    Born in sheep's blood plain and simple
    Washed out of my mother's temple
    All around I heard them laughing
    As father sheep had stood there calving

    Black they were, with white eyes gleaming
    Right in heaven life was seeming
    Brittle wind blew snow upon me
    I got blanketed all white and frosty

    In my time I grew and killed them
    Or out of memory I willed them
    And willed in a greater histry
    Out of massacre and mystery

    Was no longer wealthy, woolly
    Nor anything I could grasp fully
    Someone rush to re-inject me
    God of god's, won't you protect me ?

    Fixed my face and marching onward
    Marching running ever forward
    Buildings were a bloody vessel
    Edging me below the trestle

    There in coal and whitened gravel
    I built a shield of wooden baffle
    Inside of which I raised a fire
    So I could tonight retire

    Everyone will tell you it's evil to be
    A free-thinking pecker like bonny old me
    But I'll flex my armies and blow out my gut
    And prove I'll be loved by any old slut

    Look here in my wallet, it's loaded and true
    And now I can leave here and go and find you
