There was mud on the doorstep and blood on her sleeve
And the rain it was tapping and dripping from the eves
And her face was a portrait of stone as she breathed
Take what you need, just bring him to me

The lake it was full when the sky tumbled down
And the power went out in every house in the town
Whether dead or alive, no judgement I'll sound
She said bring him to me, boy, go make me proud

My son, be clear
There's no room here
For doubt or fear
Go kill...

By darkness I drifted like a leaf in a stream
Her words dulled my senses but conscience it screamed
I could not return home with hands that were clean
Till they're washed in blood welcome I'd never be

My son, be clear
There's no room here
For doubt or fear
Go kill that man

Cool your blood and clear your head
Our god demands this man be dead
Stay calm, my son, these words you've read
For this eye, one more, so the scripture said

My son, be clear
There's no room here
For doubt or fear
Go kill that man
