Lyrics

[Chorus 1]
I'm the man in the dark sedan
I have come to take your hand

[Verse 1]
I was sent down here to be sincere
Truthful and steadfast
I came to say that judgement day
Of man has come to pass

[Verse 2]
You can follow me
I guarantee to take you far away
We must leave before the eve
Of everlasting gray

[Chorus 1]
I'm the man in the dark sedan
I have come to take your hand

[Chorus 2]
People ought to be left alone
Unless they have a happy home

[Chorus 1]
I'm the man in the dark sedan
I have come to take your hand
[Chorus 2]
People ought to be left alone
Unless they have a happy home.

[Verse 3]
You will leave this place and soon replace
The names of those you know
With a brotherhood that has withstood
The leeches and the snow
