[edit] Lyrics

    Sacrifice won't suffice
    Resurrection needs your death
    To happen twice
    Fall on my heart
    And burn and forge
    Your tortured black-smitten
    Into the sharpest fucking sword


    Don't assume that I'm always with you
    It's just where my mortal body happens to be


    No Sineater to slay
    Us Children of Cain
    Watching monkey suicide,
    Sunday AIDS and church wine wash it away


    Christ consciousness
    Manifest to the Golden Ratio
    5 or 500 years ago
    We were 15 foot high
    And to die
    Was a Bardot Bridge(t)
    We never thought we'd cross
    To burn down behind and below


    No Sineater to slay
    Us Children of Cain
    Watching monkey suicide,
    Sunday AIDS and church wine wash it away


    Don't assume that I'm always with you
    It's just where my mortal body happens to be


    So take your little black book
    I see the way that you look into it
    I'll eat it and I'll cut my tongue
    And all the pages you spread,
    'Sweet as honey,' you said
    But I'm choking on your bitter stories


    No Sineater to slay
    Us Children of Cain
    Watching monkey suicide,
    Sunday AIDS and church wine wash it away
    Sunday AIDS and church wine wash it away
