toward the end of our journey. We experience our triumphs and we find comfort in our good deeds... we stumble and crash and our humanness and desire for things only of this world cause us shame and almost unbearable loss and guilt. Our mark of Cain. And what we saw as our attempt to rise above only results in a hero's broken blade. Yet it only takes one gleaming moment to see and hear the Voice that assures us, in a sweet refrain, that there will definitely be so much more beyond our tomb,,, a chance to rid ourselves of Cain's scar and an opportunity to tear away the heart of doom. We ultimately lose the life we have here but when we stand where no mortal man goes and are filled with the Spirit's grace, we see on awe that which we couldn't see by ourselves.

    A good old KANSAS song about a old Hero, like one out of old mythology who fought ''against evil foes'' and their evil deeds up until the end, who has reached ''The Pinnacle'' of his life as a Conquerer over evil that seems to be elusive to hold down. Now still in a world that has changed by evil ideology and seems to embrace it's never ending evil instead of overcoming it. He seems he wants to say a lot to his young followers at his bedside where he's too weak to speak in his old age now. While still seeing the mark of Cain left behind on their young able faces to carry on the good fight. Hey in today's day this song reminds me of a modern day Hero ALEX JONES and his ''info wars'' of Heroism who fought against the evil of our Elite Global Leaders ideology. According to my understanding Alex Jones info wars against evil helped our Pres. Donald Trump become Pres. Now the Pres. should help Alex Jones to still speak his mind with his info wars against evil doers of this world.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I believe Livgren is expressing the weariness of life and the way it brakes you down. I believe he is crying out to God and/or searching for Him
