Heat Come Down

This song is by David Knopfler and appears on the album Lips Against the Steel (1988).

You've had warnings
You've seen signs
Marked by omens
In prophecy and rhyme
From a land of shadows
Where the blind must lead the blind
I heard a lion roar
One more time

Let the heat come down
Let the heat come down
Let the heat come down
Let the heat come down

Crossed forbidden wastelands
Saw lightning shock the sky
Shed the skin of innocence
No tears left to cry
Held a snake called justice
Whose truth would ever bend
Whose sword is ever swifter
As it justifies its ends

And the heat came down
Yeah the heat come down
Let the heat come down
The heat come down

You read slogans
Glimpses of the end
Every crying sunset
Like a dying friend
High on the wire
Out on the blue
From behind the bars of madness
You see the truth

The meek inherit nothing
But clean cages in the end
Barons of religion
Want you as their friend
Sentence is delivered
The gavel slams
And another door closes
On these "empire" lands

Let the heat come down
The heat come down
The heat come down
The heat come down
