From the recording Hammer on the Nail

Lyrics

Something's breathin' down my backThe sky outside has turned pitch blackThere's a storm cloud gathered on the hillAnd a hairline crack on my windowsillOh - Have I gone beyond the pale?Even as we speak, I hear the hammer on the nailSaw a coffin open wideWith a little baby child insideBeckoned to me with a white bone handSaid, "Come a little closer, you'll understandDo you You'll be a tear in Jesus' eye?"Once you think along these linesIt all unravels, it all unwindsYou ask me how I feelThere's a hound dog snappin' at my heelsAnd all these fears, once ignitedCome back uninvitedI've been lookin' out, I've been lookin' inI've been runnin' down the road in a howlin' wind
