Mansun – The Holy Blood & The Holy Grail lyrics

The cup that caught your blood was stained
Destroyed, taken away, away
Your likeness hidden from the crowd
Who cried only in shame, in shame

And he claimed to be messiah
And his lies were thinly veiled
Born without a human father
Jesus saves...

(he saves for us) you're playing God for just one minute
(he saves for us) let fame legitimise your face
(he saves for us) you're playing God for just one day

You gave holy blood to spare,
You said, holy fake, holy fake
Fake messiah's in the place
Ouija board and snakes, and snakes
