God and Goddess on a silver screen Archetype lovers in a perfect dream We love'em, we leave'em forever clean Then a dirty little secret spoils everything
Chorus: Let the virgin fall, let the virgin fall Let the virgin fall, let the virgin fall
Saint at the alter on a T.V. set He's walkin' on water and he don't get wet The idolaters say that he's the holiest yet He calls his mistress Venus Says she's teacher's perfect pet, gotta let...
He was the leader of the people in the land of the free A myth we kept deep frozen in a tragedy But now we know he never was much of a deity And believing in him is harder than it used to be

Father's dark desires and mother's drastic lies The kids don't really talk to them or look them in the eyes Behind the graven images in the back of their disguise They are the fallen architects of a failing enterprise
