Blood Of The Lamb

Born to die, oh aren't we all?
But she was more than most
A baby's yell as the towers fell
That caught the holy ghost
He turned his eye and with a sign
Proclaimed that she was marked
He'd see her soon when earth's full moon
Returned in shades too dark

Blood of the lamb still on our hands
Wipe it clean ‘til those who can't stand
Will fall

Raised on glocks and cattle stocks
That ushered in her knot
To eat and pray and love the way
That ‘righteous folks’ were taught
But how could she untangle free, from what was yet to come?
An angry man, an angry plan
And pure delirium

Blood of the lamb…

Close your eyes and hear the cries
That echo in sunlight
A giggle, grin, then from within
A gasp that brought on night
She's almost ten and without sin
But that would not prevail
‘Cause the ghost returned, could not be spurned
And claimed the marked and frail

Blood of the lamb…
