lyrics

Mother Mary holds her baby
wrapped in elephant skin
feeding him from the bottle
but he will not drink
will not

'You will have this skin forever–
you'll thank me one day'
as the child cries, mother sighs,
raises the bottle to her lips
(raze it up! raze it!)

Return the bottle to the baby
'Wont you suckle just this once?'
whisper in its ear:
'This is milk, my dear..
this is milk!'

but the liquid is clear.
