The dead came home tonight
With their pleas
Death of the king
Banners hang above fallen trees
Mercy save me

The letter they wrote
Caught it and smothered it in smoke
(They burned alive)
It was blessed on our leaving They were gone and we prayed good-byes
(Two holes and stains in our eyes)

Bow your knees
For every one will sing
The song of reverence
Paradise waits
He said it himself
Sky turns red and
Every man with withered hearts
And bandaged hands
Are buried alive
With his passing
Were humble here
Faces down
Breaking down our selfish crowns
We cry out oh lord
Hallelujah
Holy fire
Holy face
Holy spirit
Fill this place
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

This is a warning
Immanuel
Words of the messiah
King of the jews
So bow your knees for
This is the last time
You’ll need them again

Glory, Glory to the king of humans

Turn your back to the red zone
Put your body in the blazing sun
Don’t fret my dear
