The Pimp & The Priest

This song is by The Dear Hunter and appears on the album Act 1: The Lake South, The River North (2006).

Take me to the river.

The pimp and the priest pounce on quickened cat's feet
For the freshest young blood, innocence for the feast
The book will then brew what the sinful commit
While the pimp and priest pray quietly where the precious sinners it.

Confess, oh, confess
In the chapel, the brothel, where we suffocate stress
We've got the time if you've got the scratch
Conquer your sins while she screams on her back.

Faster, save me
While your sins remain hostage
Harder, I can't breathe.

Now the priest and the pimp are already equipped
With an enigmatic frontage post we welcome walk-ins
So we corner our pace and make quick for the door
To be prodded and passed from the bed to the floor.

Confess, oh, confess
In the chapel, the brothel, where we suffocate stress
We've got the time if you've got the scratch
Conquer your sins while she screams on her back.

Take me to the river
Take me to the river.

Faster, save me
Sins remain hostage
Harder, I can't breathe.

Sing softly, sing me to the lake
Sing softly, bring me to the lake.

Faster, save me
I've since remained hostage
Harder, I can't breathe.

Sing softly, sing me to the lake
Sing softly, bring me to the lake.
