Track Name: Holy Days (Live at ABC No Rio)
Holy Days

People sit terrified in the back of gypsy cabs
Angel-babies take a ride they know that it can't last
We all know something we shouldn't know
I know, oh Lord, I know

Glowing faces come and hear my testimony
I'll quote you tales of fire and myths of infamy
Come on, sweet sugar, take a hold of me
There is nothing any greater than this mystery
Oh, these are holy days

Put your heart into mine, honey, hear what I say
Life is too short for tomorrow we can only live today
But we're all little children hiding out from daddy's gaze
Forgive me great father I only want to celebrate these holy days

These are my holy days
These are holy days
Track Name: God (Live at ABC No Rio)

Baby $troller got it all sussed
Some do what they can, some do what they must
They pay her with tickets reading in God we trust
Baby's life is a journey
She goes from bust to bust

She bend down for a cigarette
Dropped outside the discothèque
But before she puts it to her shiny lips
She looks up to God and blows him a holy kiss

Yeah! Yeah! God is everywhere!
He's over here
He's over there
Yeah! Yeah!

He's at the window of Baby $troller
Watching her dance for a naked nun
The sister thinks her life is over
But God knows it's just begun

Yeah! Yeah! God is everywhere!
He's over here
He's over there
Yeah! Yeah!
