lyrics

There's a lot of people in this world that claim they're truly righteous
But when they were young they were always truants of Sunday school
As I come down from the mountain, I see dying all around
Not of earthly form but death of spirit
It's like Sodom and Gomorrah
All over again
Can't believe my own hometown
So tainted in sin
Yeah, you all fucking need Jesus
You all fucking need God
The high from the Holy Spirit's
Stronger than that shitty coke you're on

Don't be fooled
Even roses have thorns
Just like the love of a whore gives sores
And the valiant knight with blood on his sword
Through my sins, I pray I may walk with the Lord
(Amen!)

And you'll never find your spirit in a bottle of spirits, child
By now you should know this very well
Stick with the wine and the herbs and what comes from the Earth
But remember excess is a gold ticket to Hell
Don't stick your phallus in the chalice unless you're married in spirit
Legal documentation's a new thing, you don't need it
Just make sure your love is true
That's what the Lord wants you to do
These are my contemporary commandments to you
Perceive them how they are perceived by you
And most of all

Don't be fooled
Even roses have thorns
Just like the love of a whore gives sores
And the valiant knight with blood on his sword
Through my sins, I pray I may walk with the Lord
(Amen!)

(Hallelujah! (x4))

I am a vampyre (I am a vampyre)
For the blood of Jesus
I am a vampyre (I am a vampyre)
For the blood of the lamb
(x2)

Don't be fooled
Even roses have thorns
