    "Toad The Wet Sprocket

    "Fly From Heaven"

    Paul is making me nervous
    Paul is making me scared
    Walk into this room and swaggers
    Like he's God's own messenger
    Change the name of my brother
    Change the things that he said
    Says that he speaks to him
    But he never even knew the man
    But I'd give my life for him

    Like water through my hands
    You'd give him any ending
    But if he's all you say
    Would he fly from heaven
    To this world again
    To this world again

    Take whatever you're needing
    Take whatever you can
    We are broken from within
    Run to another land

    Like water through my hands
    Or is it just beginning
    But if he's all you say
    Would he fly from heaven
    To this world again
    To this world again

    They took my brother
    They ripped him from me
    To twist his words as they did his body
    Denied his family
    Denied his beauty
    To lay him down at the feet
    Of those he couldn't save
    Couldn't save, couldn't save

    Will it be the end
    Or is he still ascending
    But if he's all you say
    Would he fly from heaven
    To this world again, to this world again "

    The song is about James, the brother of Jesus' concerns over Paul the apostle, who called him Christ rather than his real name (Yahshuah), as well as changed some of the things messiah said. Paul, as atributed to James in the song never met Jesus, he did however meet some of Jesus friends, and helped kill some of them, he held the men's cloaks while they killed the apostle Stephen, for example. That being said, this song presumes that James didn't realise Jesus divinity before he James died, hence James wondering "if he's all you say, would he fly from heaven to this world again?". By the way, James died after being thrown, by the priests and the temple guards, down the stairs of the temple in Jerusalem for preaching Jesus message, breaking his legs. Flavius Josephus, in his works, attributes the destruction of the temple and Jerusalem to this single act, the killing of Jesus brother. The temple and city were spared destruction at messiah's murder, but not his brothers.
