  • A shot of tequila, I keep walking
    I let it pass that diabolical train
    Yes, I have drunk from that Devil's Bane

    And I barely survived
    Barely got out with my life

    Shame, shame
    He's screamin' at me
    Shame, shame
    Thinkin' I'll let you leave

    Shot of tequila wash me clean
    From his sermons and conspiracies
    And he was good at turning me against me

    Me doubting Venus
    All the while he's preachin'

    Shame, shame
    On your Jezebel breed
    Shame, shame
    You need purifying

    And I barely survived
    Barely got out with my life

    Next train when it comes again
    If it's filled with lies and corruption
    Lord, send it on
    Next train when it comes again
    If He's lookin' for a, a Queen of Poison
    Lord, send it on

    Your soul he's seekin'
    All the while he's preachin'
    Preachin'

    Shame, shame
    On your Jezebel breed
    Shame, shame
    He's screamin' at me
    Shame, shame
    Planting your wicked seed
    Bride of Christ
    Darlin' you'll never be

    Barely got out with my life
    And I keep runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin' still
    And I keep runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin' still
    From that Devil's Bane
    Keep runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin' Writer/s: Tori Ellen Amos
