about

Written by James Quick, arrangement and revised lyrics by Lee Quick.

lyrics

At the source of the river stands the source of our pain
He's a killer and no law will bind him
So gather your weapons and sail on upstream
'Cause it may take us all just to find him
And for those against killing him
Here's what I say

He is, after all, just another lost soul
Not that he isn't a bad one
And we must do our part to destroy his black heart
Assuming that he ever had one
But it's best for the rest of us
At least, for what's left of us
Like losing a finger to save your hand.

At the source of the river we planted our flag
And we slew that bad man, or we thought so
But who would have known
He had friends who threw stones
And a lesson would need to be taught, so
For those against killing them
What can I say?

They are, after all, just a thousand lost souls
He led them astray, now they're bad ones
And we must do our part to destroy their black hearts
Tho we can pretend that they had none
But it's best for the rest of us
At least, for what's left of us
Like losing an eye to save your face.

Then their villagers cried
"We have God on our side!"
Tho we knew for certain that we did
And with weapons in hand
Swore they'd make their last stand
Seems history will be repeated
And although we must kill them all
Still we will say

They are, after all, the uncounted lost souls
Not that they all will be bad ones
And we must do our part with a cold, calloused heart
Tho the legacy may be a sad one
But it's best for the rest of us
At least, for what's left of us
Like losing your soul to save your pride.
