  • Another Christ is on the cross
    The nails are words
    The nails are lies
    To make it crawl
    And make it scream
    And make it real
    And make it bleed
    And make it bleed
    And make it bleed
    And make it dream
    Imitation of Christ
    Imitation of Christ
    This you who lie and scream
    You fall to dust
    You fall to dust
    In walls of words
    Your words are blind
    You speak and you are dumb and blind
    The word that is your god
    Is you who fall so low and fall so far
    Imitation of Christ
    Imitation of Christ
    Fly to the moon dear
    Sew it on a stool
    Tie on the carpet all the cowboys fall
    See the cowboys fat and reeling
    Dancing underneath the ceiling
    Leave the bar the theatre's closing
    Make a wall of your religion
    Imitation of Christ
    Imitation of Christ
    Mary mary
    Mother mother
    You and me and
    God the father
    Jesus is a woman too
    He looks like all of me and you
    Your money talks and
    All your friends
    Will laugh at her pathetic tits
    Imitation of Christ
    Imitation of Christ
    Imitation of Christ
