[Vocal Intro]

[Verse 1]
There was a single one
Then there were ten
With time made a hundred and a hundred million

You came and spoke to me
I saw your face
Your words were like raindrops from a storm in a vase
Each generation different

He was made to love her
She was made to love him
And their offspring love them

[Verse 2]
And in the marriage of eagle and snake
The parents are fertile but the offspring is blank

The fire rages and all through the night
The flame is contagious but the heat feels all right

Can't recognize our poverty


[Verse 3]
There is a darkness I feel comin' down
And shadows that lengthen from the sky to the ground
And a silence that can swallow sound
