God Had Better Watch His Back
Lyrics by Bill Cerise-Bullock

You're slow to learn and fast asleep
You're hanging high and elbow deep
In blood that's turning black
Well, God had better watch his back

You set the stage and set the type
You turn the page and burn it like
Some half-wit, half-rate hack
Now God had better watch his back

You should be afraid to dream,
It's there we'll come for you
We'll drag you down and strap you in
And there'll be nothing you can do
And everything
You've cut away
Will be repaid! (x5)

You need an end, we shall provide
Your sins await just past the white
We know it's all abstract
But God had better watch his back
