Swallowed Up (In the Belly of the Whale Lyrics
anonymous Nov 12th, 2017 11:47pm report
Having a lament remembrance for one with the many people who were suddenly being caught up inside the 911 tragedy. And then dealing with the aftermath events in suffering pain, that followed Them and us as the survivors of that tragedy. Where Bruce I believe is trying to assimilate the story of Jonah in the Bible with a glimmer of hope for the survivors. As in the time when Jonah was in the belly of the giant fish for three days, then found on the shore of the waters. As in which could also be a modern day version of what happened to Jonah in the past as with us in the present. When the good moral and righteous hard working men, woke up one day by the grace and mercy of God to realize he/we was/were swallowed up by the traditional high hatters fish story of the past that was and is still embedded with that ancient Babylon religion. In which sadly became to represent the beast of the sea that swallowed us up like a giant fish whale that also swallowed up Jonah of long ago.
