Judas Christ Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. The Return of the Son of Nothing (4:59)
The warrior went back to Rome
The nomads settled for solid homes
The crusader returned to heathen
The snake searched for garden of Eden

The manikin went back in her cocoon
And NASA flew back to the moon
The great white returned to the coral reef
As the geisha stepped up on a water lily leaf

Everything was like before
And the pharaohs killed the first born son
Good lord Jesus Christ went back to his whore
The whore went back to Babylon

The pope went back on the dole
And Santa flew back to the northpole
Judas went back to Nazareth
And the president back in his jet

The raven flew back to Hades
And the shemales went back to the eighties
The dandy went back to Perth
And the dead went straight back to birth
2. So Much for Suicide (4:23)
Animated junkies trying hard to be insane
With only water in our veins
You seem to think the planets orbit around you
Then it might be only one thing to do (hooo)

Silly cartoon creatures on cotton boulevard
Playing dead just like a retard
Mama's gonna make all of your nightmares go away
And death can wait ‘til another day

So much for suicide - lots of talk but you never tried
A few pills short of a straight line - waking up still feeling fine

A loudpipe duck and a pink rubber Minni Mouse
A delirium trademark in a Cardhouse
Wish I had your talent for feeling sorry for myself
Wish you dared to jump off that shelf
3. Vote for Love (4:49)
We've been soaked in acid
Always praised the downfall
The sound of cadent wings
It's a wounder we're standing tall
But in the truth of the morning glory
And the fear in our wishing well
We're on to another story

It's about time we all get out and vote for love

We are white zombies
Chained to our own demise
Decades of sleepwalking
No light's shining in our eyes
We've painted all doors Bible black
Vi har aldrig gett oss utan strid
If there's light we'll claim it back

Time to claim it back

[Lyrics and Music by: Johan Edlund]
4. The Truth's for Sale (4:40)
You'd be forgiven for thinking I've got a heart of stone
You'd be forgiven for not picking up the phone
You'd be forgiven for thinking our love isn't true
Did I spend it all on you, did I spend it all on you???

The truth's for sale for just one kiss

And that's how I like it
Yeah, that's how I want it to be

The truth's for sale for just one kiss

You'd be forgiven for not loving me anymore
You'd be forgiven for not opening the door
You'd be forgiven for thinking our love isn't true
Did I spend it all on you, did I spend it all on you???
5. Fireflower (3:47)
You're only but so is the desolate one
You're drowning but so was the first born son
I'll soak you in fire, fill your black holes
And free your soul

Always cold outside
And it's freezing inside
Into the fire we ride

A shortcut out of the white
Until we're stitched to the night
Our faith our light

You're standing still but spinning around the sun
You're flying with your feet still on the ground
You're pray in this world, it's eating you
And that's what I'll do
6. Sumer by Night (2:37)
7. Love is As Good As Soma (6:42)
Love is as good as soma

I wanna crush all bones in you
'Cause I've got nothing better to you
Well, I'm no son of Aquarius
I think the world is too small for both of us

[Chorus:]
Hug me till you drug me, honey
Kiss me till I'm in a coma.
Hug me, honey, snuggly bunny,
Love is as good as soma.
[x2]

And your friends and all your sister too
Let the world spin like the lovers do
Let the angels fly free tonight
For the devil's kiss, the deadly snakebite

[Chorus x2]

Love is as good as soma....
8. Angel Holograms (3:38)
Always learn from history
To be sure you make the same mistakes again
Dig with bare hands or a silver spoon
But never change the masterplan

The face of god
In velvet black
The skies are full of angel holograms

London bridge is burning down
My fifteen minutes seem like fifteen years
As time goes by we slowly rot away
It happens here and now and everywhere
9. Spine (4:05)
It can't get any colder, no sun left, no light
It makes me even stronger, boosts my will to fight
So much undone
Let's get it on
No moral tells me so, there is no wrong no right

It's all that I do
It's all that I say
It's all that I live for
It's my only way

There's no point in waiting when there is no where or when
Blow it all to pieces and then build it up again
It's understood
So far so good
Start it all over and I'll see you there my friend
10. I Am in Love With Myself (4:22)
I am in love with the waking
It is cold but I ain't mistaking
Proud like Mary to be here again
To be here now with my very best friend
Merry go round I'm in love with the waking

And when I disappear
Into the night and out of the fear
Hunting with sword and spear
I am king Lear
Having a love affair
With myself

I rule if you follow
I spit if you swallow

You've been dealt the cards but there's nothing at stake
What is it worth when your limbs begin to shake
King of black hearts in the parliament
A skinny white boy for president
Triumph at hand but still nothing at stake
11. Heaven of High (3:52)
While the rest of you are sleeping safe and sound
I'm on the run I'm on the wing
Climb the ceiling when the walls are falling apart
I'm the one to blame for everything

A substitute for God, a sacred muse
The hell with it, it's just a lame excuse
Everything I ever used I have abused

All I live for is my heaven of high
I'll be there when the sun goes down

Withered Jimsonweed a night on bad speed
This purple haze works in mysterious ways
Wait another day to wash my sins away
In another time, in another place
12. Too Far Gone (4:49)
I've been through all of this a million times before
Seems all my demons got me knocking on hell's door
I know it's too late to regret what I have done
But I still love you like the morning loves the sun

Too far gone to see the light
And I will never ever leave this place alive
Too far gone to see the light
No I will never ever leave this place alive

I guess it's fair to say that this round is on me
Caribbean blue has turned to blackest misery
I've put a velvet cloth on everything we've done
But I still love you like a bullet loves the gun
