The object unsoiled is packed ready and waiting,
For the moment of truth in this spiritual mating.
The object unsoiled is packed ready and waiting,
To be owned, to be cherished, to be fucked for the
naming.

The public are shocked by the state of society,
But as for you, you're a breath of purity.
Well, don't give me your morals, they're filth in my
eyes,

You can pack them away with the rest of your lies.
Your painted mask of ugly perfection,
The ring on your finger, the sign of protection,
Is the rape on page 3, is the soldiers obsession,
How well you've been caught to support your
oppresion.

One god. One church. One husband. One wife.
Sordid sequences in brilliant life,
Supports and props and punctuation
To our floewing realities and realisations.
We're talking with words that have been used before
To describe us as goddesses, mothers and whores,
To describe us as women, describe us as men,
To set out the rules of this ludicrous game,
And it's played very carefully, a delicate balance,
A masculine/feminine perfect alliance.
Does the winner take all? What love is in your grasping?
What vision is left and is anyone asking?
What vision is left and is anyone asking?
She's a Berkertex bride. Bride. Bride.

    General CommentI can't believe I'm the first one to comment on this song.
    I just love the way Eve Libertine sings this song.
    I'd say this song is anti-marriage..?

    General CommentI think that it is more general, it's about how people view relationships, how it's been bred into us since birth, and how it's been imbedded into our history. Eve is an inspiring woman. her voice is so haunting as well, it really suits the lyrics of this album, probably my favourite female fronted album I know of.
