Here's the lyrics from another from the new Mountain Goats album, "The Life Of The World To Come".
1 John 4:16
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

In the holding tank I built for myself, it's feeding time
and I start to feel afraid 'cause I'm the last one left in line
the endless string of summer storms that led me to today
began one afternoon with you long ago and far away

And someone leads the beast in on his chain
but I know you're thinking of me 'cause it's just about to rain
so I won't be afraid of anything ever again

In the cell that holds my body back the door swings wide
and I feel like someone's lost child as the guards lead me outside
and if the clouds are gathering it's just to point the way
to an afternoon I spent with you when it rained all day

And someone leads the beast in on his chain
but I know you're thinking of me cause it's just about to rain
so I won't be afraid of anything ever again.
The album will be released on October 6th.
