lyrics

Who do you say the son of man is? Some say John, Jeremiah, Elijah or Sting.
But who am I? You ask in that sarcastic tone.
I’m the messiah, don’t you know?

Peter stopped at the front gates,
Said “Next to Hades you would look much better.”
We stripped the city made of gold.
We took the keys and sold them for scrap metal.

I bless you, atishoo,
Upon this rock I build a beach house for the clinically insane.
Like you brothers sisters, come on now,
We don’t need that fascist groove thing.

And then he thanked us all for coming,
But told us all that it was far too late.
And it was only nine o’clock, so we called up the Ferry Man,
Hopped in, told him please don’t stop.

-

You had enough now leave us alone.
Take the meat but throw us the bone.
He’s an apostate, preacher, martyr and a cowboy.
Aphrodite would’ve cowered at a written description.

Had enough now leave us alone.
Take the meat but throw us the bone.
He’s an apostate, preacher, martyr and a cowboy.
Aphrodite would’ve cowered at a passport photo.

Righteous, oh how self-righteous
You busy yourselves with your electronic seduction techniques.
Children, take note, confess.
Confess yourselves or face consequence.

Peter stopped at the front gates,
Said “Next to Hades you would look much better.”
We stripped the city made of gold.
We took the keys and sold them for scrap metal.

Righteous, oh how self-righteous
You busy yourselves with your electronic seduction techniques.
Confess yourselves children,
Or face dire consequence.

And then he thanked us all for coming,
But told us all that it was far too late.
And it was only nine o’clock, so we called up the Ferry Man,
Hopped in, told him please don’t stop.
