lyrics

Crept from the shadows, purveyor of tricks,
spends the midnight hour, looking for a fix.
Sings in the cemetery, skips between the stones,
born with a heavy step, and a hole in the sole.
The man who ate a hurricane, just blowing through,
spread his arms like a fever, and burnt a hole right through you.

Oh he took the mother, stole the sister too, now you're alone.

A young mother, seduced by the song,
a crooked lullaby, for her only son.
Bruised fingers, clutching her fragile heart,
He took the grace, in her faith and tore it apart.

Oh he took the mother, he stole the sister too,
now the devil's on the loose, and all you can do,
is cower in the corn, praying for shelter from the storm.

There stood the pastor, wretched with sin,
taming the hurricane, to a whimpering wind.
Shouting from the gutter, stood between the dogs,
"be gone, be gone, be gone my god!"

Oh he took the mother, he stole the sister too,
now the devil's on the loose, and all you can do,
is cower in the corn, praying for shelter from the storm.

The man who ate a hurricane, spread his evil seed,
sends his words out to war, on a calculating breeze.
The man who ate a hurricane, never blew again,
save us oh save us, from the storm within.
