Virgin Mary on a chain
Has hit me in the mouth again
As we explore the carnal score
Of sacred and profane

Sulky boy won't drink his milk
So mother's breast beneath the silk
Remains untouched it's way too much
Reject all of that ilk

I have to say it makes me wonder
If you are holdin' me
To the same blue flame that you are under
'Coz I feel you scoldin' me

It makes me wonder
(It makes me wonder)
It makes me wonder
(It makes me wonder)

Virgin Mary's in Her way
Hallucinate her face by day
Obscure the view in front of you
It's me here made of clay

You're playin' near that line so thin
Austerity or just give in
To endless appetite
Embrace that white oblivion

I have to say it makes me wonder
If you are holdin' me
(If you are holdin' me)
(If you are holdin' me)
(If you are holdin' me)
To that calm blue flame that you are under
When you are holdin' me
(When you are holdin' me)
(When you are holdin' me)
(When you are holdin' me)

And why so high expectation?
Who could live up to this?
And there's no time now for explanation
Cool as an angels kiss

And I have to say it makes me wonder
If you were holdin' me
(If you were holdin' me)
(If you were holdin' me)
(If you were holdin' me)
To that calm blue flame that you are under
When you were holdin' me
(When you were holdin' me)
(When you were holdin' me)

It makes me wonder
(It makes me wonder)
I could say
(I could say)
It makes me wonder
(It makes me wonder)
I could say
(I could say)
It makes me wonder
(It makes me wonder)
I could say
(I could say)
It makes me wonder
(It makes me wonder)
