Lyrics

In space a spiral cloud of gas and dust,
Collapses on itself and becomes us.
It didn't have to go to all that fuss,
'Cause it was all there is and all there was.

The photons from the early Autumn sky,
colliding with the neurons of my eyes,
Transform into the silver tears I cry,
For a moment I think I almost felt alive.
For a moment I think I felt alive again.

The electric charge of ions in the wind,
Dancing on the atoms of my skin,
My embouchure contorts into a grin,
For a moment I think I felt alive again.
For a moment I think I felt alive again


Sunrise as another day begins,
Just an illusion from the way the planet spins.
Where we're going is always where we've been,
That's probably why I felt alive again. That's probably why I felt alive again.

FYI:  There are several other musicians named John Cain. Internet searches can't distinguish between us. Therefore I started using my alternate name J. Riley Cain. It seems fitting since I moved to New Orleans. It sounds kind of "southern." Much of my catalogue of material is still found under the name John Cain.
