lyrics

Bible Belter, Arizona, Just a child possessed
In 88 I went on Oprah in my Sunday best.

Just to scream a verse about a generation of sinners
and something about adulterous sex
Recite "whomsoever, therefore, whatever"
and I forget the rest

Oh, they got me speaking in tongues
Oh, yeah they got me when I was young
Speaking this language I know nothing about
But every word it felt just like a punch in the mouth
Oh, now the damage is done

They got me speaking in tongues

In redemptive isolation - I was taught how to spell
Daddy said my generation, was going straight to hell
So I ran off with my baby yeah, she was a punk rocker
We got married yeah to have me some fun
Daddy disowned me but something told me,
That the damage was done.

Oh, they got me speaking in tongues
Oh, yeah they got me when I was young
Speaking this language I know nothing about
But every word it felt just like a punch in the mouth
Oh, now the damage is done

They got me speaking in tongues
