"Crack the Big Sky" as written by and Neal Morse....
We played the liberation game
They gave a war - someone came
We dropped the torch... easy
Let's all go down and dance in the rain
Anything could happen then
Which scared the king and all his men
We better kill this feeling
We've been wrong before
It could happen again

[Chorus]
Rain came and soon became
A crack in the big sky
Night stayed and music played
We could not shame this high
After we came down, we hit the ground
Crack the big sky
Crack the big sky
What was all the fuss about
(let's all get out and work for nothing)
Let's make stuff we can't live without
(it's alright to believe in something)
We'll make up your meaning
Let's get you right in
You can't be left out

[Chorus]
Light the light's on Lincoln lake
Sorry boys, it was our mistake
Power makes you sleazy
Now you've lost your sight
Ain't it a shame x3
Rain came and soon became
The color of the sky
Night stayed and music played
We could not shame this high
Friends gathered 'round each other
No one was alone
And you want to run and tell your brother
That you've finally found a home
But you can't find a phone

    General CommentThis song I've tried to decipher and I think I've figured it out. The liberation game is the protagonist (here the US) went to the aid of a war torn country and we came to liberate the, (drop torch easy...scarred king and all his men). The rain seems to be a metaphor for humanitarian aid packages as they fall from sky like rain and the people were happy they were getting fed. WHat conflict was this- well I think the answer lies in "Lincoln's Lake" as the USS Abraham Lincoln was used in Somalia in operation restore hope. There society though didnt flourish as much as the west hoped if it was westernized and the following ruling powers almost as bad as last.

    General CommentI get a really big hippie vibe every time i hear this. I just can't see Neal Morse writing anything with that strong a message. I might be wrong, but I see the crack in the big sky as lightning.
