Dessa The Lamb
You came up from anesthesia
like a diver out of air
Surprised to be alive
startled I was there

It's been a long time
and I've got no axe to grind with you
but goddamnit, man this hatchet
wont stay burried without some sign from you
sign from you
sign, sign

I don't quite come in peace
but times like these ask us
to set aside old grudges
duty calls, I head
but I don't love it
the night nurse leaves
just you and me
you give a look
could freeze gasoline
I don't believe that you're reformed
or you're redeemed

And if they ask me
I'll deny it
but I remember
what you did
while its true you were a young man then
I was just a kid

One of was lying
both of us half-damned
one of us the lion
and one the lamb

You've got a way with words
you got away with murder
but now out roles red
and your tables turning now

Too weak
to lift a spoon i fed you
shaved you when your hands were shaking
dosed you like they told me never more
lord, the demands you're making-
Help the monster on two feet
walk him down the hall, repeat
and when he's strong enough to stand alone
you'll notice what big teeth
But blood is blood
and what's done is done
Yeah, blood is blood
and its burden is a beast

You lie expressionless
face set like the Old Testament
silence always your best defense
I bet you guess I came to settle debts

They tell me you'll get better
I don't know what to say
'Cause they could sew your hands together
but they can't make you pray

And if they ask me
I'll deny it
but I remember
what you did
while its true you were a young man then
I was just a kid

One of was lying
both of us half-damned
one of us the lion
and one the lamb

But now you're careful, now you're good
but do I scare you like I should?
Now you're careful, now you're good
but I still scare you and I should

You've got a way with words
You got away with murder
But now our roles re
and your table's turning now
