I came up through the earthy roots

I came up through the earthy roots
To be just one blue flash of lightning
The sky doesn’t even notice me
The cattle are briefly frightened

There’s been no time for reaching out
A spark like me is quick and gone
The floods came over where I died
Where the mountains meet the sun

Would you rob us of eternity?
In your shiny Cadillac
Is the graveyard your fraternity?
Is there really no looking back?
