They said they saw him in the morning
But they just couldn’t understand why he was crying
He came upon them without warning
And told them of the things he left behind him dying
Why did he come to our fair city?
Why did he say the things that only make us worried?
He said it killed but showed no pity
It came upon him like the devil’s raging fury
Why did it spare him? Why’s he here?
Who’s this stranger that walks among us?
And why’s he here? Why did he live?
Maybe a deal’s been made between them
Ooh ooh ooh
We gathered at the church on Sunday
And turned the house of God into a place of violence
With guns and clubs we met on Monday
And swore before the day was done there would be silence
