When stunted hammers place
With men my mere monstrosity
Alarms are struck I'm sure
I'm sure by sheer atrocity

A cure I know that soothes
The soul, the soul impossibly
A moment's silence when
My baby puts her mouth on

Me and my babe relaxing
Catching manic rhapsody
All reason flown, as God
Looks on in abject apathy

A swollen order means
A prayer in perfect parody
A moment's silence when
My baby puts her mouth on me

When the meaning's gone
There is clarity
And the reason comes
In the common tongue
In you lovin' me

And it's easy, darling
I don't need a remedy
And the reason comes
In the common tongue
In you lovin' me

What yields the need for those who lead us oh so morally
Those that would view the sin we do through their deformity
Who view the deed as power's creed is pure authority
This moment's silence when my baby
Puts her mouth on me

Since it's all been gone
To it's reckoning
Then the reason comes
In the common tongue
In you lovin' me

We begged for some
Now we lovingly
Let the reason come
In the common tongue
In you lovin' me (woo)

Like a heathen clung
To the harmony
Let the reason come
To the common tongue
Of you lovin' me

It's a silent night upon the rosary
Let the reason come
In the common tongue
In you lovin' me

    My InterpretationI feel like most of the lyrics are incorrect so here's the correct version

    When stunted hand earns place
    With men by mere monstrosity
    Alarms are struck and shore is shook
    By sheer atrocity

    A cure I know that soothes the soul
    Does so impossibly
    A moment's silence when
    My baby puts their mouth on

    Me and my babe relax
    And catch the manic rhapsody
    All reason flown as God
    Looks on in abject apathy

    A squall, and all of me is a prayer
    In perfect piety
    A moment's silence when
    My baby puts their mouth on me
    (Woo)

    When the meaning's gone
    There is clarity
    And the reason comes
    On the common tongue
    Of your lovin' me

    And it's easy done
    Our little remedy
    And the reason comes
    On the common tongue
    Of your lovin' me

    What yields the need for those who lead us oh so morally
    Those that would view the same we do through their deformity
    Who view the deed as power's creed as pure authority
    This moment's silence when my baby
    Puts their mouth on me

    Since it all begun
    To it's reckoning
    There the reason comes
    On the common tongue
    Of your lovin' me

    Be thankful some
    Know it lovingly
    There the reason comes
    On the common tongue
    Of your lovin' me
    (Woo)

    Like a heathen clung
    To the homily
    Let the reason come
    On the common tongue
    Of your lovin' me

    So summon on the pearl rosary
    Let the reason come
    On the common tongue
    Of your lovin' me
