There was a single one
Then there were ten
Ten made a hundred
And a hundred million

You came and spoke to me
I saw your face
Your words were like raindrops
From a storm in a vase

Each generation different

He was made to love her
She was made to love him
And their offspring love them

And in the marriage of eagle and snake
The parents stay fertile
But the offspring is blank

The fire rages and all through the night
The flame is contagious
But the heat feels alright

Can't recognize our poverty

He was made to love her
She was made to love him
And their offspring love them

There is a darkness I feel coming down
And shadows that lengthen from the sky to the ground

And a silence that can swallow sound

He was made to love her
She was made to love him
And their offspring love them

He was made to love her
She was made to love him
And their offspring love both of them
