In the summer that I was baptizedMy father held me to his side
As they put me to the waterHe said how on that day I cried
We were prisoners of love a love in chains
He was standin' in the door I was standin' in the rain
With the same hot blood burning in our veinsAdam raised a Cain
All of the old facesAsk you why you're backThey fit you with position
And the keys to your daddy's CadillacIn the darkness of your room
Your mother calls you by your true name
You remember the faces the places the names
You know it's never over it's relentless as the rainAdam raised a Cain
In the Bible Cain slew AbelAnd East of Eden he was cast
You're born into this life payingFor the sins of somebody else's past
Daddy worked his whole life for nothing but the pain
Now he walks these empty rooms looking for something to blame
You inherit the sins you inherit the flamesAdam raised a Cain
Lost but not forgotten from the dark heart of a dreamAdam raised a Cain
