lyrics

bring me forth from this here land
who's sunk it's teeth deep in my hands
i'm tagged and numbered and bound to clay
here i'm coming, lord

my pride has crumbled down again
and i've sold my strength for fear, my friend
my feet have crippled and my legs won't mend
here i'm coming, lord

a dead man's plea, a dead man's plea
will the gates remain for me?
or will rivers rush over me?

well i've seen that judgment day has come
so unsheathe thy sword and swiftly, son
with peace a'coming, the strain is done
here i'm coming, lord

entombed, embalmed, and cradled fine
i'm waiting for my maker's time
oh hear me father, i'm in line
here i'm coming, lord

a dead man's plea, a dead man's plea
will the gates remain for me?
or will rivers rush over me?

dig down deep, lay wooden sin
and sprout great wings from neath my skin
i know there's freedom around the bend
here i'm coming, lord
