Song of Cain Lyrics

Once I was a slave to the seed and to the land
In winter I obeyed the dormant sun's every command
In summer skin was scaled, callous caged
Once my body shook with disbelief to find
The harvest of my youth the only offering denied
By poison eyes of pride I was enraged
Within my heart a bitter war was waged

And once I held a gun to my brother's head
For every move I made another poison tear was shed
To feed the throb like thunder on the rise
The pulsing fury merged with the current of desire
It roared into the trigger click and the barrel blast of fire
And broke into the silence of those eyes
Spotless, sob-glazed, raised to the skies

And then my brother's blood cried up from the ground
Until all the wrath of God was awakened at the sound
And down upon my feeble heart it fell
He marked me with his word, I was branded like a beast
Banished from my home and left to roam across the east
Whose miseries no human tongue can tell
A land of thirsty soil, an empty well

Not even the Father's eyes, not even enough to take me there
Not even the Father's eyes, not even enough to take me there
Not even the Father's eyes, not even enough to take me there

Well you warned me of myself, you told me once before
That the danger of my sin was waiting, pacing at the door
That on my flaws the lawless demons smile
Well I have no hopes for heaven and of hell I have no fears
I see it every moment in the memory of those tears
I killed him for my love, me unloved child
A stranger cursed to wander through the wild
