Track Name: Census Song
and we followed the star over bethlehem
to find the city just swarming with nephilim
and we israelites were afraid of them
we couldn't believe our god had created them

and we said: "god
where is this land that you promised us?"
and we said: "god
where is this saviour you promised us?"

and the people there were so tall
they seemed to stand taller than old jericho's wall
we marched for forty days, all in all
and blew our damn trumpets, but we couldn't make 'em fall

and god said to abraham:
"could you find me a virgin?"
and he said: "god
i tried but i'm still searching

'cause this land has gone to gomorrah
it's no longer suitable for you
or all us here who adore you
you ought to sweep it down the river jordan"

and god said to lot:
"could you find me just one virgin?"
and he said "god
y'know... i'm still searching

cause all the virgins turned to salt
and yeah, they might have looked back, but you can't say it's their fault
they had to watch their city turn to dust
you picked a hell of a time to call a census"
Track Name: Kneelers
so i thought you still and sober
like a catholic mass at midnight
with the kneelers on the kneelers
and the priest all dressed in white

and the stained glass on the ceiling
put new colours into your hair
and made your scars look like they were healing
as we sat in silent prayer

but it turns out i was only
putting robes over your shoulders
you're a bible hollowed out
to hide a gun

what i thought was fear and reverence
was just the congregation sleeping
all rolled up on the kneelers
while the priest just went on preaching

but it turns out i was only
putting robes over your shoulders
you're a bible hollowed out
to hide a gun

but it turns out i was only
putting robes over your naked body
so the next time that i find you
pissed drunk, naked in the tent
with the sacramental whiskey on your breath
when my brothers come to find you
i'll be making jokes behind you
Track Name: Map
lord, could you send me a map
to heaven and back?
could you show us the safest route
that leads us to you?
but please, lord, let us keep
all the treasures we've stored up here

lord, could you send me a map
to heaven and back?
or else rewrite your holy book
just keep in all the good
and leave out all the bad
why didn't you think of that?

why didn't you think of that?
Track Name: Goat
lukewarm, lukewarm, wet and lukewarm
a wind a blows from the south
good kids, drinking on a lake shore
spat out from the mouth

i thought you could save me
but it turns out you're crazy
i thought i could love you
did i try hard enough to?
i don't know

i know you always welcomed your neighbour
with nothing less than love
but tonight as we recline at table
your kids are doing drugs

i thought you could save me
good lord could you blame me?
i thought i could love you
thought i was strong enough to
but i'm not

i cut off my horns with my own knife
and clothed myself in wool
when god returns at the end of this life
i hope he will be fooled

i thought you could save me
but it turns out you're crazy
i thought i could love you
did i try hard enough to?
i don't know
