Self Defense Family – To Your Scattered Bodies Go lyrics
To lie in the sun
To eat the things I want to eat
To know when the day is done
I'll be embraced with a kind of love

To know no grief
To take the right-side seat
At the table of the son

To line the chaff
To lean my troubles on the land
To somehow keep my life intact

I've never been an ungodly man
But my anger in God has proven I am
Any deity who steals from me
Well, he's going to learn firsthand

Grandma died while father was in prison
I remember what he said the day I went to visit:
"I don't pray much son, I'm mad at the lord."
What I didn't know is men bend God to their accord
The day he was released I went to meet him
He wore a smile like it was pinned there
"I'm no longer angry son, I've been forgiven."

I've never been an ungodly man
But my anger in God has proven I am
Any deity who steals from me
Well, he's going to learn firsthand

To lie at the feet
To be some sort of absolved
To know when the night winds creep
I'll find myself chained to a rock

To know only grief
To take that unchecked beating
At the hands of the favored one
To lie in the grave
To push my waist on the sod
Soft skin pops the blade
Organs opened without remorse
To eat from the trough
To keep my life on due course
To keep help underpaid
We'll burn a new house for the boss

I've never been an ungodly man
But my fear of God has proven I am
This deity, he steals from me
At every goddamn chance
