Hail Mary are you full of grace?
The boys will rip you asunder
wipe the tears off your poor vestal face
God wants you to suffer and that really makes me wonder oh no

Lemme tell you bout Saint Augustine
after Cain snuffed his brother
He had to justify the war machine,
we overused the old excuse of cautious snakes and stupid lovers

Praise and pass the ammunition
Ignorance and superstition
Feed the faith in my suspicion
You might be the one who
Fucked up my religion

Daddy likes to have his cash on hand
His Son grew up, became a businessman
So move to Florida, invest in land
And kiss his little finger if you get to meet the holy man

I've an amount with the sundries account that is $666 overdue
And a good case of scotch to be served on the rocks
that I'm building this church on with you
So you don't care for women and don't care for gays
Don't care for poor folks who get in your way
Don't care for logic and don't care for fun
Fuck, you've got money
Let's go buy some guns

Praise and pass the ammunition
Reinvent the inquisition
All add to my deep suspicion
You might be the one who
Fucked up my religion
