lyrics

He met his lady at a late age
In years and in history.
Deserts to the east and west,
Cobblestone super-highways
Ending in one city.
But theirs was a city
Of black collapsed stone,
Bodies and bone,
And tribes and tribes
Of men with shortened lives.

And then in middle age,
His mind was a heavenly light.
The day he came out of the cave.
The day he came out of the cave.

A few poor souls they gathered around
At the foot of his rocky hill.
Dancing and shouting
Make us well,
Make us whole, bowing down.
The merchants poured in their spices.
They all poured in their gold
Into gaudy things
And sexy screams,
Fortunes dreams
And even ice cream.

When he reached them at his feet,
His rage was a heavenly might.
The day he came out of the cave.
The day he came out of the cave.

He started his preaching
In front of the meat-market square.
Shouting to give up the buck,
And clean up their dissolute lives.
The old men and their goons
Were offended by the sight.
They picked up stones.
Bottles were thrown.
He had to be dragged out by his wife.

And when he left the page,
None of this world seemed to turn out right.
The day he came out of the cave.
The day he came out of the cave.
