Feat. Light Goodfellow

Lyrics:

I’m John Henry with the mic

Freed slave from society

Hammer hand pounded words

Recorded for propriety

Sinking my iron bars deep

Keep on reminding me

In the realm of mountain kings

Pale gods rule, but cannot see

Tunnels dug deep through the quarry of the wondering

Keep striking true and pounding hammers ringing 'til the chorus sings

Hallelujah all my kindred, for soon we’ll see the light

We’ll see the light that shines for all our kind

For all our kind are sure to find what’s free for all of us to see

For those of open mind

The open mind will see that all of us all are of a kind

Metal on metal, and bare flesh upon cold stone

Mountains shake above our heads, fearing gods that never shown

Still wedging into bedrock, disputing what is known

Impossible to overcome, tormentors breaking bones

Continue on, don’t fear the rod, the end is coming close

Evil men are few and far and most of them are ghosts

Hallelujah all my kindred, for soon we’ll see the light

We’ll see the light that shines for all our kind

For all our kind are sure to find what’s free for all of us to see

For those of open mind

The open mind will see that all of us all are of a kind

Pneumatic piston needs a new mechanic

The one they’ve got’s an addict they keep locked up in the attic

Clearly these pale god fanatics have no thoughts

Minds enslaved by the lymphatic impulse, survive at all costs

Problem they can’t solve ain't quadratic, only thematic

Of the charismatic race wash pale priests display with cinematic prowess

Devoid of a democratic process

Let us not confess to monastic pale-ists

Katabatic hate descends the mountain shaken by truth

Crack up the foundation

Break through the barrier

Melt chains into hammers

Our message has new carriers

Send it out on horseback

They'll make it, thank the ferrier

Horseshoe telegraph outgoing

Impervious to harriers

Crack up the foundation

Break through the barrier

Melt chains into hammers

Our message has new carriers

Send it out on horseback

They'll make it, thank the ferrier

Horseshoe telegraph outgoing

Impervious to harriers

Hallelujah all my kindred, for soon we’ll see the light

We’ll see the light that shines for all our kind

For all our kind are sure to find what’s free for all of us to see

For those of open mind

The open mind will see that all of us all are of a kind

Hallelujah all my kindred, for soon we’ll see the light

We’ll see the light that shines for all our kind

For all our kind are sure to find what’s free for all of us to see

For those of open mind

The open mind will see that all of us all are of a kind
