Lost in the sky
Clouds roll by and I roll with them
Arrows fly
Seas increase and then fall again

This world is spinning around me
This world is spinning without me
Every day sends future to past
Every breath leaves one less to my last

Watch the sparrow falling
Gives new meaning to it all
If not today nor yet tomorrow then some other day

I'll take seven lives for one
And then my only father's son
As sure as I ever did love him
I am not afraid

This world is spinning around me
The whole world keeps spinning around me
All life is future to past
Every breath leaves me one less to my last

Pull me under Pull me under
Pull me under I'm not afraid
All that I feel is honor and spite
All I can do is to set it right

Dust fills my eyes
Clouds roll by and I roll with them
Centuries cry
Orders fly and I fall again

This world is spinning inside me
The whole world is spinning inside of me
Every day sends future to past
Every step brings me closer to my last

Pull me under Pull me under
Pull me under I'm not afraid
Living my life too much in the sun
Only until your will is done

'Oh that this tootoo solid flesh would melt.'

    You know. It might be about Cain, the son of Adam. He's the one promised that if any man kills him, he would be avenged seven times over. His life exemplifies human difficulty after that; as the first farmer, the dust of the ground does not produce for him because of the curse of God on him, and he wanders the earth. Then, centuries later (as antediluvians lived up past 900 years), according to the book of Jasher, he is killed by an arrow fired by one of his descendants. Finally satisfying not only God's justice, but his own unconscious desire to atone for the sin of killing his brother Abel.
