lyrics

Welcome all ye strangers to the great divide
Welcome all ye strangers to the great divide
They say salvation's on the other side, some will run and some will hide
Welcome all ye strangers to the great divide

There's fire down below and the devil, he don't like rain
There's fire down below and the devil, he don't like rain
He built a fire stacked with pain and all our sins they shall remain
There's fire down below and the devil, he don't like rain

Well, there were three babies born and one of them couldn't see
Well, there were three babies born and one of them couldn't see
Well, it's just one out of three, I wish that baby it was me
There were three babies born and one of them couldn't see

And the good book says you'll fall like rain
But my dear Lord, I hear the train
And if I go and go alone
Will you still roll my heart of stone?

Well, if you want to hear the truth, you better take it to the street
Well, if you want to hear the truth, you better take it to the street
And if your toes fall off your feet, well, don't you dare make no retreat
If you want to hear the truth, you better take it to the street

I found a ten dollar bill and it was smiling at me
I found a ten dollar bill and it was smiling at me
Well I'm as human as can be, but the whiskey, it ain't free
I found a ten dollar bill, and it was smiling at me

I saw a bow legged woman and a long legged man
I saw a bow legged woman and a long legged man
And I didn't understand, I could've walked, but instead I ran
I saw a bow legged woman and a long legged man

And the good book says Yahweh is near
I dig a hole and have no fear
Bury my sins, fall to my knees
Had a crucifix, now it's just a tree

Jesus turned the water into wine
That kind of miracle suits me well
I'm not looking to fill my empty pockets
And I'm not looking to sell

And I'm not looking to buy a soul
These two arms can't carry much
And you can hold a shadow's hand
But it's still something you can't touch

'Cause when he died, where did he go?
Well I've been told, but I just don't know
And when he died, where did he go?
Well, I've been told it was a hell of a show

about

The Hollows Brooklyn, New York

A contradictory, harmonic melting pot that takes all its roots, twists them around, and produces something else; something new. With no frontman (or six frontmen), the result is a veritable junkyard of instruments and musical personalities, a carnival on wheels, a one-man band in six bodies that owns the stage with all the mobile, rhythmic ease of a seasoned railroad gang. ... more
