lyrics

Omega Man
Is that what you need to be?
Standing strong against the hurricane
Unfailing for your family

The waves will break upon you
Until the end of time
You rage against them so fiercely
You can’t hear they’re calling you in…

Omega man
The way your father lived
The storms broke upon him
They took all he could give

They took him away in pieces
When you were still a boy
If you could hear his voice now
He is saying let the waves, boy
Pull you in…

Solos

Omega man
I was mean when we were young
Thought I did for the least of my brethren
You remained the staunch unsung

I turn at last to see you
Was Lost but now I’m found
You have gone to stand the point
I can only cry out loud
And be pulled in…
