Bible VerseEdit

The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. 2 “My lords,” he said, “please turn aside to your servant’s house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning.”

“No,” they answered, “we will spend the night in the square.” NIV Translation

LyricsEdit

The girl who'd been haunting your dreams all your life
The butcher from Brooklyn, the butcher's wife
The girl who kissed you in the seventh grade
Her and all the others lined up behind the gate
The two angels came to Sodom in the evening
When the sun up in the sky was bleeding all over you

And you had your camera
And you had your felt tip
And you had some money 
And you had everything you needed
The two angels came to Sodom in the evening
They saw you coming up the boulevard
The two angels came to Sodom in the evening
When the sun up in the sky was bleeding all over you
