lyrics

THE MAN WITH THE X RAY EYES

PART I

Who could have imagined that
such a scruffy and stocky guy
would have so many gifts
and extraordinary skills.

It’s believed he was anointed
in the old city of Delphi.
His proud talkative mummy thought
“No hunger anymore”.

“Oh Holy God, You chose me.
I’m one of your best bloody guys.
I will dispense your Justice.
Sorry for all the fools of the world”

The most High gave him a weird gift
just to get rid of him.
The insistence of the chosen one
gave rise to that damned gun.

It’s believed he was endowed
with a power in his eyes
His pleased pig-headed mummy claimed
“You sinners are my shame”

PART II

“Come to me, hopeless of the Earth
I am the true door of the sheep
Just get in my fence
And earn a sheep living

Don’t feel afraid my little lambs
There’s no redemption without blood
You won’t bleed to death
Just a shot for the old friends

I’m ripping my eyes out
So they can lead you to my new Jerusalem
Oh Lord, why did you forsake me? (Oh Lord, why doth thou forsake me?)

This is my offering chant
And my sacrifice for you, tiny, flying worms
You fool, with these chords you betray me”
