We were speeding together down the dark avenues
But besides all the stardom, all we got was blues
But through all the sorrow, we've been riding high
And the truth of the matter is, I never let you go, let you go
We were scanning the cities, rocking to pay their dues
But besides all the glamor, all we got was bruised
But through all the sorrow, we've been riding high
And the truth of the matter is, I never let you go, let you go

You go down just like Holy Mary, Mary on a, Mary on a cross
Not just another bloody Mary, Mary on a, Mary on a cross
If you choose to run away with me, I will tickle you internally
And I see nothing wrong with that

We were searching for reasons to play by the rules
But we quickly found it was just for fools
Now through all the sorrow, we'll be riding high
And the truth of the matter is, I never let you go, let you go

You go down just like Holy Mary, Mary on a, Mary on a cross
Not just another bloody Mary, Mary on a, Mary on a

You go down just like Holy Mary, Mary on a, Mary on a cross
Your beauty never, ever scared me, Mary on a, Mary on a cross
If you choose to run away with me, I will tickle you internally
And I see nothing wrong with that (nothing wrong with that)

(Mary on a, Mary on a cross) nothing wrong with that
(Mary on a, Mary on a cross) nothing wrong with that
Nothing wrong with that (Mary on a, Mary on a cross)
(Mary on a) Mary on a cross

    My InterpretationSeems like this a confession from Papa Zero about how he still loves Sister Imperator despite her keeping him at a distance. I'm assuming due to the event in the Kiss the Go-Goat video where Papa kissed the fan while Sister watched from the balcony, they were either in a relationship and split, Papa wasn't ready to commit, or Sister was just a very jealous business partner who had a crush on him.

    General CommentI’m hearing the Papa theme but also seeing Mary on a bondage cross. The first verse seems to strongly imply this. And the “Mary on a” actually a play on words as “Mary honour.”

    My InterpretationIs it possible this song is referring to someone who died? \n-> "You go down just like holy Mary" ->Well, holy Mary is long dead. "Go down" could be a play on words, meant to sound like a sexual reference but really referring to a death. A play on words that is both oh-so-blasphemous and yet gets at the point, which brings us to...\n-> "Mary on a cross" -> Only one thing happens to people on a cross - They die. A possible reference to someone who the writer found saintly in life but was killed unjustly\n-> "Not just another bloody Mary" -> Clearly pointing out again that the writer is comparing the individual in question to Mary the so-called saint. As a person who grew up with a catholic family, I know that Mary is pretty much every catholic girls\' first name, though they will go by one of their other given names, especially if you go back a few years. So if you said, "Not just another Mary", you could be saying "Not just another girl". If you said "Not just another bloody Mary", you could be saying not just another dead girl. \n->"If you choose to run away with me etc" Could be saying that had this person chosen to follow the writer, he would have seduced them, but that would be preferable to the alternative, which was that they died. A plausible scenario would be that the writer asked the person to stick around rather than get in a car with a drunk driver, have some sex and call it a night, but the person chose to go with the drunk and got killed in an accident. Could be that the person had a very good reason to go with the drunk, could be that the person just had a lot of good reasons not to stick with the writer. \nCould be that RiverStyxGhoul is 100% correct, I don\'t know the history of the band. But I think this is a reasonable interpretation and honestly, it\'s what I hear when I listen to this song. If taken the way I have presented it, it is full of the darkest of humour and most blasphemous of metaphors which is exactly what I would expect from Ghost. Anyone out there who has some insight please respond!
