I hurt the gentlest souls
I robbed my wife and son
I turned my back on troubles
Troubles I'd begun
I cut a swath of pain and loss
In the hallways of my home
In the quiet of my room
I know the things I've done

Save the hammer for the man
Save the hammer for the man
It's the calling of the wretched
It's the rising of the damned
Save the hammer for the man

I was driven from the city
In the wilderness I stand
In the cleansing rain and silence
I made my battle plan
Alone I march toward freedom
Leaving footprints across the land
With a vow that's left unspoken
Save the hammer for the man

Save the hammer for the man
Save the hammer for the man
You're never too far down the wrong road
To turn back and change your plan
Save the hammer for the man

I leaned against a hot murder wind
Beneath a hateful rain
Politics, apocalypse
Start to look the same
The price of my redemption
Will mean the end of many things
The ransom for my soul
The blood of generals and kings

Save the hammer for the man
Save the hammer for the man
I've sinned and I have suffered
And it feels good in my hands
Save the hammer for the man

I was driven from the city
In the wilderness I stand
In the cleansing rain and silence
I made my battle plan
I will whisper words of freedom
I will swing hard as I can
Lord knows the time is coming
Save the hammer for the man

Save the hammer for the man
Save the hammer for the man
If the fire's hot enough
Iron and steel will bend
Save the hammer for the man

Save the hammer for the man
Got to save the hammer for the man
I will whisper words of freedom
I'll swing hard as I can
Save the hammer for the man

Save the hammer for the man...

I will whisper words of freedom
I will swing hard as I can.
