Caught in the crossbow of ideas and journeys 
Sit here reliving the other self's mournings
Caught in the crossbow of ideas and dawnings 
Stand I 

Reliving the past of the maddening impulse
The violent upheaval 
The pure driven instinct
The pure driven murder
The attraction of daring
Stand I 

Why didn't you call on me
Why didn't you call on me
Why didn't you call on me

A wild being from birth 
My spirit spurns control
Wandering the wide earth 
Searching for my soul
Dimly peering

What could there be more purely bright 
In truth's day-star 

Why didn't you call on me
Why didn't you call on me 
Why didn't you call on me 
Why didn't you call 

Why didn't you call on me
Why didn't you call on me 
Why didn't you call on me 
Why didn't you call
