"Bodies" as written by and Glenn Danzig....
bodies please don't cry
bodies please don't die
bodies please don't cry

I been taking all the silver
I been taking all the gold
I'm gonna stuff it down the throat
of a week old corpse
save that doggone soul
I been saving up my pain
I'm gonna give it back in spades
I been strangling the cries
from the murder of love
save your soul tonight

I been raising up the dead
gonna send them to the house of cain
I been praying in light
of the waning moon
slay your doggone soul
I been taken out of heaven
I been put upon this world
I been walking up and down
to and from
save your doggone soul

I got bodies on the left
I got bodies on the right
I got bodies up and down
all across town
save your soul tonight

    General CommentThis reminds me of Smokestack Lightin'...the old Howlin' Wolf song.
    As far as what it's about, I'd say the Devil (or someone who sees themself as the Devil) and he's bragging about all the death he's caused.

    General CommentThis song is about Jesus.
    He was taken out of Heaven and put upon this world to save our souls.
    Danzig's take on that is Matthew 10:34, where Jesus comes with a sword.
    He isn't here to bring peace, but to separate the good from the bad, hence the line "been raising up the dead, gonna send them to the house of cain"

    General CommentJust like "The Hunter" is a 1:1 copy of another Teppelin song i cant remeber the title. But thats O.K. because Zeppelin also used to steal lyrics and music...
