lyrics

Abel
What you hold in your hands
It is a good gift
It is the first of your land
You have a brother
He has his own gift too
And it is murder
Upon the land, upon you

You don’t know why
The people do what they do
It is a fading light
Though it once felt so new
Did he call you brother?
Did it once ring true?
It is a violent order
You were place into
And it isn’t through


Cain look
You’ve got his blood on your hands
It spilled out
And kissed a dry land
That was thirsty
And begging for a drink
With an open mouth
You didn’t know could speak

It’s saying
Right on, the earth is spinning
You thought that you were winning
You crawl just like a serpent
You fall just like the first did and the last will

So would you listen
To the voice from above
Because it calls out
It’s thirsty for the blood
But you broke down
You could not provide
You cursed the ground
Your mark will take time

Your saying
Hold on, let’s be patient
Abel just couldn’t make it
Am I my brother’s keeper?
Or am I a new deceiver?
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know
Where to go, Where to go, Where to go

You don’t know why
The hands do what they do
Was it a split decision?
Or was it laid out for you
Within your composition
Were you only true?
You were a violent man
Were you the first to choose?
Are you forgiven?
He put a mark on you

And He’s saying
Come on, it’s time to face this
You thought that you were wasted
You fall just like your parents
You walk in new awareness

With a mark on you
To see you through
He put a mark on you
He will see you through
Oh, it is not through
