Oh Sleeper – The Marriage Of Steel And Skin lyrics

Man, the one you followed has fallen to our foe
But, oh man, you can't just she'd your soul and let run all your thirsting tongues
Your tolls grow tallies but there's no judge to pay the debts
Our judge is dead but one must reside to bring down judgment

This is my call from the kingdom
And I will stand
Yes I will stand

I'll stand for the fires of the victims
Left to die
Left to die
And I'll stay until they're cowards on a pyre
Burned alive
Burning alive

I'll stand for the fires of the victims
Left to die
Left to die
And I'll stay until they're cowards on a pyre
Burned alive
Burning alive

Daughter! Sweet daughter
What has brought this bed of blood?
What man? What man has entered my home?
He's wreathed your body in sin
He must pay!
Now take my hand and show me the den where he lays
I'll marry a blade to his throat
I'll marry a blade to his throat
There's going to be blood for the blood that you spilled
Blood for the blood of your forced will

We stand by the fires of the victims
Left to die
Left to die
And we'll stay until they're cowards on a pyre
Burned alive
Burning alive

We stand by the fires of the victims
Left to die
Left to die
And we'll stay until they're cowards on a pyre
Burned alive
Burning alive

Now cut, cut till the head comes off
Until the head comes off
Cut, cut till the head comes off
Until the head comes off

    This album is a story of two people: an overzealous "sunday" christian and his athiest daughter.
    This song seems to be written from the perspective of the father. His daughter has been raped, leaving him enraged to the point where he is prepared to murder her assailant.
    The song is meant to show the raging vengence of the father, despite the fact that he claims to be a christian, a representative of christ until he returns. Two points here: being a "sunday christian" doesn't cut it, and actions speak louder than words.
