ADAM RAISED A CAIN

Live 01 Jun 1993 version


[Spoken intro:] Thank you, tough! Thank you, this is uh, this is a song about uh, fathers and sons. Got a little uh, my son's three years old now, he scares me already, I've telling everybody (chuckles). Why is that? (chuckles) I don't know.

Well in the summer that I was baptized, my daddy held me to his side
As they put me to the water, he said how on that day I cried
Yeah we were the prisoners of love, a love in chains
He was standin' in the door, I was standin' in the rain
With the same hot blood burning in our veins
Adam raised a Cain
Adam raised a Cain

Now all of the old faces, yeah they ask you why you're back
Well they fit you with religion and the keys to your daddy's Cadillac
But in the darkness of your room your mother calls out your true name
You remember the faces, the places, the names
You know it's never over, it's relentless as the rain
Adam raised a Cain
Adam raised a Cain
Woah!

In the Bible, mamma, Cain slew Abel and East of Eden, well he was cast
Now we're born into this life paying for the sins of somebody else's past
My
Daddy worked his whole life for nothing but the pain
Now he walks these empty rooms looking for something to blame
You inherit the sins, you inherit the flames
Adam raised a Cain
Baby, Adam raised a Cain

Well we're lost but not forgotten in the dark heart of a dream
Adam raiiiiised
Hmmm
