lyrics

They come around kissing babies, kissing dollar bills
Never letting on where their mouths have been

All the gods of catalogues sending down their tablets
With new deals on new lines of manufactured habits

Everyone's got everyone convinced there's no other way
Hands all slapping backs on delivery day

Salvation! Salvation!
The god given fall from favor
Clutching to this god bless'd hope of a last minute savior

The soul of the plowboy ain't worth the bill on delivery day
The soul of the housewife (seamstress) ain't worth the bill on delivery day
The souls of our children ain't worth the bill on delivery day
It ain't worth the bill on delivery

All the black kettles and all the black pots
Killed all the chickens for the roosters and the cocks

One by one they marched them down to bow before the crown
While good cops and bad cops tapped their toes to the ticking sound

We're all on the dole, waiting for a fix
Caught on the sharpening edge between the pimps and the tricks

Salvation! Salvation!
The god given fall from favor
Clutching to this god bless'd hope of a last minute savior

Stories that are told by fools with tongues of silver and teeth of gold
Crown the kings and turn the keys with profits false and shiny strings
When all that's done is said aloud there's nothing left to share
It's a Seller's day, (Buyer)
Buyer beware the lawyers making plans, cut and clean with dirty hands
Shake the tree and make it rain a make believe no other way
With eyes of steel and feet of lead they say that nothing's free
So empty out your pockets if you want a place to bleed

Salvation! Salvation!
The god given fall from favor
Clutching to this god bless'd hope of a last minute savior

The soul of the plowboy ain't worth the deal on delivery day
The soul of the housewife (seamstress) ain't worth the deal on delivery day
The souls of our children ain't worth the deal on delivery day
It ain't worth the deal on delivery day
