lyrics

One hundred years from now
What will rise from this land
I close my eyes and lie on my bed, see the buffalo wandering 'cross the prairie

Took a trip down the Missouri River, looking for a fugitive from fortune
The only way out was a vision, took my chances on St. Peter's mission
Oh the mission...

A cold wind took the fire out of me but a strong wind blew and sparked the ash
A fast train took my peace of mind but I shook the devil off of my back

Oh, does it show? Can you imagine what I know
Oh, does it show? Can you imagine what I know

Keep still, you said, don't laugh
I beg you I am a prophet
Remember an anointed ghost, you prayed and waited for my answer

But now death is all around me, I wrestle with it night and day
The Spirit of God and madness only make my destiny more certain,
more certain

Oh, does it show? Can you imagine what I know
Oh, does it show? Can you imagine what I know

They said, "you're gonna hang
You foolish, wicked, dreaming man"
A prophetic cry, a lamb with a gun
How could you see this battle won
