Lyrics[edit]

 Devil's got a cut -- like a
 slit in a cattle's calf
 dollar-sign snakes
 I'm all in the -- damn
 god-less -- fearless of the
 flood -- or the blood
 of the coming Spring.
 Something is shedding its
 scales -- crying from the
 heat -- of the light
 or the empty shell on the
 stage... -- "And cash is the
 poor man's money.Cash is
 the poor man's money" --
 "And cash is the poor man's
 money.
 Cash is the poor man's
 money"
 
 SO YOU SAY "GOD,"
 AND I SAY, "SAY10"
 YOU SAY, "GOD"
 AND I SAY, "SAY10"
 
 SAY SAY SAY 10
 
 Open your mouth, love
 like a gutted church 
 my goat horns -- are
 napalm trees, and a
 crown of thorns -- is hard
 to swallow. -- You should
 pray now, -- Is it above or
 is it below?
 You should pray now,
 Is it above or is it below?
 
 SO YOU SAY "GOD,"
 AND I SAY, "SAY10"
 SAY SAY SAY10
 
 YOU SAY "GOD"
 AND I SAY, "SAY10"
 SAY SAY SAY 10
 
 Cocaine and Abel
 I don't baptize whores
 I'm a legend -- I'm not a
 fable. Cocaine and Abel
 -- I don't baptize whores
 -- I'm a legend -- I'm not
 a fable. -- Cocaine and Abel
 -- I don't baptize whores
 -- I'm a legend
 I'm not a fable.
 Cocaine and Abel -- I don't
 baptize whores
 I'm a legend -- I'm not a
 fable. You should pray
 now, -- Is it above or is
 it below?
 You should pray now,
 Is it above or is it below?
 
 YOU SAY "GOD,"
 AND I SAY, "SAY10"
 SAY SAY SAY10
 YOU SAY "GOD"
 AND I SAY, "SAY10"
 SAY SAY SAY 10
 SAY SAY SAY 10
 SAY SAY SAY 10

Trivia[edit]

  • The line "something is shedding its scales, crying from the heat of the light," is quite reminiscent of a line from the David Bowie song "Rock 'n' Roll with Me" from his Diamond Dogs album, "while the lizards lay crying in the heat."
  • The line "is it above or is it below" could be a nod to Hermetic Alchemy and The Emerald Tablet. It's opening lines being, "That which is below is like that which is above and that which is above is like that which is below to do the miracles of one only thing."
