A Perfect Circle - "The Doomed"

Recommended Posts

 

First new A Perfect Circle song in basically 13 years. Very powerful song.

 

Quote

 

Behold the new Christ, behold the same old horde.

Gather at the altering, new beginning, new word.

And the word was death. And the word was without light.

The new beatitude- “Good luck, you’re on your own.”

Blessed are the fornicates - may we bend down to be their whores.

Blessed are the rich - may we labor, deliver them more.

Blessed are the envious - bless the slothful, the wrathful, the vain.

Blessed are the gluttonous - may they feast us to famine and war.

What of the pious? The pure of heart? The peaceful?

What of the meek? The mourning, and the merciful?

All doomed… All doomed.

Behold the new Christ, behold the same old horde

Gather at the altering. New beginning, new word.

And the word was death. And the word was without light.

The new beatitude - “Good luck.”

What of the pious? The pure of heart? The peaceful?

What of the meek? The mourning, and the merciful.

What of the righteous? What of the charitable? What of the truthful? The dutiful? The decent?

Doomed are the poor.

Doomed are peaceful.

Doomed are meek.

Doomed are merciful.

For the word is now death. And the word is now without light.

The new beatitude - “Fuuuuuuuuck!

Fuck the New (testament) , you’re on your own!”
