lyrics

To you men
I offer my children's lives.
Do to them what you like
so I remain devout.

Daughters, yes,
I admit that it may hurt -
but you're doing the good lord's work
and will get your reward!

Angels, please
see that I have done my best.
I offered forth the lives worth less
to do the work of God.

Lord, please
won't you spare my wife at least.
My children they won't speak to me,
and she is turned to salt.

Years go by.
We fled to the mountainside
to hide from any who survived
and await out time to die.

Pain recedes;
my young begin to speak to me.
They worry that our family tree
withers in this cave with them.

They form their plan:
they mean to get me drunk on wine;
for each to know me for one night;
to carry on the line.

Now I am old
with sons by my daughters both,
to carry on my uncle's oath,
so I'll get my reward.
