"Hallowed Be My Name" as written by and Neal Smith....
Gather round right now and hear me whisper
The words of the prison, the words of laughter
The lords and the ladies were fixing their hair-dos
Cursing their lovers
cursing the Bible

Hallow-ed by my name
Yelling at fathers
Screaming at mothers
Hallow-ed by my name

Come all you sinners, come now in your glory
And my ears will listen to your dirty stories
You're fighting to go up, 'cause you're on your way down
Cursing their lovers
Cursing the Bible

Hallow-ed by my name
Yelling at fathers
Screaming at mothers
Hallow-ed by my name

Sluts and the hookers have taken your money
The queens are out dancing but now they're not funny
'Cause there goes one walkin' away with your sonny
Cursing their lovers
Cursing the Bible

Hallow-ed by my name
Yelling at fathers
Screaming at mothers
Hallow-ed by my name

    General CommentGreat song from a great album, I think it's about how so many church going christians are both self-righteous and hypocritical, just going to church to keep of a facade of righteousness.

    "The lords and the ladies were fixing their hairdos cursing their lovers cursing the bible"

    This describes a dysfunctional family getting ready for church while arguing amongst themselves and not showing a whole lot of love for each other.

    "yelling at fathers screaming at mothers"

    The child doesn't respect either of his parents because they're not setting the example they claim they are as christians.

    "Sluts and the hookers have taken your money the queens are out dancing but now they're not funny
    'cause there goes one walkin' away with your sonny cursing their lovers cursing the bible"

    The father and mother are both out commiting adultery and not paying attention to their son who is now with a whore.

    "Hallowed be my name"

    Christianity is supposed to be about love towards others and to God, but some are so high on a pedestal that they serve and worship themselves instead.

    My InterpretationBeing the time that it was and the place that it was the song refers to Hollywood, the industry as well as Hollywood the place, particularly Hollywood Blvd.

    Hallow-ed = Holly-wood

    Withthe band playing the clubs in Hollywood at the time the imagery fits.
