Lyrics

Twist, you're holy opposition twist

The twisted parts and pieces, this

I guess you'd better think it God

You knew that, easy as it was.


Come on, give me somethin' special

Somethin' I need

Drain the circle

Lay low, and never prove your power

Say so, so I can hear your words


Peel the skin away from my eyes

And look in.

See all the things that you put away

But you are inside.


Listen to me,

Cuz I can hardly exist

Without your little pussy

Give me holy water

I know that you will let me know.

Aah, Ah-oh-aah, Ah-oh-Aah, Ah-oh...Aah.

Standard tuning
