...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead - Fields Of Coal lyrics

Well, I had a dream that I'd received a prophecy
Predictions and visions to be written by me
Didn't want them to come true, I was afraid, so I decided to run away

But what could I run to and where could I go?
If I showed my face, all the angry prophets would know
I ran into the wilderness, ran into the cold
I screamed why, oh, why did I ever run away?

Don't disturb those fields of coal
For they may turn into gold
And if they break you, don't let them run away
With your soul

Knights in white lighting shot out of the remote
They said, "Stand and be reckoned", I said, "Please, let me go"
They said, "Uh-uh, no way, you've gotta come true
We can't let you run away"

But I was taught by my mother not to do as I was bid
Always tried to do good but I was just a bad kid
They kicked me out of their schools, they didn't like what I did
And since then I've always been a little runaway

Don't disturb those fields of coal
For they may turn into gold
And if they break you, don't let them run away
With your soul

I had a dream that I was an alien
And in a ship of white diamond I was encircling the sun
The ship lost control, I got too close and I couldn't turn away

And the force of its gravity sucked me right in
But it didn't burn solid like the other suns did
Inside was a stage and they wanted me to play
I screamed why, oh, why would you just let me run away?

Don't disturb those fields of coal
For they may turn into gold
And if they break you, don't let them run away
With your soul

Don't disturb those fields of coal
For they may turn into gold
And if they break you, don't let them run away
With your soul
