Oh, and God just leave that Abraham alone
He wants a son, he wants a son
Everybody wants a home

Though I'm not quite sure if poor Isaac would agree
My God, he said what did I do
To make you want to watch me bleed

And I feel sick tonight
I feel just like
The dancing flame of a funeral light
And I'm not sure if I want you to save me

And I'd be less uptight
If I knew the sight
Of blood was just a weakness
And not the whole reason that you made me
'Cause sometimes I think it is

Oh, and God just go and leave me all alone
I'm not your son, I'm not your son
Everybody dies alone

Was this world just not quite hard enough for you
I guess like anyone, you've got
Your own scores to settle too

And I'm so pissed tonight
I feel just like
The last remaining Canaanite
And I don't think that I will be returning

And if you want to see the irony
And the savage price of piety
There's a lot of us who are going to be burning
How does it feel?

And the sorrow that I know when I'm alone I can't express
All these darling angels singing in my ear
And the comfort of their touch, it cuts right through this emptiness
And it's everything I want
And everything I fear

Well, I don't fear God

And that child was my friend
I spent a long time with his curse
I can feel him trembling beneath his plea

I don't know if there's a water
All I know is there's a thirst
And it might be for the best
But I'm not quite sure if Isaac would agree
