lyrics

In my naivete I once did think that inside every heart
Lies an abundance of goodness and light
But that innocence was ripped away, never to return again
When I woke up cold and bruised that fateful night
One brush with you left me believing every man's hiding a demon
Just waiting to devour all that's good
And I am not ashamed to say if I could go back to the day
I could have killed you in your sleep, Lord knows I would

I would baptize you in the water
I would baptize you in the blood
I would baptize you in the name of every woman
Ever haunted by your touch

Oh, I'll look over the Jordan, Lord, and there what will I see?
I'll see a band of angels and they'll be applauding me
With my hands around your neck, you know I'll never break a sweat
And I testify that's the gospel truth
When the bubbles all cease, I will find my sweet release
And the chorus, Lord, they'll sing this victory tune, yeah

I will baptize you in the water
I will baptize you in the blood
I will baptize you in the name of every woman
Ever haunted by your touch

In the name of the father, the son, the holy ghost
In the name of every face ever blackened by your blows
In the name of my sisters, each and every one
Oh, God have mercy on your soul,
Because you know that I'll have none
You know that I'll have none
You know that I'll have none

I will baptize you in the water
I will baptize you in the blood
I will baptize you in the name of every woman
Ever haunted by your touch
