Lot’s Wife

Experimental.  The intro and interlude are Biblical.  The song is based on the consequences of dwelling in the past as opposed to moving forward.

Intro:

And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. Remember Lot’s wife.

 

Verse 1:

As I prepare, for my new journey

I’m trying to avoid all my memories

Yeah, there were good days

And also, there were bad days

But I’m trying to stay in the present

And I’m trying, to pave my future

What good does it do, to dwell in the past

Must remember it, but can’t become a slave to it

 

Chorus:

I remember, I remember Lot’s wife

She looked back, turned into a pillar of salt

I remember, I remember Lot’s wife

Why did she look back? Should’ve look forward.

 

Interlude:

And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. Remember Lot’s wife.

 

Verse 2:

As I embrace this new journey

I eschew these blasted memories

Yeah, I’ll cherish some times

And play revisionist to others,

But I’m trying to stay in the present

And I’m trying, to pave my future

What good does it do, to dwell in the past

Must remember it, but can’t become a slave to it

 

Chorus:

I remember, I remember Lot’s wife

She looked back, turned into a pillar of salt

I remember, I remember Lot’s wife

Why did she look back? Should’ve look forward.

 

Outro:

And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. Remember Lot’s wife.
