Lyrics[edit]

    God--- your righteous hand
    I eat innocent meat
    The housewife I will beat
    The pro-life I will kill
    What you won't do I will
    I bash myself to sleep
    What you sow I will reap
    I scar myself you see
    I wish I wasn't me
    I am the little stick
    You stir me into ---
    I hate therefore I am
    God--- your righteous hand
    
    God--- (ooh, lord)
    God--- (ooh, lord)
    God--- (ooh, lord)
    God--- (ooh, lord)
    
    Pseudo-morals work real well
    On the talk shows for the weak
    selective judgements
    And goodguy badges
    Don't mean a --- to me
    
    I throw a little fit
    I slit my teenage wrist
    Most I can learn
    Is in records that you burn
    
    Get your Gunn
    Get your Gunn
    Get your Gunn
    Get your Gunn
    
    Pseudo-morals work real well
    On the talk shows for the weak
    Selective judgements
    And goodguy badges
    Don't mean a --- to me
    
    Pseudo-morals work real well
    On the talk shows for the weak
    Selective judgements
    And goodguy badges
    Don't mean a --- to me
    
    Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
    Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no
    Oh no, oh no, oh no
    
    I am the VHS
    record me with your fist
    Want me to save the world
    I'm just a little girl
    
    Pseudo-morals work real well
    On the talk shows for the weak
    Selective judgements
    And goodguy badges
    Don't mean a --- to me
    
    Pseudo-morals work real well
    On the talk shows for the weak
    Selective judgements
    And goodguy badges
    Don't mean a --- to me
    
    Get your Gunn
    Get your Gunn
    Get your Gunn
    Get your Gunn
    Get
