Slow down at the corner where the drugs are bright and clean
In our empty pockets
Huddled in the back seat, trying to find a new way to hide
Maybe this September

I can’t tell the difference between a lie and the way it is
I hope you’ll forgive me for going on like this

Slow down I‘m on fire, I gave myself to the Lord above
In a Pennsylvania farmhouse
Maybe this September I’ll finally come out clean again
But my people keep on dying

I can’t tell the difference between the lost and the left behind
I hope you’ll forgive me, I can’t go on like this

Oh will you take me back into your house?
Oh will you take me and lay me down to bed?

Slow down at the harbor, borrowed car, busted youth
Cops are parked behind us, they might be on to you
Daddy please forgive me, I don’t think I’m born again
I think I’m on fire

I can’t tell the difference between these thoughts and what I am
I can’t tell the difference between the heat and the smoke of it
I can’t tell the difference--what they stole and what I gave away
I hope I’ll forgive you but that seems so far away
