lyrics

I came alone and I caught my Lord
In a game of souls in the hole of a debtor's home
Cold as stone but I made damn sure
That the pain was gone and the dogs left the dead alone
I woke at dawn to the sounds of war
With a gun to load and an open torn letter from
The only son that my own mother bore
It said you know the poem now it's time that you gave us song

I saw a child in the ash and the stone
She danced for God she danced for nothing more
I stopped a while and I watched the show
She took my hand and she healed my broken bones
Before the fires had reached the road
We quit the town and gone for higher ground
She took my life she returned my soul
To the fountain side where I died and I was found

I'm not going to dead end
I'll knock on the Devil's own door

There's a soldier's song that we teach the young
Saying hold your own and take back what they stole
Now they've grown and the war's begun
The Order comes but there's no one left to go

I'm not going to dead end
I'll knock on the Devil's own door
