(A crazed, fanatical, delusional Preacher)

You know he got the cure

You know he went astray

He used to stay awake

To drive the dreams he had away

He wanted to believe

In the hands of love

His head it felt heavy

As he cut across the land

A dog started crying

Like a broken hearted man

At the howling wind

At the howling wind

He went deeper into black

Deeper into white

Could see the stars shining

Like nails in the night

He felt the healing

Healing, healing

Healing hands of love

Like the stars shiny shiny

From above

Hand in the pocket

Finger on the steel

The pistol weighed heavy

His heart he could feel

Was beating, beating

Beating, beating oh my love

Oh my love, oh my love

Oh my love

My love

Saw the hands that build

Can also pull down

The hands of love…

Tennessee PASTOR was shot by police when he was able to pull a gun in the Capitol building…

A Tennessee pastor has pulled a gun in the Capitol, just months after he was banned from the building for disrupting Congress by yelling that he was a ‘prophet of God.’ Larry Russell Dawson was shot by police when he produced the weapon after it triggered metal detectors at the Capitol’s visitor center – hours after an active shooter drill in the government building. The 66-year-old, who has been taken to hospital where he remains in a ‘stable but critical condition’, was gunned down before he was able to fire the gun shortly before 3pm today. A female visitor was hit by shrapnel from the police’s gunfire. He has now been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and assault on a police officer while armed, authorities told DailyMail.com. Dawson, a married pastor at St Luke’s Spiritual Church in Antioch, Nashville, had been banned from entering the Capitol building after an incident last year. In October, he was arrested in the US Capitol for disrupting Congress by yelling ‘I am a prophet of God’ from the balcony of the House of Representatives.
