Lyrics

MUSIC IS MY MOMMA

Momma isn’t momma just because of blood/ A momma is a momma when she gives you love

A momma is a momma when she holds your hand/ And makes sure you know that momma always understands

You know that momma loves you when she dries your eyes/ And a momma takes out anyone who makes you cry

A momma is a light in the darkest night/ A candle in the caverns of your deepest, darkest fright

My momma never really been a momma to me/ Hell, my momma isn’t even my family

The only momma that ever really momma-ed me/ Is the music that has always been kin to me

Yeah, my guts are made of music and my soul is made of sound/ The rhythm in my feet is just my bones rattlin’ around

Music is my momma and she’s always been/ My comfort, my love, my dearest friend

My power, my protector, my beloved kin

Music is my momma though we never shared blood/ Music is my momma cause it gave me love

Music is my momma cause it held my hand/ And music always showed me that it understands

Music was my momma when it dried my eyes/ And drowned out anybody who makes me cry

Yeah, music is a light in the darkest night/ A candle in the caverns of my deepest, darkest fright

Music never tried to manipulate me/ Music never told me that the world would hate me

Music never beat me/ Music never lied/ Music never told me I was Satan’s child

Yeah, my guts are made of music and my soul is made of sound/ The rhythm in my feet is just my bones rattlin’ around

Music is my momma and she’s always been/ My comfort, my love, my dearest friend

My power, my protector, my beloved kin

You can be my sisters; you can be my brothers/ If the momma you were born to wasn’t ever a mother

And if you gotta good momma, but your poppa ain’t there/ music is your poppa, when your poppa don’t care

Yeah, we’re brothers and we’re sisters if the truth rings true/ That music is your poppa and your momma too

Diamond Tough

Dark black coal/ life outta control/ put her under pressure/ give her no place to go

Deep under ground/ screams don’t make a sound/ the pressure keeps on pressing/ keeps on pressing her down

Dark black night/ shakin’ with fright/ He’s pressing down on her/ But she’s ready to fight

Pushed too far/ He’s crossing the line/ She ain’t gonna take it/ Cause she’s ready to shine

Come on, Sisters/ We’ve been pressured enough/ The world is vicious/ so we gotta get tough

Come on, Brothers/ Time to take a stand/ The world is full of boys/ But you can be a man

Dark black coal/ life outta control/ Put him under pressure/ give him no place to go

Deep under ground/ screams don’t make a sound/ the pressure keeps on pressing/ keeps on pressing him down

Dark black night/ shakin’ with fright/ They’re pressing down on him/ But he’s ready to fight

Pushed to far/ They’ve crossed the line/ He ain’t gonna take it/ Cause he’s ready to shine

Come on, Sisters/ We’ve been pressured enough/ The world is vicious/ so we gotta get tough

Come on, Brothers/ Time to take a stand/ The world is full of boys/ But you can be a man

Pressure/ and pressure/ and pressure/ and pressure

Pressured/ and pressured/ and pressured/ and pressured

PRESSURED/ AND PRESSURED/ AND PRESSURED/ AND PRESSURED

We ain’t gonna take it/ Cause we’re ready to shine

Come on, Sisters/ We’ve been pressured enough/ The world is vicious/ so we gotta get tough

Come on, Brothers/ Time to take a stand/ The world is full of boys/ But you can be a man

Dark black coal/ and dynamite/ a spark became a fire/ and she’s about to ignite

Breaking free/ crushing constraints/ sick and frickin’ tired/ of silenced complaints

Clarity is crystal when you’ve had enough/ This girl is sick of coal because she’s DIAMOND TOUGH!

Come on, Sisters/ We’ve been pressured enough/ The world is vicious/ time for DIAMOND TOUGH!

