lyrics

If the lord's a'listening to the prayers of mercy rampant in this world of sin
Ears will ring as I carve a path of malicious intent to your doorstep

You stole from me, You destroyed me
Put his life in yours hands and you snuffed it out
My son took the fall that was meant for you , His name etched in your grave

My world's gonna crash on me till there's nothing left
I can't look past this
Now my heart is shackled by your worst of sins
The chain connecting straight to you

I will dig, My soul with his right back into the dust
And I can't leave, This hole's too deep and there's room for more than us
Ashes, Ashes will lay across this earth
As I burn a path, till it's smooth as glass, Engulfing you in hurt
Your name is on my spade

Loyalty to your fellow man, False creeds make for a fragile band
The outlaw tools of your cold steel trade, Your men will know my barrel, my blade
One by one they will leave your life, My vicious questions crush their bite
I'll do to yours what you did to mine, And then you'll see why justice blinds

And your world's gonna crash on you till there's no one left, You can't look past me
Now my heart is shackled by your worst of sins, The chain has pulled me straight to you

I will dig, My soul with his right back into the dust
And I can't leave, This hole's too deep and there's room for more than us
Ashes, Ashes will lay across this earth
As I burn a path, till it's smooth as glass, Engulfing you in hurt
Now it's your turn

Only one thing left to learn, Your road has come to an end
As I drag you to your bed, I’ve made sure you've lost it all
Only six feet left to fall, My revolver's found it's mark
Now say your final prayer for peace, Before I set us free

Cast your stones, To break my bones
Tie my limbs to the prison poles, Condemn me now for what I've done
Nobody can wash off vengeance blood

As I march the dead man's walk, I embrace my punishment
Cursed, condemned by the angry mob, But I feel none of it
Last steps to the stairs, My final climb and then
Hang the noose around my neck, My gateway to heaven

Final words, I have none, I’ve said what I came to say
Now I'll stare at the setting sun, As you end my final day

Don't mourn my soul, Just contemplate my ending
The body grows cold but, My death is not a tragedy
The rage is gone, No longer fueling my heart beat
Committing my last wrong, That trigger is what set me free
Set me free
