Oh great teacher
Are you a promise keeper?
It’s time to go son
The work must be done

Oh great father
Would you call for slaughter?
We waited so long
I waited so long

Oh great provider
Have we made you tired?
Am I to blame now?
Am I to blame somehow?

Burning torches
Is this how I worship?
It’s on the way now
The lamb is on the way now

Am I to say how?

All that you hope
All that you know
All that you thought was yours to hold
Burn it alive
Learn to set fire
Learn to fear what you sacrifice

Oh great servant
You have served your purpose
Put your hand down
Put your hand down

Oh great promise
To finish what I started
Is not too much now
To spread our son out

You will not see how

But I swear by myself
I swear to your health
Just as I saw you lay him down
Ram you come out
Ram you come out
Ram would you lay your body down

Oh my father
I see the wood and fire
But where’s your lamb now?
Where’s our lamb now?
