  • Come on, Come on, Come on
    Kill the rats in the gutter
    Sings the voice in the choir
    Bring your Father and your Mother

    Sing it higher and higher
    Shake the clammy hand
    Repeat the 23rd psalm
    Make you understand

    Where it was you went wrong
    Voices from tapes
    Shouting with twisted tongues
    Emotional rape

    Hell fire scorched lungs
    Come on, Come on, Come on
    Pay close attention to this
    Let me give you something good to eat

    Bite down hard 'til it sticks between your teeth
    Glory, glory we've killed the beast
    Blinded by glittery diamonds
    Resting on crooked fingers

    Shaded eyes they are the ones
    Who'll lead you to your deliverance
    From the figure of doom
    Force you to understand

    Lock you in a room
    With a holy roller and a one man band Writer/s: LUCINDA WILLIAMS
