At the textile plant
There's sixteen dead
There's a hornet's nest
Inside my head
My daughter's gone
She won't be back
Behind chained doors
They burned to black

Parked down the street
From the convenience store
I been keepin' a secret
In my top dresser drawer
Red light flashin'
Siren comin' loud
The trap is sprung
I greet the crowd

I'm a thousand tornadoes
Screamin' cross the plains
I'm Gabriel's Horn
On Judgment Day
I'm months of darkness
I'm years of rain
God's branding iron
Bears my name

There is no tether
To hold me back
There is no answer
There is no path
There is no reason
There is no end
There's just regret
There's just revenge
Tonight the tower
Bells will chime
Clear and true
One final time

I'm a thousand tornadoes
Screamin' cross the plains
I'm Gabriel's Horn
On Judgment Day
I'm months of darkness
I'm years of rain
God's branding iron
Bears my name

I'm making a list
And checking it twice
You name the place
I name the price
If you're feelin' lucky
Then hold your breath
And wave goodbye
When nothing's left

Parked down the street
From the convenience store
I been keepin' a secret
I won't keep anymore
I'm months of darkness
I'm years of rain
God's branding iron
Bears my name.
