Song Lyrics

Showers of your crimson blood

Seep into a nation calling up a flood

Of narrow minds who legislate

Thinly veiled intolerance

Bigotry and hate

But they tortured and burned you

They beat you and they tied you

They left you cold and breathing

For love they crucified you

I can`t forget hard as I try

This silhouette against the sky

Scarecrow crying

Waiting to die wondering why

Scarecrow trying

Angels will hold carry your soul away

This was our brother

This was our son

This shepherd young and mild

This unassuming one

We all gasp this can`t happen here

We`re all much too civilized

Where can these monsters hide

But they are knocking on our front door

They`re rocking in our cradles

They`re preaching in our churches

And eating at our tables

I search my soul

My heart and in my mind

To try and find forgiveness

This is someone child

With pain unreconciled

Filled up with father`s hate

Mother`s neglect

I can forgive But I will not forget

Scarecrow crying

Waiting to die wondering why

Scarecrow trying

Rising above all in the name of love
