I pierced the sky from heaven
Wayward angel with no home
Child of chaos
Given life to roam

My cohorts took up battle
When wisdom failed to know
The blows once struck
Cursed me to roam

Roam, roam

I’ve transgressed map and compass
Clash and clamour
feud and row
I left the quiet life to roam

All weights and counter-measures
Pitch and yaw
And broken stone
I made the crooked path to roam

Roam, roam

I was there when Christ was thirsty
Wet his lips with bitter gall
Eased his pain
When he cried out for love

I gave the knife to Brutus
For Cain, I held the stone
With honey tongue
Led them to roam

Roam, roam

I’ve blessed a thousand children
All babes with mother’s gone
I left the wicked ones
To roam

I’ve got the wind at my back
No, I won’t linger long
I’ve set my feet on course
To roam

Roam, roam
