Sunshine is creeping in
And somewhere in a field a life begins
An egg too proud to rape
The beginning of a shape of things to come
That starts the run
Life has begun
Fly fast the gun

The mother flew too late
And life within the egg was left to fate
Not really knowing how
The world outside would take it when it came
And life's the same
For things we aim
Are we to blame?
