        Who do you think you're kidding
        the blood of the lamb is unforgiving
        I'd rather have the head from the King of Siam
        or the heart of a prince from Pakistan

        Who do you think you're kidding
        this sacrifice is unforgiven
        Next thing kill me a firstborn son
        bring me the cock of a tortured bull
        The hand, the foot, the tongue
        the brain of a man

        Who do you think you're kidding
        the blood of the lamb is unforgiving
        Bring me the ears of a pharaoh's wife
        barbaric love masquerades as hate

        Who do you think you're kidding
        the blood of the lamb is unforgiving
        Blood on the altar, blood on the feet
        blood on the landscape, oh what a creep
        A river of blood is like a river of piss
        to me

        Who do you think you're kidding
        the blood of the lamb is unforgiving
        The tooth of a king, the scalp of a queen
        the light of the stars, the start of a scream

        Who do you think you're kidding
        the blood of the lamb can't be forgiven
        Blood on the hands, blood on the feet
        blood in the alleys, blood in the street
        Blood that won't wash off a river of piss
        to me

        Who do you think you're kidding
        Who do you think you're kidding

        Who do you think you're kidding
        the blood of the lamb can't be forgiven
        Who do you think you're kidding
        who do you think you're kidding
        Just a blood of the lamb
        can't be forgiven
