Ghost Town (Freedom)

The earth was new, a great frontier
A perfect place to spread his fears
So Satan set up shop to draw them in
Bright lights to display all his wares
Come on in, forget your cares
That devil knew just how to package sin
People came from far and wide
Not a guilty soul denied
But before they knew they’d been deceived
They’d step inside and never leave

They said his eyes were black as coal
His voice a shudder to the soul
He preyed upon the broken and the proud
He told them they were lost for good
No one loved them; and who would?
Before too long he owned that fallen town
And from inside the gates they’d wail
“Who can save us from this hell?”
And as their hopes turned into tears
He laughed and all his demons stood and cheered

And down the dirt road from the East
Came one they said could slay the beast
But did not fight with bullets or a sword
They called Him ‘Mercy’ and at His side
A thousand angels chose to ride
And as they moved the ground like thunder roared
Stepping down from his white horse
With a supernatural force
He spoke to his demonic foe:
“I’m here to keep the lost; so let them go!”

But that great deceiver only grinned
As his demons rallied to defend
He said, “The price of justice must be paid.”
So Mercy rising from his from his seat
Showed them all His hands and feet
And said, “I am the lamb that was slain”
Then the demons and their thief
Shook their heads in disbelief
And began to writhe upon the ground
When they saw He held the keys to their ghost town

Then one by one the slaves began to shout
And the captives found their way out
Mercy broke the chains and they cried out:
“Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!”
Mercy broke the chains and they cried out:
“Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!”

Then one by one the slaves began to shout
And the captives found their way out
Mercy broke the chains and they cried out:
“Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!”
Mercy broke the chains and they cried out:
“Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!”

Then one by one the slaves began to shout
And the captives found their way out
Mercy broke the chains and they cried out:
“Freedom! Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!”
