Lyrics: On the eve of the last night in Baton Rouge On my ship full of soldiers, battered and bruised Well the flames grew high And the bullets, they flew And my brother cried out "Momma save me if you will" We went down down down to the mouth of the sea and she opened right up and she called out to me For a spell my dear listen hard, listen clear this ain't no story of love songs or women or fear There's no time to waste and I can't stay long For the gods up above have a plan to cast off All the burdens of man and the last of the sin That has plagued all the land, made it rotten and grim So my son, my son, salvation lay ahead But the sun will surely rise when we're dead So hallelujah, the lord is coming back Salvation is a bullet in my head The wise man say don't mind what you have left The sun will surely rise when we're dead So the lady of the sea, she spit me up and let me be On conditions that I tell every man and every tree Of the ?rife? was to come and the death that was to be If we'd only pray to god spare us please spare us please So I swam to the shore and I gathered my feet And I grabbed the first child that my eyes did see And I screamed at the boy "You must be strong, do not be weak For the time approaches now, even strong men are meek And all the wars that we fight, they are false and they are trite They compare not to what will be in our sight For the rocks will cry out "We were right, we were right" And the mountains will crash in the black of the night And the stallions will ride, and the sky will split in two And the beasts will devour the city of fools So my son, my son, salvation lay ahead But the sun will surely rise when you're dead So hallelujah, the lord is coming back Salvation is a bullet in my head The wise man say don't mind what you have left The sun will surely rise when we're dead So the boy took his fear to the head of the state And the leaders of the towns they all gathered and prayed They sang songs to the lord "Make us right, just make us free" And please bless us with weapons to kill all these things That you hate so much Need you wipe all us clean Give us money, give us power, give us everything And we'll rise, rise, rise to the top of the sea And we'll both cash out and we'll both come out clean But the man in the towns could not understand All the damage was done, there was nothing they could mend So they took to their homes and they danced one last dance With their wives on their arms as the children did ask "Daddy, what is to come of this life that we live?" "Baby close your pretty eyes, you've got too much love to give" And I did all that I could to be spared of this ?fire? Spread the word of the lord, gave up worldly desires But the lady of the sea could not save me from me And the mouth of the ocean swallowed everything And the rocks cried out "We were right, we were right" And the mountains did crash in the black of the night And the stallions did ride, the sky split in two And the beasts all devoured the cities of fools So my brothers, my sisters, salvation lay ahead But the sun will surely rise when we're dead So hallelujah, the lord is coming back Salvation is a bullet in my head The wise man say don't mind what you have left The sun will surely rise when we're dead The sun will surely rise when we're dead The sun will surely rise when we're dead As far as I know, this is an unreleased song, but its definitely one of my favorites this band.
