Double-Barrel Prayer
by Diamanda Galás

The dogs have come today
the dogs have come to stay
It's time to get your gun out
And drive the dogs away

They can smell your blood inside
It's loo late lo go and hide
The dogs are' on their way
Prepare yourself today

Glory to God in the highest
and on earth peace to men of good will
We praise thee; we bless thee;
we adore thee; we glorify thee
We give thanks to thee for thy great glory
O lord God, Heavenly King,
God theFather Almighty,
O Lord, the only begotten son, Jesus Christ,
O Lord, lamb of God, son of the Father

The dogs know when you're sleeping
They know when you're awake
How fast your heart is heating
So be ready, or too late

They'll drag you by the collar
And they'll take you through the town
Your friends can help no longer
Once your ass is on the ground

Thou who takest away the sins of the world
have mercy upon and receive our prayer
Thou who sittest at the right hand of the Father,
have mercy upon us
For thou art holy,
thou only art the Lord, thou only Jesus Christ, art most high,
with the holy ghost in the glory of God the Father.

The dogs have come today
The dogs have come to stay
The dogs want you to pay
And this is what I say:

The trick to saying prayers
When the Devil's in the way
Is to help God pull the trigger
On the dogs this Judgment Day

AMEN.
