    Far Cry

    (best guess at the lyrics...)
     
    Pariah dogs and wandering madmen
    Barking at strangers and speaking in tongues
    The ebb and flow of tidal fortune
    Electrical changes are charging up the young

    It's a far cry from the world we thought we'd inherit
    It's a far cry from the way we thought we'd share it
    You can almost feel the current flowing
    You can almost see the circuits blowin'

    One day I feel I'm on top of the world
    And the next it's falling in on me
    I can get back on, I can get back on
    One day I feel I'm ahead of the wheel
    And the next it's rollin' over me
    I can get back on, I can get back on

    Whirlwind life of faith and betrayal
    Rising angle, fall back and repeat
    Slow degrees on the dark horizon
    Full moon rising lays silver at your feet

    It's a far cry from the world we thought we'd inherit
    It's a far cry from the way we thought we'd share it
    You can almost feel the current flowing
    You can almost see the circuits blowin'

    One day I feel I'm on top of the world
    And the next it's falling in on me
    I can get back on, I can get back on
    One day I feel I'm ahead of the wheel
    And the next it's rollin' over me
    I can get back on, I can get back on

    It's a far cry from the world we thought we'd inherit
    (You can almost see the serpent growin')
    (You can almost feel the planets glowin')

    One day I feel I'm on top of the world
    And the next it's falling in on me
    I can get back on, I can get back on
    One day I feel I'm ahead of the wheel
    And the next it's rollin' over me
    I can get back on, I can get back on

    One day I fly through a crack in the sky
    And the next it's falling in on me
    I can get back on, I can get back on

    I'm still working on the supposed reference to Old Man and the Sea.
