I Can Feel Him In The Morning
He kind of started all the plants growing, and
he started people. Well, I guess he's kind of
big and fat.
He can see us wherever we do ... whatever we
do. He has such powerful eyes -- he has to

I can see him in the morning, I can see him in the
stars at night.
Take me out to the battlefield, let me hear the shells
Let me hear the sound of the cannons, let me hear them
scream and cry.
Whoa, can't you hear their dreams, as they tumble to
the blood-soaked ground?
Whoa, hear them scream for shelter, from the world they
