lyrics

Junker George, Bible for a sword
Cut them free from their umbilical chord
That's wrapped around their heads just like a noose
From cast iron pulpits on down to the pews.
Vicar said 'I'm gonna hunt that boar
I'm gonna cut him down with my inquisitors
Cuz' I'm a holy man with a sword in my hand
A coffer in the other, c'mon throw in a coin
And I'll release your fathers, release your brothers
Release your daughters, release my mother.'

Vicar said 'I'm gonna hunt that boar
I'm gonna cut him down with my inquisitors
Cuz' I'm a holy man with a sword in my hand
A coffer in the other, c'mon throw in a coin
And I'll release your fathers, release your brothers
Release your daughters, release my mother.'

Simony and penance, indulgence and your relics
Like downward stairs to the dungeons of despair
For Junker George.

Asphixiated man is the sun and the air
For Junker George.
