I know the church is a whore, but she's my mother and I love her.
There's not a thing you could say, or price you could pay to make me think any less of her.

I know the only reason your crown stays on your head is because of your horns.
You pretend to be king. You have nightmares for dreams.
You hate the fact I was born.

They want to take my guns away and take me to a place where I can feel safe.
At least that's what they say.
That's just what they say.

But they worship Beelzebub.
That's the one that they love.
Yeah, they worship Beelzebub.
That's the one they love.

Just because you call a rattlesnake a lamb, it doesn't make it less deadly.
I can still see the scales and still hear the tail…
STOP IT!

I know the church is a whore, but she's my mother and I love her.
And now I can see just what it means to see the world with both eyes open.

They want to take my guns away and take me to a place where I can feel safe.
At least that's what they say.
That's just what they say.

But they worship Beelzebub.
That's the one that they love.
Yeah, they worship Beelzebub.
That's the one they love.

You've got an engagement ring shining on your finger.
You're waiting to be married to hell.
You've got an engagement ring shining on your finger.
It's beautiful.
It's beautiful as hell.

Look at all of the beautiful buildings still shattered on the ground.
Now, look at the way the world is ending.
This is the start of the new beginning.

The truth went and told on you. It's chaos outside your mouth.
The truth went and told on you.

But they worship Beelzebub.
That's the one that they love.

It's all crashing down.
