Ohio raised into a sickened fate
Connecticut born, pro-slavery to hate
I'm a killer, they tell no lies
Yet I should seem different in your eyes
Feeling strong for the cause and ready to die
Murderous raids for whom God's the alibi
Sinful seclusion, a guilty pain
You were careful, determined to win that game
Secrecy diminished
Ministry finished
My sins still grow as
"Bleeding Kansas" takes the blow
Evangelical angels slowly fade away
The rent in heaven becomes steeper everyday
