Birdeatsbaby – Mary lyrics
Hail Mary full of grace
The Lord has put you in your place
Put you where no-one can reach
No hands to touch or words to speak

Have you had your fill of misery?
For the light it falls so far from me
But it’s my sin, there is no shame
I close my eyes, I see the flames

Hail Mary of the earth
They promised you a virgin birth
They take your name and they conspire
To burn you with their holy fire

But if you lead so many to believe
Their death is not a mystery
They’ll bring their arms and bring their guns
For the Lord he speaks but not in tongues

We’re fighting for the rest of us
This sacrifice is not enough
To justify our history
Oh Mary, please come home to me

Hail Mary in your arms
The ashes of a fallen star
You only have to break the spine
For the Lord is good, and he is kind

Have you had your fill of righteousness?
For the light it falls so far from us
If we can’t stop the acts of man
To save ourselves then no-one can
