"The Spider And The Fly" as written by and Andrew Rieger....
Trembling like a fly all tangled in a web unseen
Feeling like I’m always falling backwards in the dream
Around me all the holy men were kneeling on the floor
Asking for forgiveness, they would wait forever more

A cool wind blows on by
The spider and the fly

In the dying light I saw a child there so fair
Bending through the shadows as she moved up through the air
I could hear her voice as it came calling through the dark
Though I never found her, I have held her in my heart

A cool wind blows on by
The spider and the fly

I could always feel you here with me, forming all the words I ever speak
Seeing everything that will ever be, through me

Over all the years now I have always heard this song
It sings me off to sleep and then it wakes me in the dawn
It was such a mystery I pondered all the time
One day without warning it came forming in my mind

A cool wind blows on by
The spider and the fly

    General CommentNot exactly sure, like a lot of their songs its about tripping, but there is more to it than that. "the spider and the fly": feelings of being the fly, trapped and helpless. Also about out of body experiences, past lives, and intrinsic knowledge gained from these things
