about

Originally written for the "No More Gun Violence" compilation, this version picks up the beat and kicks up the rock and roll a little bit harder. The slower, more dramatic original appears on "No More Gun Violence vol. 2" available on bandcamp-- I highly recommend you download it!

lyrics

Now comes the halting of my pen
That weapon serving thinking men
For now the darkness gathers cold
Through coin of sweat and grist and bone


Now baser weapon's thunderous blast
No matter, then, whose wits are fast
A jackal equal to a lion
No courage and no new things trying
For the man with the muzzle and the musket and the fire power
Such is the man that wins in the death of the glory hour

my country comes a viper's den
through hollow creeds of boastful men
who stake their claim on unearned liberty
I ask them if there's any left for me
For the man with the muzzle and the musket and the fire power
Such is the man that wins in the death of the glory hour

And death comes roughly hewn and cheap
The clamor drones as bodies heap
And some fall fighting melee's midst
Their skills mean nothing, valor pissed

And now the goons go on parade
Their gumption shallow, a charade
Their rights in stone, their false decree
The right to kill with shameless ease
For the man with the muzzle and the musket and the fire power
Such is the man that wins in the death of the glory hour

And in the land of valor's heart
Are waste and ashes without art
Without the glory fought and won
Unburied dead beneath the sun
For the man with the voice and the crown of the prophet's power
Such is the man that weeps in the death of the glory hour

I am the man who weeps in the death of the glory hour
