She saw the Christians in my future
She saw the victims from my past
She saw the children I’ve abandoned
Still dripping from their bathes

I’ve heard the waitress from the coffee shop
At the edge of the universe
Tricks rich men into being slaves
And keeps their fortunes in her purse

Take the hands that come to feed her
Take the tongues that aim to please her
Take the choir in her flesh that sinks
I’ve come to break you down

And I know
In my heart
I will not see her again
Or the danger
Of her alibis

As I followed her back home
The little of what she knew of me
She scrawled into a poem

She speaks freely in a palor
cuts her absenth down with dirt
she says someday son you’ll meet up with
all those you have hurt

and I know
in my heart
I will not see her again
As the patrons from the coffee shop
Threatens strikes and rogue parades
Claiming they have all given more than
Anyone should give away

Hide in the alleys to do their slaying
Kneel in the streets to be seen praying
But the waitress you’ve ignored till now
To see all you have done


She saw the Christians in my future
She saw the victims from my past
She saw the children I’ve abandoned
Still dripping from their bathes

Take the hands that come to feed her
Take the tongues that aim to please her
Take the choir in her flesh that sinks
I will to break you down

And I know
In my heart
There is nothing left to hurt
But the waitress at the edge of the universe

But the waitress at the edge of the universe…
But the waitress at the edge of the universe café…
