"Virgin Fall" from Daniel Amos' album "Kalhoun"
train tracks

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

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...

Let the virgin fall, let the virgin fall
Let the virgin fall, let the virgin fall

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

She tried hard to hold on, be his sweet expectation
Then she became herself, it killed the whole relation

Let the virgin fall, let the virgin fall
Let the virgin fall, let the virgin fall

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

Let the virgin fall, let the virgin fall
Let the virgin fall, let the virgin fall
