by Nevada Kerr

Gulp it down, lap it up
The holy shadow gospel
Inside out it's so corrupt
But still you want a mouthful

Consecration confirmation
You must go by the book
And bone up on the object lesson
Before you bait the hook

Draw them in to your conversion
The change will do them good
Ferret out the last perversion
With the help of God you could

In a theocratic nation-state
We'll have none of this or that
You're free to padlock every gate
And rat on every rat

With information at our fingertips
You won't know who to fear
A hot tip from your kissing lips
Was whispered in our ears
