about

Another parable: ordinary soldier runs afoul of the authorities.  Is treated with experimental potion,  has wonderful and terrifying visions.  In pursuit of destiny shown, gathers army of misfits, carves staff of symbols.  Captured, tearfully watches destiny fulfilled in the flames of his demise.  Inside there was sunshine, indeed.

lyrics

Foreign streets you walk
On your way to madness
Subtle smiles you meet along the way
The bird will talk expose your secret’s address
She’s had it in for you since your wedding day

They held you underground
And made you swallow wine
Spiked with turpentine
And turned your walls to snakes
Revealed your destiny
Divined with your third eye

That on the inside there was still sunshine

What kind of lion would roar then flee so quickly
And by your side a wounded wolf and sheep
No sense to hide their wisdom trump your trickery
Step outside your destiny awaits

They bound you from behind
And took your staff away
The Eagle and the Lion
Tossed in the flames
As the smoke rose from the fire
You breathed it in again
Your tears turned into shapes
The bed where she still sleeps
The arrow plunging deep
The diamonds set around
The circle of the crown
You had to fall to find
That on the inside there was still sunshine
