Lyrics

I'm glowing bright, obsidian
Axolotl, amphibian
Un-elemental chemicals
Got me growing six black tentacles

A little nightmarish, a little maudlin
Good golly go get the kid some laudanum!
Salvation's more than I can afford
Who needs The Devil when you've got The Lord?

Oh my soul
Losing control
Who built this heart?
Oh my God.

Now Sister Maggie's coming in fleet-foot
Baby's got a belly full of black soot
I've got the feeling I'd better just stay put
Ah she'll love you better than any real man could

An accidental amphibian
I'm growing giddy as a Gideon
Another head for the chopping board
Who needs The Devil when you've got The Lord?

Oh my soul
Who's in control
Who built this heart?
Oh my God.

Testo

Sono splendente, ossidiana
Axolotl, anfibio
Prodotti chimici non elementari
Mi hai fatto crescere sei tentacoli neri

Un po 'da incubo, un po' sdolcinato
Perbacco, vai a prendere del laudano al ragazzo!
La salvezza è più di quanto posso permettermi
Chi ha bisogno del diavolo quando hai il Signore?

Oh anima mia
Perdere il controllo
Chi ha costruito questo cuore?
Oh mio Dio.

Ora Sorella Maggie sta arrivando a passo svelto
Il bambino ha la pancia piena di fuliggine nera
Ho la sensazione che farei meglio a restare qui
Ah, ti amerà meglio di quanto possa fare un vero uomo

Un anfibio accidentale
Sto diventando stordito come Gideon
Un'altra testa per il tagliere
Chi ha bisogno del diavolo quando hai il Signore?

Oh anima mia
Chi ha il controllo
Chi ha costruito questo cuore?
Oh mio Dio.
