The spirit took me
And this old broken body leapt up and danced
Settin’ out
All my heroes in a bundle at my back
Hawk am I
More wings span in my shadow than overcast
You know what they say
Always need something to look up to

Said I got
Said I got what I need
Said I got the Sun and Trees
I got the sweet sound
And its gonna set me free

Yeah, momma I wanna be
Like the Mountains
Like the Sea
Yeah, tell the newsman he got his story
Couple young men
And they’re hungry

I made love to my ordeals
By light of holy fire
A lion rearing under ash
All the beasts of un-days loomed
And I saw Mars stand

Said I died
Said I died to strange eyes
Said I died to borrowed means
I found the sweet fire
And its gonna set me free

    My InterpretationThe imagery of the lyrics paints pictures of native American ideals (and probably influenced by the album's cover too). Seems to be about a rite of passage of boys to men in today's modern society (of sorts).
