lyrics

When you came to the graveyard I was butt naked
I was so strong that chains couldn’t hold me down
You asked me my name
I said “we are a legion”
For there are many, many, many, many, many of us in here

I begged you "please, please do not send us out
Send us to the pigs grazing over on that hill
Don’t send us away, away from this country
For there are many, many, many, many, many more souls to steal”

When the people came, I was sitting there
I was fully clothed in the clothes they wear
I was sitting still, I was looking up
I was listening to the Son of God
I had a clever mind, I could form real thoughts
Could control my tongue, Lay down all my faults
And I begged you “please, can I come with you?”
But you said go home and tell what God can do
