Lyrics

Brother I firmly believe
That time is running out for me
My life a slave to urgency
And the dream I had last night
Was much too jarring to keep inside
And much too heavy for just one mind

As we lie there helplessly
Honey dripped from the serpent's teeth
With snakebites in our knees
The veins broke loose inside our eyes
Making it harder to see the light
Now every sun we see
Burns dim behind the tallest trees
Hidden by the canopy

And the rays of truth you cannot see
Are flashing through eternity
I believe that fate will pass
The snares in every human path

When the lighting in that eagle's eye
When the snow upon the mountain side
When the tremble in that night birds song is gone
When the sunlight in the garden fades
When the rust grows on those iron gates
When the auburn leaves have all turned to dust
I hope that I won't stick around
To watch us all burn to the ground
But if I must, I hope I see it all

When we wake to see
That the garden is dripping with blood
We'll know just what we have done
And my eyes will see
That all that was right with the world is gone
And I will be holding the smoking gun
