"Christian Woman" is a song by Type O Negative, included on the third album Bloody Kisses, released in 1993. It is the band's landmark song that propelled Type O Negative into mainstream popularity. It has '80s new wave edge. The song is about a Christian woman complicating her thoughts about God. Pete Steele told Revolver, "[Christian woman] would get off on breaking the rules a little bit. She would ask me to dress up as a priest and, well, I guess you can just imagine what would happen after that. So, I guess you could say I have a bit of a priest infection."
This song is split into three cantos. The first canto, "Body of Christ (Corpus Christi)", is a radio hit and the only canto played on the single. The second canto, "To Love God", features sitar and tambura. The third canto, "Jesus Christ Looks Like Me", features the use of cowbells. The title of the third canto is taken from the title of the supposed third Carnivore album that didn't happen.
There is an official music video for this song.
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
