lyrics

Gathered around their vigil
speaking glossolalia
Sacrifice a virgin to honor their strange gods

Business men and oligarchs
gathered around holding hands
Sing the ancient ode for to summon their strange gods

She was not afraid of them
Swaying like seaweed
And as she jumped into the fire I could faintly hear them pray:

Spring is drawing closer now
Winter comes to a welcome end
Grant us much to yield for to save our families

Periwinkle, lavender
Scarlet, vermilion
Colors of their robes signify how far they'll go for their strange gods

Run, run, run
Run, run, run.
