STAINED WITH RED

I saw him coming
Coming on down the aisle
Had no time to ponder
He died with the heaven’s and devil’s smile

I and my white collar stained with red
Oh, who put these bricks into my bed
I’m as restless as the leaf in the sandstorm
Blown far sideways on a wayside course

The heavens and devils gave the vision into my soul
Even the shepherd wouldn’t take all my sins back
I could’ve draw a line through that moon’s shine in my hole
Oh, in my hole
And seen where the sunless sky faded all to black

I and my white collar stained with red
Who put these bricks into my bed
I’m as restless as the leaf in the sandstorm
Blown far sideways on a wayside course

Wayside and sideways
Cut up by the sand
Wayside and sideways
Lead me to the Promised Land

Late at night under certain light
I see crawling glimpses
Of my friend before what I did to him
All to deliver my penance

He will win when I’ve done myself in
He’ll sit with a vengeance
Waiting all night, ’til I’m on the wrong side
All to deliver my penance

Wayside and sideways
Cut up by the sand
Wayside and sideways
Lead me to the Promised Land
