When I’m gone
All the things that you wanted to be
Better get it on - with me
Baby let it run - like on the waterfront
Gotta show me now - Don’t think you’re gonna know how

I broke my bread - And I fed it to you
Better you than me - But at least I kept the wine
As it infected you - I floated on out - divine righteousness...

When I come
Gonna be all you wanted to be
Never let it run - with me
When you gonna learn - back off a’ this world
Should I show you now - do you remember how it all began?

I broke my bread - And I fed it to you
Better you than me - But at least I kept the wine
As it infected you - I floated on out - divine righteousness...

What you got up there that you don’t get down here
Thinking I don’t see salvation...
Tell me what you see friend
As you judge my sorry soul...

Man, I’m gone
All the things that you wanted to be
Are far gone - they’re with me
Brother, let it run - like on the waterfront
Go on and show yourself
Or are you still just a victim now?

I broke my bread - And I fed it to you
Better you than me - But at least I kept the wine
As it infected you - I floated on out - divine righteousness...
