lyrics

Mind your manners in the presence of the lord
Kneel before him – laugh and consort
A benign indifference – but indifference all the same
Keep us counting corpses and numbering days

Oh, won’t you mind your manners in the presence of the lord
Who is omnipresent – though it’s you in control
Ain’t that the strangest thing, ain’t that just some kind of joke?
But you are not ashamed and you are going for broke

Too many days spent licking at honey
Grew fat off the land and funnelled your money
Into some island paradise that you’ll never call home
But you are just as innocent as the day you were born

If not for blood
It must be for money
If not blood or money
How could it be love?

Follow me into this continent of dreams
Where the living wages are under deep freeze
Within the final vestige of an easier time
I never wanted a future until the children were mine
North America – with its nostalgia on high
Black mass within the windpipe
Blighted and dry
I only want the answers though you promised me more
Elemental truth sold into slavery and whored

Too many days spent licking at honey
Grew fat off the land and funnelled your money
Into some island paradise that you’ll never call home
But you are just as innocent as the day you were born

If not for blood
It must be for money
If not blood or money
How could it be love?
