"The Lesson Of Sodom (According To Lot)"

[ from the album "Circus Maximus" (1986) ]

Lyrics

For seventeen days we've lived in this cave
Overlooking the plain with the ruined remains of Gomorra
When the brimstone was sent we were exempt
But the daughters of Salt are tempting

The lesson of Sodom according to God:
You spoil the child if you spare the rod
But we had a problem, me and my girls
I was the only man in the world
The lesson of Sodom according to Lot:
If a bottle of wine is all you've got
Between the salt in your wounds and Lot, girls
The lesson of Sodom is:
"I forgot"

Is it my drunkenness or my first-born's kiss
That makes my second-born's hips sway like there is no tomorrow?
You know drink is a curse and lust is the worst
But the daughters of Salt are thirsting!

The lesson of Sodom according to God:
You spoil the child if you spare the rod
But we had a problem, me and my girls
I was the only man in the world
The lesson of Sodom according to Lot:
If a bottle of wine is all you've got
Between the salt in your wounds and Lot, girls
The lesson of Sodom is:
"I forgot"

With these alibis, a pair of closed eyes and a head full of wine
There's no need to die for your pleasure
Me, I'm getting the best of both worlds in incest
The daughters of Salt - they insist!

The lesson of Sodom according to God:
You spoil the child if you spare the rod
But we had a problem, me and my girls
I was the only man in the world
To put my girls in the way of the world
The lesson of Sodom according to Lot:
If a bottle of wine is all you've got
Between the salt in your wounds and Lot, girls
The lesson of Sodom is:
You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink?
No!
No, no, no, no, no, no, the lesson of Sodom is: A bird in the hand is worth two in the -
No!
Oh, no, no, no, the lesson of Sodom is .....
The lesson of Sodom according to Lot
The lesson of Sodom is .....
I forgot!
