Hey there, Father
I don't wanna bother you
But I've got a sin to confess
I'm just 16 if you know what I mean
Do you mind if I take off my dress?

Don't know where to start
Let me get to the good parts
Might wanna cross up your legs
I've got envy, I've got greed, anything that you need
And I'm not above having to beg
There was this boy who tore my heart in two
I had to lay him eight feet underground

All I need is someone to save me
Cause I am goin' down
And what I need is someone to save me
Cause I am goin' down, all the way down

Well, hey there, Father
There is just one other thing
I have a simple request
I hear you know God could you give him a nod in my direction
I would be in your debt

Perhaps there is something that we could work out
I noticed your breathing is starting to change
We could go in the back behind all these stacks of bibles
And get out of this cage

There was this boy who tore my heart in two
I had to lay him eight feet underground

All I need is someone to save me
Cause I am goin' down
And what I need is someone to save me
Cause God, I'm goin' down, all the way down

I didn't wanna do it, Father
But I caught him with another woman in the bed I made him
So I put him in a grave

And now there's no one left around to get me off
When I want it to drag

The next day on the television they identified him
By the circumsicion that I made and now I'm on the run
But wait, why did I have to go and kill him
When he was the best I'd ever had

All I need is someone to save me
Cause I am goin' down
And what I need is something to save me
Cause God, I'm goin' down, all the way down

I'm goin' down
All the way down
