"Mornings" as written by and John Baldwin Gourley....
Mornings go best with the sunrise,
The sunrise I used to see
But will never see now,
Even if I was waiting, we would just build it all up,
We'd look around until we find, we find

The people found the mountain,
Climbed up from that hole in the ground
Through the cracks in the sky
And threatened to fall,
Still I don't believe, no I don't believe.
And we'll be just fine, and we'll be just fine.

The future was born with the sunrise,
The sunrise that builds into days and even more years.
And as it rolls burning,
Burning up like the trails (of the comets pulled tails)
We'd look around until we find, we find

The people found the mountain,
Climbed up from that hole in the ground
Through the cracks in the sky
And threatened to fall,
Still I don't believe, I don't believe.

And we'll be just fine, and we'll be just fine.

As the sun it rose up from the belly of sea,
Found his bedding of clouds where it hung for years,
Still I don't believe.
While colors rained and poured from the cotton bound
Pools and the drips,
The drips stained us all, painted us all,
Still I don't believe.

The people found the mountain,
Climbed up from that hole in the ground
Through the cracks in the sky.
Still I don't believe, I don't believe.

The people found the mountain,
Climbed up from that hole in the ground
Through the cracks in the sky.
And I don't believe, I don't believe.
And we'll be just fine, we'll be just fine.
We'll be just fine, I don't believe.
No, I don't believe. No, I don't believe.

    My InterpretationI think if it is a religious reference, it makes more sense to me to interpret it more as "not believing" in creation/religion, at least not organized religion :

    "the sun, it rose
    up from the belly of sea
    found its bedding up in those clouds
    it hung for years
    still, i don't believe
    while colors rained
    and poured from the cotton-bound pools in the drips
    those drips stained us all
    still, i don't believe"

    I get big a "the world is awesome" vibe from this song, and the "still, I don't believe" parts make it seem like it's saying that even though there are these magnificent things in the world, but he doesn't necessarily think it was the work of a god in the traditional sense. Specifically that maybe he thinks the idea of creation makes sense but he doesn't quite buy into it.

    But that's just my interpretation; it could go a lot of different ways depending on your perspective.

    General Commenti highly doubt that in this day and age a group of intelligent human beings capable of making such a beautiful song would base it on such an IMPROBABLE theory like creation. i agree with river pigeon

    General Comment "the world is awesome" sounds like a pretty good description of the usual sound of the psychedelic rock sub genre
