Show Me the Place

Show me the place where you want your slave to go Show me the place I've forgotten I don't know Show me the place where my head is bendin' low Show me the place where you want your slave to go Show me the place, help me roll away the stone Show me the place, I can't move this thing alone Show me the place where the word became a man Show me the place where the suffering began The troubles came I saved what I could save A thread of light, a particle, a wave But there were chains, so I hastened to behave There were chains, so I loved you like a slave Show me the place where you want your slave to go Show me the place I've forgotten I don't know Show me the place where my head is bendin' low Show me the place where you want your slave to go The troubles came I saved what I could save A thread of light, a particle, a wave But there were chains, so I hastened to behave There were chains, so I loved you like a slave Show me the place Show me the place, help me roll away the stone Show me the place, I can't move this thing alone Show me the place where the word became a man Show me the place where the suffering began
