When rocks fall from sky and strike the weary ground
when buds strive for sun and shallow rains
and every limb stretches toward the deep blue sky
my mind cant comprehend these wonders

where tears of pain and joy collide
the day of death is a beautiful plight
I will not hold a grudge of denial
open your eyes you selfish man, and sing

You've got a hold on me

when clouds spit and blow and streams bend round
when flickering flames burn life to the ground
I know I'm not in control
of this feeble life my heart and hands hold

You've got a hold on me

I'm making sense
of what I dont understand
It can't break down
It had to be your hands

You've got a hold on me
