Lyrics for Deadman's Hand by The Church. On our way to crush the revolution Camp by a lake in the blackened lands Dealing out love. Dealing out the deadman's hand We've all known the pain And we're all gonna hurt again and again Empire's got you by the balls And sleep keeps awake for the tear And it's calling you Pulling you back here On our way to crush a revolution Lost in the caves of a used up place Night comes down

Из альбома: Deadman's Hand. On our way to crush the revolution Camp by a lake in the blackened lands Dealing out love and retribution Dealing out the deadman's hand We've all known the pain And we're all gonna hurt again and again. Empire's got you by the balls And sleep keeps awake for the tear And it's calling you Pulling you back here.

Deadman?s Hand finds the band in classic form, and is pure Church. Pangaea is a sweet, dreamy ballad with a quasi-Beatle-esque chorus. Happenstance is similar, though with something of an edge. Space Savior is one of the band?s weirder compositions, somewhat U2-ish, but with an aggressive, insistent monotone delivery that grabs you and does not let go. The second half of the album is even more bizarre and progressive than the first. On Angel Street is an eerie, minimalist, plaintive composition with a truly strange keyboard figure. Sunken Sun is another dreamy ballad with an edge. As usual, "The Church" deliver a good album full of sad and melancholic music. The time is of course not for a revolutionary album, which this one isn't. A normal follow-up to their numerous works. One of many should I say.

The dead man's hand is a nickname for a particular poker hand, popularly a two-pair of black aces and black eights, although definitions of the hand have varied through the years. Such a hand is said to have been held by Old West folk hero, lawman, and gunfighter Wild Bill Hickok when he was murdered

Deadman's Hand, Joliet, Illinois.
