Lyrics Edit

Goddamn your righteous hand
I eat innocent meat
The housewife I will beat
The pro-life I will kill
What you won't do, I will
I bash myself to sleep
What you sow, I will reap
I scar myself, you see
I wish I wasn't me
I am the little stick
You stir me into shit
I hate, therefore I am

Goddamn your righteous hand
Goddamn (good, lord), goddamn (good,lord)
Goddamn (good, lord), goddamn (good, lord)

Pseudo-morals work real well
On the talk shows for the weak
But your selective judgments
And good guy badges
Don't mean a fuck to me

I throw a little fit
I slit my teenage wrist
The most that I can learn
Is in records that you burn
Get Your Gunn, Get Your Gunn,
Get Your Gunn, Get Your Gunn

Pseudo-morals work real well
On the talk shows for the weak
But your selective judgments
And good guy badges
Don't mean a fuck to me


Pseudo-morsels work real well
On the talk shows for the weak
But your selective judgments
And good guy badges
Don't mean a fuck to me

I am the VHS
Record me with your fist
You want me to save the world
I'm just a little girl

Pseudo-morals work real well
On the talk shows for the weak
But your selective judgments,
And good guy badges
Don't mean a fuck to me


Pseudo-morsels work real well
On the talk shows for the weak
But your selective judgment
And good guy badges
Don't mean a fuck to me

Get Your Gunn, Get Your Gunn,
Get Your Gunn, Get Your Gunn...
Get
