about

This is our rendition of an old turn of the century folk song that originally warned sinners about God's judgment. We're not the superstitious types - so for us the idea of God is more just life. The lives we all create and live and how we choose to live them and the inevitability of death. The great equalizer. There's no escape.

We were inspired by Johnny Cash's amazingly haunting rendition that was released posthumously, but wanted to put the slaughterhouse flavor into it as opposed to just a direct cover.

We're also incredibly excited to have had our good friend Adoration Destroyed do featured vocals on this track. His somber timbre added the perfect counter balance to the otherwise manic vocals.

Enjoy!

lyrics

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later god'll cut you down
Sooner or later god'll cut you down

Go and tell that long tongued liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler the gambler the back biter
Tell em that god's gonna cut em down
Tell em that god's gonna cut em down
Tell em that god's gonna cut em down

Well my goodness gracious let me tell you the news
My head's been wet with the midnight dew
I've been down on bended knee
Talking to the man from down beneath

He spoke to me in a voice so sweet
I thought I heard the shuffle of the Devil's feet
He called my name and my heart stood still
When he said DAAP go do my will

Go and tell that long tongued liar
Go and tell that holy rider
Tell the saint the sinner the back biter
Tell em that god's gonna cut em down
Tell em that god's gonna cut em down
Tell em that god's gonna cut em down

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later god'll cut you down
Sooner or later god'll cut you down
Sooner or later god'll cut you down

You can throw your rock and hide your hand
Workin in the dark against your fellow man
But as sure as life ain't black and white
What's done in the dark will be brought in the light

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later god'll cut you down
Sooner or later god'll cut you down
Sooner or later god'll cut you down

Go and tell that long tongued liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler the gambler the back biter
Tell em that god's gonna cut em down
Tell em that god's gonna cut em down
Tell em that god's gonna cut em down

Go and tell that long tongued liar
Go and tell that holy rider
Tell the saint the sinner the back biter
Tell em that god's gonna cut em down
Tell em that god's gonna cut em down
Tell em that god's gonna cut em down
