Both Crosses Lyrics

She says sometimes
she sees these things
right before they’re happening…

“Hail Mary, full of grace.”
Some nights,
she swears she feels her face.
She’s known a couple boys that died,
and two of them were crucified.
And the last one had enlightened eyes,
but the first guy, he was Jesus Christ.
Hey, Judas, I know you made a grave mistake.
Hey, Peter, you been pretty sweet,
since Easter break.

Now, she’s 4:00 A.M.
and she’s wide awake,
an’ she’s shiverin’ and smilin’.
Let’s clutch and kiss;
we sing and shake.
Tonight, let’s try to levitate.
You Catholic girls,
you start much too late.
Baby, let’s transverberate.
Baby, let’s transverberate.
Baby, let’s transverberate.

And she saw all the footage,
right before it got cut.
And she saw all the bodies,
and she saw the blood.
She saw the angel
put a sword in his side,
and, baby, that’s how we got canonized.
She saw him gushing blood,
right before it got cut.
She saw him put a body
in a bag in the trunk;
she saw the guys coming in,
from the sides.
And, baby, that’s how we get energized.

She said, “You know I’m down to pay for it.”
She said, “Just grab me some indulgences,
cuz I been mostly dyin’,
and I been mostly coughin’,
and I been mostly cryin’…
and I been thinkin’ ‘bout both crosses...”

She saw the film
right before it came out,
and at first she thought Judas
might go for the mouth.
And she saw the nails,
and she saw the hands.
She said the crowd cheered the band.
And the new kid begged ‘em not to do it,
and Jesus just said,
“Hey, I still love you, Judas.”

Since you been up in Massachusetts,
I been dreamin’ ‘bout dos cruces.
And I been thinkin’ ‘bout both crosses.
And I been dreamin’ ‘bout dos cruces.
Yeah, I been thinkin’ ‘bout both crosses…
