  • Tell me again
    When I’ve been to the river
    And I’ve taken the edge off my thirst
    Tell me again
    We’re alone and I’m listening
    I’m listening so hard that it hurts
    Tell me again
    When I’m clean and I’m sober
    Tell me again
    When I’ve seen through the horror
    Tell me again
    Tell me over and over
    Tell me that you want me then

    Amen
    Amen
    Amen
    Amen

    Tell me again
    When the victims are singing
    And the laws of remorse are restored
    Tell me again
    That you know what I’m thinking
    But vengeance belongs to the Lord
    Tell me again
    When I’m clean and I’m sober
    Tell me again
    When I’ve seen through the horror
    Tell me again
    Tell me over and over
    Tell me that you love me then

    Amen
    Amen
    Amen
    Amen

    Tell me again
    When the day has been ransomed
    And the night has no right to begin
    Try me again
    When the angels are panting
    And scratching at the door to come in
    Tell me again
    When I’m clean and I’m sober
    Tell me again
    When I’ve seen through the horror
    Tell me again
    Tell me over and over
    Tell me that you need me then

    Amen
    Amen
    Amen
    Amen

    Tell me again
    When the filth of the butcher
    Is washed in the blood of the lamb
    Tell me again
    When the rest of the culture
    Has passed through the eye of the camp
    Tell me again
    When I’m clean and I’m sober
    Tell me again
    When I’ve seen through the horror
    Tell me again
    Tell me over and over
    Tell me that you love me then

    Amen
    Amen
    Amen
