Redemption will play her hand and I'll play mine
but she'll raise me and raise me till she leaves me blind
that cell door is cold when it slides on by
like the coal train stealing the sun from the sky

They say one who hates what he don't understand
is missing the soul of a God fearing man
well that's the way it is
that's the way it is
down here in the killing land
down here in the killing land

Time comes when a man just can't take no more
gotta lay it on the table and keep two feet on the floor
yet when they take you down that hall they say your legs give way
and you finally hit your knees and they drag you while you pray


I hope you find some peace
and you have no doubt
I'm gonna run through my veins
and drain this poison out

Oh the Lord could turn His head it wouldn't be no surprise
considering what I've done I was built to despise
but I'm told He'll be with me when they strap me down
and that's the kind of man I want to die around
