Take Pity On The Beast

TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
YOU GOTTA TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
MAN LIVES HIS LIFE ON THE LEASH
TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST

TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
YOU GOTTA TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
TIL HIS BURDEN IS COMPLETE
TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST

I WAS WALKING (MY DOG) IN THE GARDENS
THE DAY RISING UP WITH THE SUN
A WELL DRESSED MAN IN LEATHER TOLD ME
I AM THE SON
I AM THE SON OF GOD, THE MESSIAH
AND I SEE EVERYTHING YOU DONE WRONG
BEFORE YOU IS REDEMPTION
THEN HE BLESSED ME AND WAS GONE

TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
YOU GOTTA TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
IT’S ALWAYS FAMINE NEVER FEAST
TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST

TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
YOU GOTTA TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
UNTIL THE SUN SETS IN THE EAST
TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST

MY GOOD FRIEND HAD A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN
TRUTHS WERE LEAKING OUT OF HER LIKE SHIT
SHE SAID MY WHOLE LIFE‘S A SICKNESS
I AM SICK
I AM SICK AND I’M A LIAR
AND I DRIP SADNESSS EVERYWHERE I GO
I SEE NO LIGHT, NO JOY, NO BEAUTY
THEN SHE SAYS BUT I’M GOING ON WITH THE SHOW

TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
YOU GOTTA TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
ONE DAY SOON HE’LL BE DECEASED
TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST

TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
YOU GOTTA TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
HE’S BEEN ROBBED AND HE’S BEEN FLEECED
TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST

HIS SKIN IS PAPER THIN AND WORN OUT
HIS BLUE EYES ARE VACANT LOTS
AS A YOUNG MAN HE WAS A SURVIVOR
OF THE HOLOCAUST
THE HOLOCAUST WAS HIS COMPANION
A LIFETIME AT HIS SIDE
NOW ALL THAT’S GONE WITH HIS MEMORY
AND ALL HE SAYS IS ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT

TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
YOU GOTTA TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
HE KNOWS ENOUGH TO KNOW HE’S LEAST
TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST

TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
YOU GOTTA TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
WHEN HE’S CRUMPLED AND HE’S CREASED
TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST

I KNOW A MAN WHO DENIES HIS ESSENCE
HE IS A MAN WHO IS NOT AT ONE
WHEN HE SWALLOWS MOODS FROM A BOTTLE
HE IS BLIND DEAF DUMB
BLIND DEAF DUMB TO REASON
CRYING OUT FOR MORE
CHEMICALS AND CRAZY HORMONES
A ONE MAN SELF WAGED WAR

TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
YOU GOTTA TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
IF YOU’RE RABBI OR YOU’RE PRIEST
TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST

TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
YOU GOTTA TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
LIKE A LOVER JUST RELEASED
TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST

WE WERE SLAVES IN THE LAND OF EGYPT
WE WERE DOGS UNDER PHAROAH’S WHIP
‘TIL THE FIRST BORN LAY DYING
AND THE MOUNTAINS SKIPPED
THE MOUNTAINS SKIPPED THE JORDAN TURNED BACKWARDS
THE SEA SAW AND FLED
AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL
TREMBLED AND WEPT

WE LURCH FROM POST TO PILLAR
REPEATING OUR MISTAKES
IN EVERY GENERATION
WE ALL ACHE
WE ALL ACHE FROM OUR DESIRES
FROM ALL OUR MISPLACED TRUST
IN HEROS, GODS AND SCIENCE
BUT STILL WE ARE DUST TO DUST

TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
YOU GOTTA TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
WHATEVER SCARE THEY PREACH
TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST

TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
YOU GOTTA TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
IT’S MILK SWEETER THAN IT’S MEAT
TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST

TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
YOU GOTTA TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
LIFE IS BRUTAL TIL IT’S CEASED
TAKE PITY ON THE BEAST
