Glenn Danzig on Motherhood

Glen Danzig is not a preacher, but he has preached a sermon, even if unwittingly.  In his band’s famous song “Mother” Mr.NOJE-28s35DANZIG_368Danzig cries out like the ladies Wisdom and Folly, both to warn and to entice.  If mothers would take this “advice”, they just may find peace in their homes.  Of course, he meant this tongue-in-cheek, although I don’t know that for sure–just an educated guess.  Fathers and mothers alike should find courage when they read these words–courage from the Lord to stand against any person who beckons our children with a voice and words such as these.  And by the way “Glen” or whoever you may be, I will most definitely bang heads with you, until you’re bleeding . . .

Mother
Tell your children not to walk my way
Tell your children not to hear my words
What they mean
What they say
Mother
Mother
Can you keep them in the dark for life
Can you hide them from the waiting world
Oh mother
Father
Gonna take your daughter out tonight
Gonna show her my world
Oh father
Not about to see your light
But if you wanna find hell with me
I can show you what it’s like
Till you’re bleeding
Not about to see your light
And if you wanna find hell with me
I can show you what it’s
Mother
Tell your children NOT to hold my hand
Tell your children not to understand
Oh mother
Father
Do you wanna bang heads with me
Do you wanna feel everything
Oh father
Not about to see your light
And if you wanna find hell with me
I can show you what it’s like
Till you’re bleeding
