Move a little closer,
hear my sordid tale
Bout a man & Jesus
& a trip through to..

Man was sent up river
4 along for the ride
To find this man Jesus
& terminate his hide

Man drift up river
His bible by his side
Reading up on Jesus
Why’d you run & hide?

Man drift for an hour
Man drift for a day
Don’t know what he’ll be doing,
Or what he’s gonna say

Man pulled up to the border
With Jesus on the other side
One final bridge to cross
Then he’s in his eyes

Man pulled up to the shore
A thousand eyes he sees
He says ‘Take me to Jesus’
They say ‘Follow me’

Man walks up to Jesus
He says ‘what did you do wrong?’
Jesus says ‘I don’t know son, but I can’t go on
Y’See I, I can’t sleep at night now,
For the things that I seen,
I just want absolution
Can you give it to me?’

Man looked up at Jesus,
Looked him in his eye
Then he understood nightmares
& he understood lies

Man went down to his boat
Got himself a knife
Then he walked up to Jesus
& set him free

It was the long gone dead of the summer
Between the devil & the deep blue sea
When first they came looking for Jesus
& then they came looking for me
They said ‘You want to be yours?’
I said ‘You want to be mine?’
Well there’s nothing better in between
Well there’s something that you better learn fast here boy
It’s that there’s stuff in here that you’ve never seen..

That’s the story of Jesus & the man
Only the names have been changed
To protect the guilty
