He wants to be Christlike and never be jealous

So he lets her go on about all the other fellas

But the animal in 'em awakes with a growl

and a skin 'em cannibal scowl

Skin 'em cannibal scowl

And a swing from the trees with his teeth like a chainsaw

Come near me I'll rake off your face with one paw

Watch me now I'm beating my chest like a robber

Who steals from my meat as I rend and slobber

He sits in the plaza in tunic and sandals

Watching her bent over buying the candles

And he thinks he'd like to take her from behind

Would the Scribes and the Pharisees mind?

Scribes and the Pharisees mind

A woman approached me all bent and repentant

I blessed her and set her wherever she went

Will these followers ever stop doggin' me now

That I've thrown off this stone and got loose somehow?

A life that you try to put into a grave

Comes back every Easter to haunt you and save

But my nature is wounded and bloodied and hung

From a cross for my sings and the sings of everyone

oh those sins of everyone.

I'm jealous goddamnit! I'm Christ and I'm jealous

And angry and sad and oh Father please tell us

I'm human and God and I'm animal too

As I listen to her going on about you
