Slaughterhouse coming down the mountain, Lord
Slaughterhouse, coming down

A woman's tongue is a razorblade
Canary eyes just before the cave
Open wings, she spat into the war
Some Jerusalem stumbling towards
Only comes fall to an open ridge
Coward's hand with the teeth clenched
To the wolves, and all of Louisville
Holy Ghost, huh, but no miracle?

Slaughterhouse coming down the mountain, Lord
Slaughterhouse, coming down

Too many rafts for the sinking boat
Shattered screams of glass throats
Echo deaf, swallowed by the sea
Cold night for the enemy
Saw the fools beyond the wall
Raise the dead with spirit talk
Slip the cage, carry on
Only left of us, hollow bones

Slaughterhouse coming down the mountain, Lord
Slaughterhouse, coming down

Lyrics by F. Clemons Hall, some words slightly changed.
