Rain sieved through my window screen, leaving clear freckles upon my cheeks.

The stars blanket the sun, but still flashes of white light up my room.

The sky roars and it cries as though it's fed up and the air rushes bitter down my side.

What Gods play with light
             and bend the water to make lightening?
     Who do they fight in the dark distance?
Staring into the abyss of night while,
            flash after flash, do catch my eye.
     I ponder again:
What Gods do play with light
and bend the water
          to hiss and crackle in the night?

Listen up now
'cause I heard the rumour
Best take heed
there won't be any warning
Son of a Gun
goodness knows He's comin'
Cowboy Dread,
Justice He's a walkin'

Riding three horses,
Death, Plague and War
He'll send you to Hell
and burn you to the core
Give you the nightmares
of your worst fears
I told you so
and I know you hear

He'll salt your fields
and disease your castle
Poison your wells
and slay your cattle
Sell your stuff
in a two dollar raffle
Lightening strikes
when the Cowboy's
sabre rattles

The damned will see
the smoke and dirty shadows
Stumbling down
through the thistles
and the cowards
Crying out to God
who never was a listenin'
They'll hear His answer
when Justice shadows passin'

The good folk say,
You know they had it comin'
He's given' good to the good
and the rest
are gettin' nothin'
All the downtrodden
and the caste
they been lost in
clapping their Hands
seein' hope on the horizon

The children see
the rainbows
with the showers
The children see
the meadows
and the flowers

The children smile
'cause their tired of cryin'
They been saying
their prayers
and the truth
it ain't a liein'

Innocence cries
Goodness is flying
Goodness sighs
Justice is riding
Justice arrives
Truth is in the saddle

The good folks say
this is all about to happen

'Cause they heard
it's all been written
a good mans riding
They can plant their seed
and live to see the harvest

He'll set things right
'cause He's on a mission
Gonna' send them to Hell
so we can live in Heaven

He's ridin' three horses
Faith, Hope and Love
Ridin' night and day
on the breezes from above
Ain't hearin' nothing
but the whispers
of His doves
Ain't got nothin'
but for the ones He calls Beloved

Listen up now
'cause I heard the rumor
Best take heed
there won't be
any warning
Son of a Gun
goodness knows
He's comin'
Cowboy Dread.
Justice, He ain't just a talkin'.

Even in the rain
Love remains
God alone
remains unchanged
He's still the same
Love remains

The winds they blow
and floods assail
Love prevails
Lightning strikes
then the thunder sounds
Love abounds

Jesus please say now
"Peace be Still"
Seek Love's will.
You have an ear
Oh let them hear

Love's there
Love's near

Then the Love will reign
gentle showers to wash
and heal the pain

The Spirit Winds prevail
gentle breezes
to fill Love's sail

Even in the rain
standing naked
in our shame
Love remains

God alone remains
unchanged
He's still the same

Love remains.

The cries of nature
Has burst the roaring skies
Rumble and tumble
Thors hammer spikes and strikes, spark
Jolts over a dead forest

Is my energy too strong or am I not as beautiful as the sun?
I know I never strike in the same place twice but I'd make an exception for you.
Because even though you prefer the warmth of her fiery beauty in the morning,
She will always leave you in the evening.
She's a lead you on but never stay kind of girl.
I, on the other hand, am the beauty of the storm, given a bad reputation because I lash out at those who've broken me.

I stuck the sand in which we bedded, my heart forever glass for a cowardly boy.

you set me crackling
like fire licking dry wood
like lightening striking cold earth
like crashing waves against the shore
and so, so much more

EDIT.

not only is mr bolt missing, there's a like button too.
