"Mary Dances In The Shadows (The Holiest Of Harlots)"


Mary dances in the shadows
{Dressed in stockings made of white,}
She provides herself to angels
{Seeking salvage to bear child.}

Mary dances in the sunshine
{She's the mother of the damned,}
She's the mother of delusions
{She's the concubine of man...}

Mary dances in the shadows
{Mary dances all alone,}
Little Mary child of prayers
{Only angels hear you moan.}

Mary dances in the sunshine
{Dressed in stockings made of black,}
Finding cloister in the sacred
{Finding salvage on her back...}

Mary dances in the rainfall
{Playing gently with a rose,}
Dressed nothing but her stockings
{Mary dances all exposed.}

Mary dances for the angels
{She's a puppet turned to queen,}
She's the harlot of the holy
{Only angels hear her sing...}

    General CommentIt's a sacrilegious song. Whenever I hear it I try to give it a positive spin in my mind...Mother Mary hears the sins of others; therefore, she's not the one committing the actual sins. I think the creative Ordo knows one should never speak ill of someone's mother, especially the Mother of God....which is why he does in this song:)
