how it ends

the problem with me is that when i'm anxious or disturbed
it's a violent physical reaction
volcanoes in my belly

hold your grandmother's bible to your breast
gonna put it to the test
you want it to be blessed
and in your heart
you know it to be true
you know what you gotta do
they all depend on you

and you already know
yeah, you already know how this will end

there is no escape
from the slave-catchers' songs
for all of the loved ones gone
forever's not so long
and in your soul
they poked a million holes
but you never lettem show
c'mon it's time to go

and
you
already know
yeah, you already know
how this will end

now you've seen his face
and you know that there's a place
in the sun
for all that you've done
for you and your children
no longer shall you need
you always wanted to believe
just ask and you'll receive
beyond your wildest dreams

and
you
already know
yeah, you already know
how this will end

you already know (you already know)
you already know (you already know)
you already love will end