Come on, Brothers/ Time to take a stand/ The world is full of boys/ But you can be DIAMOND

Keep Quiet, Girl

Be pretty, little girl/ Be a sweet little thing/ Be completely unprepared/ For what this Hellish life will bring

Be hurt, little girl/ Be abused, little one/ But be completely silent/ Keep those pretty pink lips mum

Keep quiet, girl… Mmmmmmmmmm

She was raised with the Bible/ with beatings to enforce/ Momma bathed her in bleach/ To keep that child pure

Daddy sewed her clothes/ covered her head to toe/ to make sure not an inch of her/ would ever show

Keep quiet, girl… Mmmmmmmmmm

But Momma’s Daddy shot himself/ and all hell broke loose/ Daddy locked his daughter out/ to free her from abuse

She was homeless/ she was scared/ from brainwashed and sheltered/ she was desperately unprepared

Keep quiet, girl… Mmmmmmmmmm

And a wolf on the prowl/ helped her drink her pain away/ then carried her to his bedroom/ and had his way

She fought and she spit/ But the gun by the bed/ told her she better take it/ or else she’d be dead

Keep quiet, girl… Mmmmmmmmmm

Now no one wants to know/ No one wants to hear/ What goes on behind closed doors/ Is hers alone to fear

She was saving herself/ until she was a wife/ But who would want her now?/ A blemished, broken bride?

Keep quiet, girl… Mmmmmmmmmm

She tried to keep the secret/ She locked it up in chains/ She smiled at every stranger/ While the hurt consumed her brain

Sometimes, when alone/She’d break down to floor/ Until one night that damned secret/ wouldn’t stay secret anymore

I can’t keep quiet anymore!!! … Ahhhhh!!!!!!!!

I will not be the victim/ I will not die inside/ I’ll have my revenge/ I still have my pride

I’m a reverend, a warrior/ With a savage vengeance/ Wolf, I’m going to kill you/ So you better seek repentance 

I can’t keep quiet anymore!!! … Ahhhhh!!!!!!!!!

I’ve been beaten/ I’ve been abused/ But I’m powerful/ And on the loose

If you’ve been beaten/ And you’ve been bruised/ Make pain your power/ You’ve got nothin’ to lose!!!

You can’t keep quiet anymore!!!! … Ahhhh!!!!

We can’t keep quiet anymore!!!! … Ahhhhhh!!!!!

Remember you are vindicated/ Remember you’re appreciated/ Remember if you’re ever hurt/ Make sure that you reciprocate it

I won’t keep quiet anymore.

Reverend’s Revenge

Copyright 2014 – Reverend Mad Hicks

Little ladies beware/ Keep away from men/ They’ll want to see your bedroom/ And seduce you into sin

Ain’t no worthy scoundrel/ Every one is a snake/ Hiding behind a zipper/ Waiting for you to make a mistake

Mind your p’s and q’s/ Dot your i’s, cross your t’s/ And pray that God will save you/ From the wrath between your knees

I knew a girl real well/ The boys all called a prude/ She wouldn’t spare a kiss/ Had a bad attitude

But her momma always told her/ Only a scarlet hoochie/ Would let a nasty boy/ Near her precious coochie

Yeah her momma always told her/ Remember this all your life/ ‘Never touch a man/ Until he calls you his wife’

Now one day this little girl/ Grew into a lady/ Was thrown out into the world/ A world that’s ruled by Hades

And like a little sheep/ Tracked by wolves a howlin/ This little girl turned woman/ Was trapped by man a prowlin

He took that little lamb/ Dragged her to the bed/ And what he did to her/ Is now the nightmare in her head

She got herself a gun/ She burned with bitter hate/ Why’d momma never tell her/ That hurt is a woman’s fate

She dressed herself in black/ She dropped down to her knees/ Said God just let me kill him/ Let me kill him please

And a voice came down from heaven/ Light as white as a dove/ And the Great God in the Sky/ Looked down on her in love

Said, ‘I’m making you a reverend/ I’m giving you my power/ Every man that hurts a woman/ Before you, Girl, will cower

You burn that bastard up/ You show him how it feels/ You’re my reverend of revenge/ I have heard your appeal

So she went and shot her nightmare/ Put a bullet through his head/ So God can judge him now/ Cause that wolf is down and dead

And I’m the reverend now a singing/ I killed that bastard with a song/ If you’ve got a wolf, just tell me/ He’ll be dead before long

I want you to remember, girls/ You’ll never be the sheep/ Cause I’ll be your Reverend/ That’s a promise that I’ll keep

Remember you are vindicated/ Remember you’re appreciated/ Remember if you’re ever hurt/ Make sure that your reciprocate it
