about

The older brother of Farmer Jack can often be seen at night preaching to the Undead from the roof of his church as they pass by. He sees them as liberators of the religiously uncouth and thinks of them as friends.

The Preacher refers to any non-religious Living as 'Dirty Boys & Girls' and sees The Event as the beginning of the end eagerly awaits his ascension to the heavens.

lyrics

I've waited so long
for my time in the sun
my night among the stars
now it's finally come

A killer in the night
show me lovely things
do you view me like you?
am I to fend for my life?

"Go forth and rid the world!"
"Tell them what's to come
of the dirty boys and girls
and the world that they love."

Oh, friends,
can you hear me now?
can you hear me now, calling you?

A bastion for the world
to see what will become
let me sing to you on high
for together we run

Visions made of truth
there will be no other way
follow or be killed
(and I'll follow you too)
their light brings a new day
(shiny and new)

Oh, friends,
can you hear me now?
(we can hear you loud and clear from down here)
can you hear me now, calling you?
(are you sure that’s what you wanted to do?)

I bend my light to you
bring clear the muddy truth
(look again or you'll have blood all on you)
can you hear me from the roof, calling you?

Brother it's been too long,
(I've told this from the start)
Words almost too late
(You never listen and now I'm coming after you)

Sinners will be damned
by the dead in sinner's hearts
a vow unto your life
you will be saved as the world falls apart

Oh, friends,
can you hear me now?
can you hear me now, calling you?
