lyrics

There’s a woman that I,
Have known for a long time,
Her mother took her spine,
She invokes Jesus Christ,
She asks him to be kind,
“And please make me a bride,
Or else I must stay inside,
Forever cursed to live my mama’s life.”

Then her Holy Ghost arrives,
Singing some strange music,
Her heart has tried to hide,
As he sings a song from her own mind,
A warm light of some kind,
Trickles down her spine.

And they sing into the soundproofed night,
But by dawn Mother silenced her delight.

I don’t know what the Queen has said,
But I’d prefer you alive not dead.

Your love for me,
Divorces she,
And sets you free,
Don’t tell that Queen,
She’ll poison the trees,
And leave you grasping,
Those balding valleys,
My dear Christine.

She, now a crippled crawling bride,
Advances the hill side,
To watch her big star rise,
She in the blackness of the night,
Takes comfort in the white, warm electric light,
That beams a vision of her that she has come to desire,
A stunning scene that leaves both friends and foes to admire,
Still, in her heart there sparks an angry wild fire,
That grows and feeds upon those burning trees,
Her pyre.

I don’t know what the Queen has said,
But I would prefer you alive not dead.
