lyrics

Better to have been a baby seal
Thank an unborn living baby human
Baby shoulda been a seal
Now he’s dead like the 17000000

O Lord have mercy on me
Wondrously You have formed me
You knew us all before we were born
And we holocaust aaway and beat up our sons

Better to have been a soldier
With a gun to fight your killers
That’s all she wrote as the needle comes in
God’s mysterious wonder turns to collagen

But they’re coming back triumphant
