Oh, Babylon the Great, Mother of Harlots, Abomination of the Earth

So I gleefully, willfully folded them blades into my chest
And I pointed my teeth to my heart, I proceeded to gnaw

Oh, when I had a dog he was loyal, but he wasn't handsome
And he laughed like a song when his manners had led him astray.

So I whistled an old one the stars and his name, hope you like that
It was sunny side up, you can call it what you want, but I have never called it that way.

Oh, Babylon the Great, Mother of Harlots, Abomination of the Earth
How many things do you know for sure?
