Lyrics
Pale Man In Black, ft. Jim Ferrie
2013 Starburst/Jones

When I went to God's sacred heaven, looking for his holy cure
Archangels came to greet me, gracefully offering to make me pure
But the Blessed Virgin Mary, said we're all originals
With just a taste of freedom, climbing primal into will
So to enter the pearly gates, it is you who must atone
Or we'll see you burn forever, eternally alone

I am righteousness
Disease for the pill
I am your absolute solution
A necessary evil if you will

I'm a man of purpose, with a vision and a dream
Strapping sinners down for pleasure, hear their final scream
The only thing that matters as it's tried and become true
Is to silence all the monsters until they're far and few
I'm a man of purpose, with a vision and a dream
Strapping sinners down for pleasure, hear their final scream
The only thing that matters as it's tried and become true
Is to silence all the monsters until they're far and few
I'm a man of purpose, with a vision and a dream
Strapping sinners down for pleasure, hear their final scream
The only thing that matters as it's tried and become true
Is to silence all the monsters until they're far and few

Don't take away my sinning, I passionately professed
It's the only me I know, and a bit rough I'll confess
Grasping upstream for a paddle, stretching promises far too thin
Don't take away the sinner, he's the only me I've been

I am righteousness
Disease for the pill
I am your absolute solution
A necessary evil if you will

I'm a man of purpose, with vision and a dream
Strapping sinners down for pleasure, hear their final scream
The only thing that matters as it's tried and become true
Is to silence all the monsters until they're far and few
I'm a man of purpose, with a vision and a dream
Strapping sinners down for pleasure, hear their final scream
The only thing that matters as it's tried and become true
Is to silence all the monsters until they're far and few
I'm a man of purpose, with a vision and a dream
Strapping sinners down for pleasure, hear their final scream
The only thing that matters as it's tried and become true
Is to silence all the monsters until they're far and few

I am righteousness
Disease for the pill
I am your absolute solution
A necessary evil if you will

I'm a man of purpose, with vision and a dream
Strapping sinners down for pleasure, hear their final scream
The only thing that matters as it's tried and become true
Is to silence all the monsters until they're far and few
I'm a man of purpose, with a vision and a dream
Strapping sinners down for pleasure, hear their final scream
The only thing that matters as it's tried and become true
Is to silence all the monsters until they're far and few

I looked that woman right in the eye
And reminded Mary, hush baby don't cry
I smiled real broadly as if my sincerity were a fact
Then turned around and said...
"I thought so... I guess its time to go back"
