about

“Draw near” she sighed, with delicate pride
“I believe in the night
Where dust winds blow and carrions crow
I believe in the night"

I’m gonna hammer on wood, hammer it good
The truth won’t show if the hammer don’t blow
Hammer on wood, hammer it good
The rest won’t know if the hammer don’t blow”

She had eyes of steel, couldn’t help but feel
That I believed in the hype
And when children tell and statures swell
I believe in the fight

I’m gonna hammer on wood, hammer it good
The truth won’t show if the hammer don’t blow
Hammer on wood, hammer it good
The rest won’t know if the hammer don’t blow
Hammer on wood, hammer it good
The truth won’t show if the hammer don’t blow

“Oh believers, who will lead your army now?”

Speak clear and clean, no smear no screen
I believe in the fight
And I’m a freedom slave, and until my grave
I believe in the fight

I’m gonna hammer on wood, hammer it good
The truth won’t show if the hammer don’t blow
Hammer on wood, hammer it good
The rest won’t know if the hammer don’t blow
Hammer on wood, hammer it good
The truth won’t show if the hammer don’t blow
Hammer on wood, hammer it good
The rest won’t know if the hammer don’t blow, blow, blow, blow.
