Track Name: One Song
Here's a song
to make it alright
to help you get through
another night
here's a song
to help you survive
and to make you forget
all those tears you're crying

you're a being
you're living on a planet
in a tiny cluster of stars
that's a part of a pattern
that goes on forever
in a universe reaching out
farther
and it's all one song
all one song
uni verse
one song

here's a song
to keep you alive
and to make you forget
when you feel like dying
it's alright, it's alright
and it's okay
you'll get what is coming to you
eventually

you're a being
you're living on a planet
in a tiny cluster of stars
that's a part of a pattern
that goes on forever
in a universe reaching out
farther
and it's all one song
all one song
uni verse
one song
Track Name: Mary Got A Baby
Mary got a baby
and she's only fifteen
and you can't see buddy for dust
strangled in a small town
stuck out like a sore thumb
nowhere to run, nowhere to run
shame for the family
Mary got a secret and the whole
dirty little town knows
Mary thought it was love
buddy thought it was lust
and it was Mary's balloon
that got busted

Mary's old man
just stares at the TV
doesn't look at Mary at all
Mary just shivers
like a lamb in the rain
he begins to face
he slaps her face
Mary's mom's shattered
little baby sister screaming
on the kitchen floor
so Mary runs away
in the middle of the night
cuz she can't stay home and be crucified

she says, "hey everybody
here's a four letter word
and a three letter word for you"

Mary has her baby
in a far away town
nobody makes any fuss
no flowers, no tears
not a friendly face appears
Mary gives the baby up
stares out the window at nothing
for a couple of days
she doesn't see the baby
she doesn't have the heart
and she doesn't go home
and make a brand new start

she says, "hey everybody
here's a four letter word
and a three letter word for you"
Track Name: Johnny
Johnny is a family man
Johnny has made it so far
Johnny got money, he got money
and he got a nice big car
I see him driving downtown
oh he got that look in his eye
he casing every woman around
for something that money can't buy

and she's standing on the corner
she's waiting ther for him
hey john come on, I gotta get on, get on
home

Johnny got a dirty little secret
oh he got a dirty little lie
nobody knows where he keeps it
cuz he got it locked up inside

Johnny got her down on her knees again
see him come and go without a sound
don't he make her work for it
don't he make her, make her
swallow it down

and when the night is over
she's winding her way home
she got his money in her hand
woah

John drives on through the night
oh he never been so alone
lost somewhere between the night
and the light in the window
when he gets home

cuz Johnny is a family man
Johnny has made it so far
Johnny got money, he got money
and he got a nice big car
Track Name: Motherfucker
In the name of the father
in the name of god almighty
you hang on your bloody cross
and lay them out before you
so your hardened eyes resigned
table laden, blood and wine
flows from the veins of humankind
as you gorge on war
war war war war

Up to the top of the mountain
bear your heavy burden
rape and dominate the land
and poison every ocean
god's a fucking palindrome
on your knees you slave to serve him
lost your only way to get home
suffer all your little children
and on and on and on

Hail to the hierophant
hail to the chief
give it all up to the man
his bondage is relief
mothers hide your children well
save them up inside a shell
throw their stunted bodies through
the gaping hole of hell
by all the power
of all I believe
don't let that motherfucker
come down on me
protect my children
from the chains that bound me
wind it wound
nine times around
and so make it be
make it be
make it be

Your holy book of revelation
your holy cock is masturbating
it doesn't take a prophet, baby
to tell me that you're damned
so the scarlet harlot turns
in her celestial prison
and every taunt and stab she spurns
just like she was a virgin

Mother fucker of the mother of the mother fucker of the mother fucker of the mother fucker of the mother fucker of the mother
motherfucker of the mother fucker of the mother fucker of the mother fucker of the mother fucker of the mother fucker of the mother
Motherfucker
Track Name: Complacency Song
Oh she had a diamond
as big as your eye
and she wore it on her middle finger
talk of war around the world
could almost make her cry
when she was looking for a cause
to sign her name to

oh baby baby
don't you know you make me crazy
trying to forget you're middle class
there ain't a mark on your record baby
not a stain on your soul
there ain't a on your lily white ass

She's sitting with her trendy friends
in comfortable cafes
and they're makin such a pretty scene, oh
they're planning their vacations
down to hot and troubled places
while they're sucking back the cappuccino

oh baby baby
don't you know you make me crazy
trying to forget you're middle class
their ain't a mark on your record
not a stain on your soul
there ain't a on your lily white ass

she renounced the vatican
when she was twenty on
but she got them latent catholic blues
acting all aversion when she's looking to get fucked
she makes me wanna ohhhhhhhhhhh

oh baby baby
don't you know you make me crazy
trying to forget you're middle class
their ain't a mark on your record
not a stain on your soul
there ain't a on your lily white ass
Track Name: Queen of Swords
hh she reigns tonight in silence
keeping her secrets, falling to pieces
oh it rains
upon the Lake of Aching
water breaking
filling up her bowl

inside me there's a desert
my heart's become a stone
how hard i cling to my hurt
all my gardens overgrown
my brain is bent on vengeance
my blade so true and sharp
my hand is raised and ready
to pierce your human heart

i have spent the centuries
re-membering, re-membering
i have spent the centuries re-membering
my own my own my own history
this fortress i have built
it is my home
me, by myself alone
i'm waiting til i'm wan
i'm so alone

this is not wisdom
my logic is de-struction
de-struction
is your step by step by step instruction
it's doesn't matter baby
if you're a non-believer
the axe has fallen
see these eyes have cried
a thousand bitter tears
these arms have held every dying child
i gave you the best two thousand years
of my life
i looked into your bloodless eyes
and I named you Liar
fuck the excuses and fuck the guilt
bury the sword right up to the hilt
cuz the truth is a bitch
and I am she
you call me by my rightful name
cuz i can't be contained
i can't be contained

paint the blood upon my face
i gave birth to the entire human race
the time is now
the time is here
i'm raging screaming rage
out into the biosphere
oh, you were all born in blood
you were all born of She
Her pain, Her love, Her desire
only the truth will set you free
I give to you
The Bitch Goddess of Truth
