We’re pretty sure this song has nothing to do with any Biblical story (except for maybe Original Sin?), but lyrics like,  “See your head/In the fading light/And through the dark/Your eyes shine bright/And burn/Like fire/Burn like fire in Cairo” are a good metaphor for the burning bush and Moses’ leadership through the vast deserts.
