Ezekiel Saw the Wheel

Ezekiel saw the wheel
he got down on his hands and knees to kneel before
the appearance of the likeness of the Lord
and though the scroll was sealed
he did believe that the evidence was real enough
to strike a vital chord
in the hearts of men and women
mothers, fathers, children
anyone who walks the violent earth
where the sun sells the world
and the world buys the need
to create new life in the home of a seed
yeah, where the seed sells its roots
for the sake of its vines
that grow up to bear fruit
that we’ll transform into wine
so we can taste on our tongues
the bitter taste of life
that flows through our blood
as we exist on the edge of a knife
