"Every Man Is An Orphan" as written by William T. Campion, Bill Ryan and Brendan Joseph Ryan....
Walked the earth on my hands
Traveled at night and slept in trees
In hammocks arachnids left for me
Worked an oar on a slaveship
Scurried across the mindless sea
Dangled a line for extra feed

Born in the rain
Bathed in the rays of the sunlight
Forged in the fire of a volcano
As strong it seems
The best men are all still in bondage
The weak get their way, then they'll all die there

Every man in an orphan
Missing our early history
Searching for roots in mystery
Out to look for that ground
Circle the wind and chase the wave
Follow it to the oldest grave

Born in the rain
Bathed in the rays of the sunlight
Forged in the fire of a volcano
As strong it seems
The best men are all still in bondage
The weak get their way, then they'll all die there

Smoke rises, gathering
Smoke rises, gathering
They form a cloud, casting a
Shadow on our beginning
Shadow of a beginning

Smoke rises, gathering
Smoke rises, gathering
They form a cloud, casting a
Shadow on our beginning
Shadow of a beginning

Smoke rises, gathering
Smoke rises, gathering
They form a cloud, casting a
Shadow on our beginning
Shadow of a beginning

Smoke rises, following
Smoke rises, following
The fire, fire we all set
Around, waving


Smoke rises, gathering
Smoke rises, gathering
Smoke rises, following
Smoke rises, following
