Lyrics[edit]

Cave:   It is for she that the cherry bleeds
        That the moon is steeped in milk and blood
        That I steal like a robber
        From her altar of love

        O money lender! O clover gender!
        I am the fiend hid in her skirts
        And it's as hot as hell in here
        Coming at her as I am from above         
         
Cave:   Hard on for love
Manson: (Hard on for love)
Cave:   Hard on for love
Manson: (Hard on for love)
Cave:   Hard on for love
Manson: (Hard on for love)
Cave:   Hard on for love
Manson: (Hard on for love)

Cave:   Well, I swear I seen that girl before
        She looked like she walked straight outa the book of Leveticus
        But they can stone me with stones I don't care
        Just as long as I can get a kiss
        From those gypsy lips! Those gypsy lips!

        My aim is to hit this Miss
        And I'm moving in (I'm moving in)
        Coming at her like Lazarus from above

Both:   The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want
        The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want
        And he leadeth me like a lamb to the lips
        Of the mouth of the valley of the shadow of death

        I am his rod and his staff
        I am his scepter and shaft
        And she is heaven and hell
        At whose gates I ain't been delivered
        Well I'm gonna give the gates a shove

Cave:   Hard on for love

Cave:   And her breasts rise and fall
        Her breasts rise and fall
        Her breasts rise and fall
        Her breasts rise and fall
        Her breasts rise and fall
        Her breasts rise and fall
        Her breasts rise and fall
        Her breasts rise and fall

        And just when I'm about to get my hands on her
        Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
        Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
        Just when I'm about to get my hands on her
        You are beautiful! O dove!

        Just when I'm about to get my hands on her

        Her breasts rise and fall
        Her breasts rise and fall
        Her breasts rise and fall
        Her breasts rise and fall
        Her breasts rise and fall
        Her breasts rise and fall
        Her...
