The Doomed

Album: Eat the Elephant (2017)
  • Behold a new Christ
    Behold the same old horde
    Gather at the altering
    New beginning, new word

    And the word was death
    And the word was without light
    The new beatitude
    "Good luck, you're on your own"

    Blessed are the fornicates
    May we bend down to be their whores
    Blessed are the rich
    May we labor, deliver them more

    Blessed are the envious
    Bless the slothful, the wrathful, the vain
    Blessed are the gluttonous
    May they feast us to famine and war

    What of the pious, the pure of heart, the peaceful?
    What of the meek, the mourning, and the merciful?
    All doomed
    All doomed

    Behold a new Christ
    Behold the same old horde
    Gather at the altering
    New beginning, new word

    And the word was death
    And the word was without light
    The new beatitude: "Good luck"

    What of the pious, the pure of heart, the peaceful?
    What of the meek, the mourning, and the merciful?
    What of the righteous? What of the charitable?
    What of the truthful, the dutiful, the decent?

    Doomed are the poor
    Doomed are the peaceful
    Doomed are the meek
    Doomed are the merciful

    For the word is now death
    And the word is now without light
    The new beatitude:
    "Fuck the doomed, you're on your own" Writer/s: Maynard James Keenan, William Howerdel
