I awoke in the middle of the most amazing dream
When I found myself back in the place where the old ideals are screens
On a pew made of concrete my brothers all I see
From the lullaby of Hell the preacher spit these words at me

Let all the earth fear the Lord and tremble at His name
Rain the brimstone down on Sodom douse Gomorrah in His flames
And of the sin that got forgiven there if few have ever said
Pray the Holy Ghost will clamp the tongue and keep you waiting for the dead


And while his song's still singing the smallest flash it caught me eye
of a lady-beetle flying and landed on my thigh
Watched it crawl up my limp body till she rested by my ear
As a Vicar's voice was roaring and raised a song for me to hear

Fear not the lightning nor the thunder
Nor the skies nor the seas
This song is always singing known to eternity
Take my shell for your protection
See my wings that you may fly
Bring the joy back in your living
To be born we all must die



With another flash of lightning she ripped me out my seat
While the old men raise a new song in the hopes I would retreat
But I scurried down and I danced around my sister's dreaming feet
Fourty steps I took across the lake when a shepherd rose to me

Go past the East and past the West
Further North then further South
Where the bones will turn to powder
And the dust will dry your mouth
There's a treasure that's worth seeking
Many secrets you have seen
Oh my lamb went to the slaughter
Take this break as your keep


There is no Holy Ghost
There is no Holy Ghost
There is no Holy Ghost - Holy Ghost inside of me
