Reformed Zoophilic Blackie Lawless Needs Jesus Now
Metal Underground has premiered a new lyric video from W.A.S.P., allegedly for a song called “Golgotha.” I say “allegedly” because I think it was accidentally swapped with a Stryper lyric video — the power ballad’s very earnest chorus proclaims “Jesus I need you now,” which seems like an odd sentiment coming from a man whose obituary will almost certainly lead with crediting him for this song:
“Golgotha” won’t be such a surprise to anyone who was already aware that Blackie Lawless is a born again Christian, but I had no idea. So yeah when I watched this I was taken aback a bit.
Even with this knowledge, however, I am completely confused by the song. Golgotha, you may or may not know, is where Mr. Christ was crucified. During those painful final hours of his mortal existence, did he cry out his own name? Or is the song a metaphor? Maybe it’s just about Blackie’s really, really, really anti-climactic trip to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre? No idea.
By the way, Blackie, if you’re reading this: Proverbs 16:18 says that “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” So maybe you wanna re-think your promo photos, O Pious One?
