Your mother made you cry
When she told you about the womb
And how people die

Watching over you when you were young
Smiling as you learned to crawl
You don't know her at all

It's a dirty job but they're very suave
Jesus high on wine weeping turpentine
What are they doing in there?
Have they got guns?

Daddy's voice like an intercom
Connected to a hidden room
Where yellow roses bloom

A sacred mountain near Peterborough
Where clouds paint a picture so calm
That they swallowed Mom

It's a dirty job but they're very suave
Jesus high on wine weeping turpentine
What are they doing in there?
Have they got guns?

Make you run up and down the same hill
And they'll break your will

Was it Christmas or Groundhog Day
When your friends turned to shadows
And they dragged you away

Tell nobody that you've been here
Don't breathe a word that's been said
Now there's a scar upon your forehead

It's a dirty job but they're very suave
Jesus high on wine weeping turpentine
What are they doing in there?
Have they got guns?

Whether Mount Pinatubo
Or the threat of God's love
There'll always be something that's raining
Down from above
