"Little Lord Obedience" as written by and Nicholas Currie....
Faceless when he docks
Faceless when he's lost at sea
The ocean is green, admission is free
Only here, here at the source
There are fingernails & hair to spare
But when the order comes to go & the sirens blow
& the hair goes grey
He obeys, he obeys

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed
Little Lord Obedience
Lays down his sweet, entirely sexless head
Christ found the source of the Bible
& Livingstone the source of the Nile
But the sailor & his amazon
Find the source of the child
In the dock of the baby
The resort where strangers liase
The port in every girl where the sailor obeys

Naked when he docks
Naked when he's lost at sea
There he loses his stripes, there he loses his body
Only here, here at the source
The fashionable dress is flesh
But when the order comes to go & the sirens blow
& the flesh decays
He obeys, he obeys

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed
Little Lord Obedience
Lays down his sweet, entirely sexless head
Christ found the source of the Bible
& Livingstone the source of the Nile
But the sailor & his amazon
Find the source of the child
In the dock of the baby
The resort where strangers liase
The port in every girl where the sailor obeys

No-one when he docks
No-one when he's lost at sea
The waves dissolve his frown, they solve his puzzled face away
Only here, here at the source
No-one comes without leaving someone else
But when the order sounds to go & the sirens blow
& they lower the gangway
We obey, we obey

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed
Little Lord Obedience
Lays down our sweet, entirely sexless heads
Christ found the source of the Bible
& Livingstone the source of the Nile
But the sailor & his amazon
Find the source of the child
In the dock of the baby
The resort where strangers liase
The port in every girl where the sailor obeys
