Lyrics[edit]

Seek His face, He'll never let you down.
Worship grace, He'll never let you down.
  • Ah, ah,
    Beautiful is the mother.
    Ah, ah,
    Beautiful is her son.
    • Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabelle
  • In the morning when you finally go
    And the nurse runs in with her head hung low,
    And the cardinal hits the window.
    In the morning in the winter shade,
    On the first of March, on the holiday,
    I thought I saw you breathing.
    • Casimir Pulaski Day
  • If I miss my chance, I didn't even try
    I'm not one to regret Christmas in July.
    • Christmas In July
  • Oh, great intentions,
    Covenant with the imitation
    Have you no conscience?
    I think about it now
    Oh, God of Progress,
    Have you degraded or forgot us?
    Where have your laws gone?
    • Come On! Feel The Illinoise!
  • Did I make you cry
    On Christmas day?
    Did I let you down
    Like every other day?
    Did I make you cry
    On Christmas day?
    Did I let you down
    On Christmas day?
    . . .
    I stay awake at night
    After we have a fight
    I'm writing poems about you
    And they aren't very nice.
    • Did I Make You Cry On Christmas Day? (Well, You Deserved It!)
  • Planes will crash, He'll never let you down.
    So maybe there's a crash coming for the ground,
    Seek His face, He'll never let you down.
    Worship grace, He'll never let you down.
    • God'll Ne'er Let You Down
  • Since it's Christmas, let's be glad
    Even if your life's been bad,
    There are presents to be had.
    • It's Christmas! Let's Be Glad
  • He dressed up like a clown for them
    With his face paint white and red.
    And on his best behavior
    In a dark room on the bed,
    He kissed them all.
  • But in my best behavior, I am really just like him
    Look beneath the floorboards, for the secrets I have hid.
    • John Wayne Gacy, Jr.
  • Oh, I am not quite sleeping.
    Oh, I am fast in bed.
    • The Predatory Wasp Of The Palisades Is Out To Get Us!
  • You gave your body to the lonely,
    They took your clothes.
    You gave up a wife and a family
    You gave your ghost.
    To be alone with me.
    To be alone with me
    You went up on a tree.
    I've never met a man who loved me.
    • To Be Alone With You
  • Thinking Outrageously,
    I Write in Cursive
    • The Predatory Wasp Of The Palisades Is Out To Get Us!
