There are my hands
And there are my eyes
Clad in high high hills
Impotent
The leper lord
Clad in bloody robes
Jesus wept (x3)
Jesus Jesus
Jesus wept (x3)
Christus christus (x3)
Hear me when I call
On the threshing floor
Jesus wept (x3)
On the threshing floor
My loves
My little friends
My loves
Antichrist
Antichristus
Antichrist
We know who you are
Threshing
On the threshing floor
My loves
Antichrist
Dies irae
Dies illa
We know who you are
Lacrimosae
Jesus
Mea culpa
Jesus wept
Mea culpa
Jesus wept
Have mercy on us
Jesus wept
Between the power
And the glory
Falls the shadow
The shadow falls
Wept
Jesus wept
Life is very short
Jesus wept

(Recorded live at Bar Maldoror on 25 November 1983, the thirteenth anniversary of the death of Japanese writer Mishima Yukio by seppuku - a.k.a. hara-kiri - and beheading.)

    General Comment"Life is very short" is a reference to TS Eliot's "The Hollow Men" in which the opposite sentiment is remarked.

    General CommentI'll add a disturbing little side-note to the lyrics for all of you to mull over....
