A white man, in a white suit on a white horse, rides into town off that dusty ol' trail.
He rides into town, not just any town, I'm talking d-e-a-d-e-n-d, with integrity and his heart on his sleeve.

He hopes they are going to buy what he believes.

He offers every fool and every friend (that's a population of one hundred and three) a cure to their unchristian like ways with a simple process of "drawing out" through a hole in the top of the skull.
Then a snip, a cut and a couple of knots tied off.
He offers to make them as good as new, "Better than you're used to."

Sadly, the locals didn't take kindly to this well intentioned man.
They don't want a hand out from him.
Instead, they take offense to a man coming into their town looking to tell right from wrong.

That's when the situation goes from bad to worse, as they string him up at the town hall. It appears our smart-ass should have kept along that dusty, lonely trail.

They tell him "The hands are the eyelids of the soul."

    General CommentThis song is just fucking awesome... I can hear a bit of the Fang Island influence creeping in this song in great ways.

    I think the song is about a few things, false prophets, people not wanting to be preached to, and the problems religion can sometimes bring
