Adam Raised a Cain  - Bruce Springsteen
    In the summer that I was baptized

    my father held me to his side
    As they put me to the water
    he 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 veins
    Adam raised a Cain

    All of the old faces
    ask you why you're back
    They fit you with position
    and the keys to your daddy's Cadillac
    In 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 rain
    Adam raised a Cain

    In the Bible Cain slew Abel
    and East of Eden he was cast
    You're born into this life paying
    for 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 flames
    Adam raised a Cain

    Lost but not forgotten, from the dark heart of a dream
    Adam raised a Cain
