She always brings me what I need
Without I beg and sweat and bleed
When we're alone at night
And waiting for the call, she feeds my skin

Sixteen and on the run from home
Found a job in Times Square working Live S and M shows
Twenty-five bucks a fuck and John's a happy man
She wipes the filth away and it's back on the streets again

Spreading the disease
Everybody needs
But no one wants to see

Father William saved her from the streets
She drank the lifeblood from the savior's feet
She's Sister Mary now, eyes as cold as ice
He takes her once a week on the alter like a sacrifice

Spreading the disease
Everybody needs
But no one wants to see

Religion and sex are power plays
Manipulate the people for the money they pay
Selling skin, selling God
The numbers look the same on their credit cards

Politicians say no to drugs
While we pay for wars in South America
Fighting fire with empty words
While the banks get fat

And the poor stay poor
And the rich get rich
And the cops get paid to look away
As the one percent rules America

Spreading the disease
Everybody needs
But no one wants to see
The way society
Keeps spreading the disease

Wilton, Michael Francis / Tate, Geoffery W
