“This was one of those stories in the Bible that was difficult to wrap my mind around.  I tried to climb inside the head of Cain, and feel his tumultuous struggle. At first glance, I was disgusted and overwhelmed by his action. But with further honesty, I realized that I’m just like Cain walking the same road, feeding my own sinful tiger.”

- Aaron



I am willing • I am able • To strike the back and make it fatal • No one will notice • No one’s around • Out in the fields just brother and ground • Someone’s watching me •A tiger’s in the weeds • I’m the older • He’s the young • He’s always been the favored son • I’m the bad one • He’s the good • I’m the sad one, who never could • I hate him more • More and more each day • This is the price I’ve chosen to pay • Then from the shadows • Came the attack • That’s when the tiger jumped on my back • I should have known it • I fed him well • Now I’m returning to where I fell • I fed you when you where young • I knew this day would come • Look in the mirror • Look back at me • You’re the brother I could never be • I am Cain • You are Abel • Strike your back and make it fatal.
