about

"Sent by the Man" takes a look at an executioner's last breath, as his life flashes before his eyes, as well as the perils of the moments just after Death has gripped his silenced heart. Is he forgiven? Forgivable? Awake and alive? Is this a fever dream as he steps up to commit his first act? A haunting echo as he tries to drift into sleep? Will he defy his orders or damn himself to a life of following? More questions than answers as Death interrupts his thoughts and we drift into the floating instrumental haze of the climax of the song.

LYRICS
I seen a man sitting on his own
Look like a wolf with a heart made of stones
There on a rock in the middle of the wind
Waiting so patiently on his only friend

And if you ask him just where he came from he say "I was sent by the Man"
Yeah you ask him just where he came from he say "I was sent by the Man"

Covered in blood where the hairs of his hand
The moment had faded but the stains would not cleanse
A fire was burning deep from within
He knelt down as others watched others watched others watched the washing of skin

And if you ask him just where he came from he say "I was sent by the Man"
Yeah you ask him just where he came from he say "I was sent by the Man"

He said "Devils and Demons and Angels, yes they gathered round to see,
The moment struck by lightning, the lightning struck by me."

And if you ask him just where he came from he say "I was sent by the Man"
Yeah you ask him just where he came from he say "I was sent by the Man"

Yeah, show me the way, tell me the truth, where you gonna run to now?
Show me the way, tell me the truth, where you gonna run?

He could not move, he was frozen in place,
no needle could stitch, the wounds on his -

(laughter)

Look around and you will see
Everything that comes from you hey it comes from me
Alright now, yeah yeah I was sent by the Man

Whachoo say? Every day? Who you with? Is it your own mind?
Yeah you ask him just where he came from he say "I was sent by the Man."

The Damn Fanatics San Francisco, California

"A firecracker set. Strong pranced about on stage like an ayahuasca-fueled Matthew McConaughey... dirt-under-the-nails, blue-collar funk flair... Juggling between the velvet tones of an Albert King influence and a Jello Biafra sneer." - The Bay Bridged
