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've been pretty sweet since Easter break

Now she's four a.m. and she's wide awake
She's shivering and smiling
Let's clutch and kiss and sing and shake
And now let's try to levitate
You Catholic girls you stop 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

'Cause I've been mostly dying
And I've been mostly coughing
And I've been mostly crying
And I've been thinking '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 saw the crowd and she heard the band

And the new kid begged them not to do it
And Jesus just said, Hey, I still love you Judas
Since you've been up in Massachusetts
I've been dreaming about dos cruses

And I've been thinking about both crosses
And I've been dreaming about dos cruses
Yeah, I've been thinking about both crosses
