Lyrics
The girl steps ahead and shes dressed in white
All because they said she was strange
The village is present the date has been set
For the death of Aliean Oban,
She opens up her arms
And now the rain is falling down
The tide has turned and faces burn
With hate on holy ground

Here they come, they come
Bringing it all back again
Here they come, they come
Bringing it all back with the wind

Will you open your arms

The man on the altar raises his hands
All because they said she was strange
But the good mask is twisted inside out
And normally deranged
The well of lies, the sea of faces
Becomes a waterfall
Theres trouble coming round the bend
And over every wall

Here they come, they come
Bringing it all back again
Here they come, they come
Bringing us Jesus again
Will you open your arms

Isn't it strange
How you open your arms to the rain

Here they come to push her down again
Here they come, they're bringing Jesus again

Will you open your arms.
