lyrics

The rivers are on fire
It’s raining molten lead
The scholars all are liars
The priests are all in bed
The dogs of war are howling
The Prince of Peace is dead
One hundred thousand canons
Echo in my head

I’m not the man I thought I was
Don’t like the man I am
I put a gag over my mouth
And shackles on my own hands
I’m standing on the sidelines
While the weak and poor are bled
And a hundred million canons
Echo in my head

CHORUS
See what we’ve done
In the name of the son
I try to find my way home but
Everything is gone

The city is a desert now
It’s empty and it’s cold
We thought that we got old and wise
Instead we just got old
The politicians promised that we’d
Overcome these days
The philosophers just shook their heads
And slowly walked away

CHORUS

Your heart has turned against me
My heart has turned to stone
I’m leaving here without you
I’m leaving here alone
And I will be the one who wanders
To the distant sea
And you will be the one who wonders
What became of me
