about

Ahh, this song is special. It's the 3rd installment of "The Border Trilogy", a group of songs we've been working on since the very first album. A classic Man v. Devil saga, told in funk-rock riffage.

lyrics

... And so I find myself headstong to the sun
With my back on an unrelenting epiphany
The double-lines and signs stretch for miles
But I can't quite see what they mean for me
It could be told I once ignored some advice
It could be said that I never thought twice, but I
I believe that all good things come to someone just like me

All gods' roads may be blessed
But they are few and far between
It goes to show you just can't kneel and confess
To keep your tracks clean

With my intentions firmly under heel
I have traveled this path too far to seek clemency
Today, there's no stay of execution
For the Judge will never show leniency
See the child at the fire, he's pale and thin
Before Man was, War waited for him
Now I stand as the sole witness
To contest this regency

All God's roads may be blessed
But they are few and far between
It goes to show you just can't kneel and confess
To keep your tracks clean

That subtle ring in my ear
That copper taste of blood and fear
How far is far enough?
Better get up before I give up

As that sun sets crimson in the sky
I look to the horizon to find my adversary
He has followed me like night after day
And conceded to me not one sanctuary
I may lose this fight but he won't prevail
For the devil you see is in the details
That's right, I'll keep what I've earned
And take it with me when I'm buried

Bootless and weather-beaten
Homeless and almost heathen
Defense? I don't need 'em
Because I'm soulless yet still believin'

All gods' roads may be blessed
But they are few and far between
It goes to show you just can't kneel and confess
To keep your tracks clean
All God's roads may be blessed
But that's not the way for me
You say you always know when it comes down to this
Now I see what you mean

At my funeral there would be
No pity or grief given
No-one would no of the broken down man
Who ate the sins of the living
And like a snake eating it's tail
I wondered if this was all in my head
How long can I keep this up
Before the Devil knows that I'm dead?
