  • Come and take me down
    The dark beyond
    And take me there
    Where I come from

    Take me down
    To the place where I'll kneel
    And let me lay my shadow down
    In though the eyes
    Of a child's inner me
    No pain to heal my bloodied brow

    There is no rain
    To save this silent town
    There is no rain to save at all
    There is no place
    To save this silent ground
    There is no place to save at all

    Oh father take me
    Unto where I'll lay me down
    Oh Hallowed Ground

    Oh the sky is falling
    And I don't know where my home is now
    My Hallowed Ground

    Oh and can you take me
    For I have tasted Hallowed Ground
    Oh all around

    Father - oh do you hear me
    This pain I will not cry aloud

    Father - I know you hear me
    My head is bludgeoned but unbowed Writer/s: STEVE EDWARD DUREN
