from Tumble Down Slow (2004) BUY

and they tell me i have the eyes of my father
who gave his life fighting for the cause
and they tell me i am destined for the calling
the righteous heir apparent to the gods.

i’ll be the dream
the hero of the people

with a legendary mind
knowing all i have to do is
shake the ground, ground
and i’m strapped in for the final round
yeah i’ll step up to the fight
and we’re going up in dynamite

and i keep my courage thinking ‘bout my mother
who’s hungry as she was twenty years ago
she lives her life in quiet desperation
for her there’s no place i won’t dare to go


and i’ve got the message wrapped around my body
and success means they will get it loud and clear
and i walk this street to my final destination
with a martyr’s rhythm humming, pounding in my ears
