Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Canto I: Body of Christ (Corpus Christi)
Forgive her
For she knows
Not what she does...

A cross upon her bedroom wall
From grace she will fall
An image burning in her mind
And between her thighs

A dying God-man full of pain
When will you cum again?

Before him beg to serve or please
On your back or knees

There's no forgiveness for her sins
Prefers punishment?

Would you suffer eternally
Or internally?

Ah

For her lust
She'll burn in hell
Her soul done medium well

All through mass manual stimulation
Salvation

Corpus Christi
She needs
Corpus Christi
Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi
She needs
Corpus Christi
Corpus Christi

Body of Christ
She needs
Body of Christ
Body of Christ

Canto II: To Love God
She'd like to know God
Love God

Feel her God
Inside of her - deep inside of her

She'd like to know God
Love God

Feel, feel, feel
Her God
Inside of her
Deep inside of her

Inside of her
Deep inside of her

Canto III: Jesus Christ Looks Like Me
Jesus Christ looks like me
Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ looks like me
Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ looks like me
Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ looks like me
Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ looks like me
Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ looks like me
Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ looks like me
Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ looks like me
Jesus Christ
