"Snakes Of Christ" as written by and Danzig....
Time to run, yeah
Time to hide
Holy war in the land of fire
Never tempt the
Wrath of gods
Gonna dance in the death of life
Take the hand
Enter the world
Just remember you will surely die
Never sell
Evil for lies
Gonna give to you the kiss of life

Serpents of the lord
Crawling
To the will of god
Serpents of your lord
Crawling
All evil

Serpent Jesus
Snake of Christ
Nailed to a cross
Of a holy design
Blood to water
Water to wine
Whip the soul 'til a mother cries
Bring it down, baby
Pierce the side
Start the legend with a funeral right
Serpent Jesus
Snake of Christ
Gonna build you
A world of lies

(Serpents of the lord) Serpents of the lord
Crawling
To the will of god
(Serpents of the lord) Serpents of your lord
Crawling
All evil

Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Crawling

Serpent Jesus
Snake of Christ
Nailed to a cross
Of a holy design
Blood to water
Water to wine
Whip the soul 'til a mother cries
Bring it down, baby
Pierce the side
Start the legend with a funeral right
Serpent Jesus
Snake of Christ
Gonna build you
World of lies

(Serpents of the lord) Serpents of the lord
Crawling
To the will of god
(Serpents of the lord) Serpents of the lord
Crawling
All evil, yeah
Yeah

    General CommentTo quote Danzig, "The Catholics and the Baptists have perverted the teachings of Christ. Worshiping their version of Christ could be considered by some to be as bad as worshiping Satan."

    It's not an anti-Jesus song, just anti-religion.

    General Commentinn has a point, and also i think that when alot of songs criticize jesus they realy strike at all of christianity, because the church is the real villan, jesus is dead he cant hurt us as a zombie, the church on the other hand is an everpresent threat, and i think that this song makes that point. that organized religion is a snake that must be beheaded if the world hopes to progress.

    General CommentI can't listen to this song without hearing Scott Weiland singing "I am, I am, I am/ I said I wanna get next to you/ I said I wanna get close to you/ you wouldn't want me have to hurt you too...

    Other than that it's a good song. I agree with damien, though. It seems to be all about the lie that religion is and how nobody really knows for sure what it's from. Think about it. All the original scrolls were lost for hundreds of years before they were found and rewritten into the bible. Who's to say people haven't added to or taken from in those intervening years. Religion is shit.

    General CommentI think this song is just Glenn mocking Jesus and the way he died...But I'm not sure at all. I'd love someone to prove me wrong...I hate the message that this song appears to be giving.

    General CommentThis song is indeed just a calling attention to the contemporary perverion of christs original teachings. This songs is saying that jesus was raped by the mass mentality for their own good, which goes to prove that jesus was just a man. And by the way Satanism has gotten a bad rap, REAL satanists don't do all that cheesy sell-out candlight sacrifice bullshit. Satanism is really Buddhism, with the twist on following outward felings to their fullest extent. Real satanism is a an intellectual version of hedonism and nialism - an experiment of the mind, and totally natural. We are all satanic. There is no heaven or hell. There may be a god but it does not concern itself with the musings of mankind.
