One More Time

Mama's in the bathroom
Waitin' to be saved
Papa's in the bedroom
Just diggin' up his grave
Brother's in the kitchen
Playin' with a knife
Sister's in the attic
Just laughin' at her life

[Chorus:]
And it's one more time
All the grapes are on the vine
And I'm gonna take what's mine
One more time

Everybody's nervous
The window shades are down
Angels flutter up above
The flame where love is found

Sit down at the table
Say a little grace
Put on your dark glasses
And try to find your place

[Chorus]

Crawlin' up the stairs
Cause I know your love is there

You don't have to tell me
All that I've done wrong
It wakes me up at night
And keeps me up the whole night long

But sooner or later
Everything's the same
And everybody's guilty
Of the pleasure and the pain

[Chorus]

Diggin' down deep
Baby please don't fall asleep

[Chorus 4x]
