Verse 2:
Am
Well, the trees they got much smaller
Am 
The lake a lady's mirror
    G        F          E
We stopped to drink some wine
        Am
Then he threw the bottle over
  Am
It broke a minute later
       G       F        E
and he put his hand on mine
  C               C/G
I thought I saw an eagle
      C                C/G
Or it might have been a vulture
 D      C     B
I never could decide
        F             Bb
Then my father built an altar
           F             Bb
He looked once behind his shoulder
  F       G         A
he knew I would not hide.



You who build these altars now
To sacrifice these children,
you must not do it any more.
A scheme is not a vision
and you never have been tempted
By a demon or a god.
You who stand above them now
Your hatchets blunt and bloody,
You were not there before
When I lay upon a mountain
And my father's hand was trembling
With the beauty of the word.


And if you call me brother now
Forgive me if I inquire
Just according to whose plan.
When it all comes down to dust
I will kill you if I must
I will help you if I can.
When it all comes down to dust
I will help you if I must
I will kill you if i can.
And mercy on our uniform,
Man of peace or man of war
the peacock spreads his fan.
