lyrics

You're about to be a dead man
Expect you'll want yourself a cigarette
Take your place here at the altar
Get down on your knees and pray

She is here to read your last rites
Empty out your holy fire
So let this priestess give her sermon
You know the words to say

You will be quite exhausted
Too much life can have it's losses
Get it all back in the next life
Bare feet at the bush will burn

How to live this one life over
Silent song of your electrons
Push negation makes you sober
You eat the peach you learn

You're about to be a dead man
Expect you'll want yourself a cigarette
So take your place here at the altar
Get down on your knees and pray

Let your raiment fall to circles
Mix together til you ferment
Then you'll know that you have earned it
Get down on your knees
Get down on your knees
Get down on your knees and pray
