Queensryche – Spreading The Disease lyrics

She always brings me what I need
Without I beg and sweat and bleed
When were alone at night
Waiting for the call
She feeds my skin

Sixteen and on the run from home
Found a job in times square
Working live s&m shows
Twenty-five bucks [a fuck]
And johns a happy man
She wipes the filth away
And it's back on the streets again

Spreading the disease
Everybody needs
But no one wants to see

Father william saved her from the streets
She drank the lifeblood from the saviours feet
Shes sister mary now, eyes as cold as ice
He takes her once a week
On the alter like a sacrifice

Spreading the disease
Everybody needs
But no one wants to see

Religion and s** are powerplays
Manipulate the people for the money they pay
Selling skin, selling god
The numbers look the same on their credit cards
Politicians say no to drugs
While we pay for wars in south america

[saudi arabia, on tour]

Fighting fire with empty words
While the banks get fat
And the poor stay poor
And the rich get rich
And the cops get paid
To look away
As the one percent rules america

Spreading the disease
Everybody needs
But no one wants to see
The way society
Keeps spreading the disease
