Just Once More (for my brothers at DVD)

A chain of different faces,
Calling to eachother
From a poisoned past,
Looking for God,
Seeking to be rocked to sleep
Just once more.

Mother awaits you
In the arms of the angels,
"Everything will be all right, honey."
Just once more.
Please, just once more.

You were a child,
Waiting for the school bus.
"Will I ever come back home?"
To mommy;
To hold you and say,
"Everything is going to be all right."
Until the end of your life.
When you wait for the school bus
Just once more.

Hard lives,
Battered boys,
Once lost; now found
By the Father
Who says,
"Your mother wants you home."
And you will go.
Just once more.

Just once more.
