In the fire, the king will come
Thunder rolls, piper and drum
Evil sons, overrun
Count their sins judgment comes

The checkerboard of Knights and Knaves
Man will die, man be saved
The sky will fall, the earth will pray
When judgment comes to claim its day

See the word of the prophet
On a stone of his hand
Poison pen revelation
Or just a sign in the sand?

The checkerboard of Knights and Knaves
Man will die, man be saved
The sky will fall, the earth will pray
When judgment comes to claim its day

See the word of the prophet
On a stone of his hand
Poison pen revelation
Or just a sign in the sand?

    General CommentWas always a Wishbone Ash but for some reason didn't know this song. Saw them for the 2nd time in a small club in Chicago in maybe 1982 and this song was so powerful i was beeging for someone to tell me it's title 2 minutes in to it.

    How refreshing to see a recording (from what i would term sort of a heavy sounding band) that is based on Scripture. Particularly one who makes no claim to be anything other than secular.

    Laurie Wisefield could jam ALL night--their twin lead sound was second to none!
