The day before time was born nothing was peace and quiet
the holy tune shot the moon the heavens began to riot
in a pillar of ash and a thunder crash the sun and stars would rise
and all the creatures in all creation dreamt of walking upright

The desert burned the forest turned to highways deep and wide
the tempest grew and wicked bloomed and watched the water's rise
drowning in the sand and wind were the starving sick and stray
and all the creatures in all creation never dreamt it'd be this way

From the waters we've waded, the fires we faded our flooded hearts run dry
in cries that wake the dreams that break us each morning when we rise
and I lay my head I dream and wonder, naked as all the rest
for all the creatures in all creation, I wonder if I'm doing my best
