Holy Ranger Lyrics

IN THE HEAT
OF WINTER’S FACE;
THE SUN FROZE
LIKE A HEART ATTACK;
ALL ACROSS
THE CANYON EDGE;
THE ARMIES GATHERED/AND THEY PREPARED:
BENEATH THEM AN ENEMY/FLASHED ITS WOUNDS
AS BANNERS AGAINST/THIS MORNING LIGHT.

NO SHOTS WERE FIRED
WOLVES BEGAN TO CRY;
IN THE DISTANCE
FOUR HORSEMEN APPROACHED;
THEIR EYES BLINDED
WITH AMNESTY AND CARE:
A POET WARNED THE ARMIES/THAT NO HELP WAS RIDING IN
BUT THEY WOULD NOT BELIEVE HIM/AGAINST THIS MORNING LIGHT….

THOSE WOUNDED MEN CLIMBED
THE JAGGED CANYON WALLS;
THEIR BLOOD WAS EXPLODING
HOTTER THAN GUNFIRE’S FLASH;
CRUSHING ALL OPPONENTS
AND ANY OPPOSING FORCE:
OUT OF AN ANGEL’S PROTECTION/DRAGGING THEIR WAY TO THE CITADEL
CONQUERORS BY LOVE’S INNOCENT DEFECTION/WEAPONS AGAINST THIS MORNING LIGHT….

A SKULL NOW HANGS
ALONG THE TOWER DOME;
SPIDERS LAY WEBS
IN ITS CRACKING EYES;
NOBODY CAN GET OUT OF THIS PLACE
THE WOLVES CANNOT HUNT BY SCENT;
YEARS LATER SHOTS WERE HEARD/LIKE VOICES CUT FROM TONGUES:
SHOUTING AGAINST THE MORNING LIGHT/WITH NO ECHO EVEN IN WIND
THAT CARRIES AS THOUGH A POEM UNWRITTEN/ABOUT ME FOR I HAVE SINNED.

AGAINST THE LIGHT
