"Leave Us Alone" as written by and Joseph Lyburn Arthur....
He was cut and then there was no fear
The dogs of hell within unborn
And like a ghost without an atmosphere
His voice sang without a song

Singing to the ships as the foghorns blow
Shipping light where darkness hides
The night was blind but it did see him go
For in this dark his light survives

Go away
Leave us alone
We don't know ya
Who you are
So far
From home

He stands before them as they judge his life
His shadow reaching underneath
He will fight he will reveal his knife
They will question his belief

They will shatter all his teeth
Blood from his mouth in darkness he can see
His suicide his love reborn
And hangin' from a noose in secrecy
His mind and spirit will divorce

Go away
Leave us alone
We don't know ya
Who you are
So far
From home
