lyrics

Sword

sticks and stones fire and steel you think we care how you feel?
words and verse prophecies well tell us love did they speak of me?

writing on the wall we know a thing or two about writing on the wall so don’t say you never knew
the finger of your god pointed us to you and spoke a damning word and told us all the truth
Ezekiel they should have learned the hope in his name the grace in his word

swords! swords!
it’s too late break the gate! kill the strong eat the weak!
it’s too late flood the streets! pierce the slave bind the meek!

shadows on the walls ghosts of hidden sins haunting through the halls asking where you’ve been
you think you hide your secrets by preaching to the choir we’ll shout them from the steeple as we throw you to the fire

I love when your god’s right
I’m learning to love when your god’s right
you always knew this day would come

what happened to false prophecies of riches lust and luxury?
with fading eyes you’ll finally see your god was right when he spoke of me

Ezekiel 21
