Lyrics
My eyes are wide open
My head hangin down
I was runnin through the woods
Like a rabbit being chased by the hounds.

On the side of the road
Lies a jawbone cracked
Some poor dead beast out in the sun
Rottin in the sun

Oh yeah. All right
Well, I was almost home
When the hammer came down

The more I know
And the more I see
I would have never known
When the hammer came down

Daddy had a hammer
It could shine like gold
Man, it sounded like thunder
He could really make the thunder roll

Raise em up, higher, higher
Bringing it down
But you never knew the difference
Never knew when the sun went down

Oh yeah. All right
Well, I was almost home
When the hammer came down
The more I know
And the more I see
I would have never known
When the hammer came down

68 Hammers ringing
Ringing a line
Takes so long
And I'm so so far behind
Wake up , please wake up
And tell me there's time

I made it to the river
But couldn't get across
And rising up in front of me
A crown of glory shattered and lost

Put away my sorrows
And put away my pain
And I'm never ever looking back
'Cause nothings ever going to be the same

I was almost home, almost home when the hammer came down
