about

This initially wasn't going to be on the album, but I had a creative writing project that I used as an excuse to write this. I put it on because other tracks I was planning to complete I threw out. I didn't know how to finish those.

lyrics

Come my people; I shall lead you to freedom.
Come my people; I shall lead you to new land.
Come my people; I shall ease your tired hands.
Come my people; come my people.

Ah!

Here it starts, not a moment too late.
Here it starts, with the fall of the gate.
Here I stand, with my blades in each hand.
And here I go on, ready to make them stand.

"You've got ten hours till it closes, Mara."
I'm a loaded gun with no way for mistakes.
I shall free your sick and your poor and your starved.
So come my people, I'm your liberator.

The water is long gone here
The outside is a lost cause.
So they say, but I won't take it
Not 'til they lay down their laws!

Yet there is water, and there is life
Outside, admittedly far...
Yet there is water, and there is life
I shall take you there, however far!

And here I stand before the man
Who oppressed them from long ago
And here I stand before the man
Who shall die tonight by my sword!

Let freedom ring!

Come my people; I shall lead you to freedom.
Come my people; I shall lead you to new land.
Come my people; I shall ease your tired hands.
Come my people; come my people.

Ah!
