Track Name: New Religion
I want to start a new religion
I want to be part of the system
I don't need anyone but you
I want to be god's first victim
I want the cure, but I want the symptoms
I don't need anyone but you

So call me anything
Call me anything at all
Just hand me the potion of the kitchen
and the cross from the bathroom wall
I'll lead you anywhere
Anywhere you want to go
My mother said I'm the one true saviour
and my mother ought to know

I'll be the light that starts out blinking
The sordid thoughts I know you're thinking
I won't need anyone but you
I'll be the stone that keeps you sinking
Drain out the liquor of the devil's drinking
I won't need anything but you

For I've tasted your footsteps
And I've seen your swinging tongue
I sensed the nail on the wooden floor
before the deed was done
I've seen your beauty
And I've seen your frenzied song
I've known the heart before you birthed it
and I'll know it when it's gone

So call me anything
Call me anything at all
Just hand me the potion of the kitchen
and the cross from the bathroom wall
I'll lead you anywhere
Anywhere you want to go
My mother said I'm the one true saviour
and my mother ought to know
