It goes ashes to ashes
From dawn 'til dusk
I am drowning in rivers
And oceans of lust

Oh, sweet mother of god
Whose side are you on?
Oh, sweet mother of pearl
I will kill that goddamn girl

And it's driving me to drink
And it's causing me to think
You're not alone

So where did you go
You're breathing so and so
Where the hell have you gone
I've been asleep on your front lawn

Ah, pick up your phone
I know you hiding there at home
And come on stop, stop your crying
'cause I know that you've been lying to me

And it's driving me to drink
and it's causing me to think
you're not alone

I would lay you down
Upon fields of green
Under the biggest sky
That you've ever seen

Que linda madre de dios,
How the hell can you just leave us
Oh, sweet mother of pearl
won't you give me back my girl

And it's driving me to drink
And it's causing me to think
You're not alone
Alone...

    General CommentDoes anyone know what the spanish lyrics are for sure? I know it's "madre de dios", but I'm not sure about "que linda." Every site says (SPANISH) which is laame.

    General CommentYou are translating the line too literally. When you start a pharse in Spanish with "que" it is usually an exclamation, like "Que bonito!....How beautiful!"
    The Spanish line in the song is like "Holy Mother of God", or like the English line in the song "Sweet Mother of God."
