Lyrics


PLAGUE OF BLOOD

a plague of blood and a trail of tears
i do believe the judgement day has come
we were warned their'd be signs
we did not head their cries
and now
we're wailing for the dead

we can sound the alarm
make our fortress strong
raise up the gun that's in our hand
oh, we righteously deny
claim God is on our side
but we have not kept thy law's demands

thou shall not steal thy neighbor's land
claim it's his and kill off all his kin
make it free for those that look like him
thou shall not steal thy neighbors land

Lord have mercy on us all
guilty as charged
nothing can change the wrongs we've done
oh your grace we don't deserve
the greed that we have served
forged a trail of tears
and a plague of blood

thou shall not steal thy neighbors land
claim it's his and kill off all his kin
make it free for those that look like him
thou shall not steal thy neighbor's land

since the dawn of time and the fall of man
we could not keep thy laws commands
that's why Jesus died and rose again
righteous words don't make a righteous man
