Lyrics

Jesuits Lament I chanced to meet a priest He was drunk on holy water He said there are some things you ought to know He said the world is spinning down There really ain’t much common ground Hells the only place that’s left to go We kept denying trouble Till we got trapped in the rubble Knowing there ain’t a promise we can keep You know that you are surrounded And tonight you will be hounded By the wolves that you hear crying for your sheep Chorus; And it’s all about the promises That we can’t keep It’s all about a mountain grown to high It’s all about the promises That we can’t keep And don’t you worry about no by and by No don’t you fret no by and by The dragons in the desert The sand it is on fire The flames they just go higher every night His talons rip the tortured ground The earth emits a mournful sound Still they try to tell us that it’s right The dragon has a thousand eyes And so they tell a thousand lies To tell us that the dragon will stay tame Some day the dragon will come home And we will face him all alone With nothing left to shield us but our shame Chorus So go and find your flock my friend And do your best to shelter them Though you know you face a bitter fight The dragon is a hungry beast Your war with him will never cease Still you know you must do what is right Chorus: It’s all about the promises that we must keep No matter if the mountain gets too high It’s all about the promises that we must keep Don’t you worry about no sweet by and by Don’t fret yourself about no sweet by and by Repeat chorus and out
