lyrics

The sins of the fathers go farther and farther
Our generation still waits for salvation
Our daughters' daughters will savor the water
That drenches their mothers and quenches like no other
Generation number five will be truly alive

Try as we might, we can’t change the past
We are the ones whom Adam begat
The whole is greater than the sum
Of its parts, together, we are one

The blood in our veins is exactly the same
It came from a man at the head of our clan
He’s more than a drunk, but he’s less than a monk
And we share the same mixture, colors blend in a picture
The image of God, but unmistakably flawed

The sins of the fathers are washed by the water
It cleanses the child of the scars and the miles
New family, new birth, for whatever it’s worth
Can it alter the truth that lies at her roots?
Grafted in the vine, she’ll bear fruit over time
