Momus – Protestant Art lyrics

No more decoration
No more piss Christs
Or donkey shit virgins
In the next life
No more tax on hard-working citizens
To finance these abominations

O the shakers from Shakerville are here
Quakers and puritans appear
Smiting Sodomites with a mighty rod
Bringing Protestant art direct from God

A gallery like a church
Woods of pine and birch
A protestant artist is at work
Improving minds
And through the wood
An icy wind whistles through the pines

The lord is coming down now, we must show
How we've been investing, if we've reached his goals
You never know tomorrow may be your tax control
The Lord is an accountant, an accountant of souls
Don't practice deceit, keep your receipts, keep your
Receipts

For the shakers from Shakerville are here
Quakers and puritans appear
Smiting Sodomites with a mighty rod
Bringing Protestant art direct from God

The seamstress is making a little girl's dress
She stitches the seams with little grey threads
Frigid and severe, she sits and sighs
She's got a grey room, she's got grey eyes

O the shakers from Shakerville are here
Quakers and puritans appear
With a righteous heart they go before
To bring Sodomites and art within God's law

Oh the shakers from Shakerville are here
Quakers and puritans appear
Spouting gibberish at Sodomites they meet
Righteous with the arrogance of the meek

Are you justified, are you qualified
What's your salary, will you pass the gates of God's
Great art gallery when you've died
I've seen what's in your diary
Can you honestly tell me you are perfectly normal?

The lord is coming down but I don't care
You'll never break my spirit, you'll never raise my
Hair
Human creativity is all right by me
Ron Athey, Chris Offili, Karen Finlay

But the shakers from Shakerville are here
Quakers and puritans appear
Invincible for God is at their side
Their maker, art critic and guide

Oh the puritans are marching bravely on
Keeping America strong
Smiting Sodomites with a mighty rod
Bringing Protestant art direct from God
Invincible for God is at their side
