Holy water on the brain
And I’m losing sleep
Holy bible on the night stand
Next to me
As I’m raped by
Another monkey circus freak
Trying to take my
Indignance away from me
Holy water is rusting me
Bloody murder is the best
I’ve heard her scream
Holy devil in the flesh
Some might believe
And they take thine
Majesty so seriously
It’s the big lies
That are more likely to be believed
Holy water is rusting me
Damn the water if it’s life
You want to drink
Mind your mother if
It makes you feel at ease
As you’re raped by another
Monkey circus freak
It’s the big lies that are
More likely to be believed

“Jesus Christ Pose” by Soundgarden.

Listen to this Song!

Words by Cornell, music by Cameron, Shepherd, Thayill, and Cornell. © 1991 A & M Records.

And you stare at me
In your Jesus Christ pose
Arms held out
Like you’ve been carrying a load
And you swear to me
You don’t want to be my slave
But you’re staring at me
Like I need to be saved
In your Jesus Christ pose
Arms held out
In your Jesus Christ pose
Thorns and shroud
Like it’s the coming of the Lord
And I swear to you
That I would never feed you pain
But you’re staring at me
Like I’m driving the nails
In your Jesus Christ pose
And you stare at me
In your Jesus Christ pose
Arms held out like it’s
The coming of the Lord
And would it pay you more to walk on water
Than to wear a crown of thorns
It wouldn’t pain me more to bury you rich
Than to bury you poor
In your Jesus Christ pose
