Census Song 04:34
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"

Kneelers 03:20
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

Map 03:47
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?

Goat 04:34
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
