Amen Lyrics

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
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'll 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'll 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'll leave me [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'll love me then
Amen
Amen
Amen
Amen
