lyrics for "Hammer and Peach"

Anyone want to make any corrections?:

I don't remember
how we came together
but never in a month of murders would I have imagined the state we've reached
and yet when we came together like a hammer and peach

I don't remember
how we got surrendered
to somebody's hand-me-down hatred
that thinks with its feet while its foot's in the door
and yet when we come together we make such a civil war

you have to be naked to get clean
you have to be wicked to know what wickedness means
you have to be holy to know which way folks lean
and put the madonna and child on a float wearing union jack jeans

I don't remember
how we crossed the embers
not by asking the rich and the powerful
how these beggars strike their good will
and yet when we come together they say the saints feel ill

I don't remember
how they tarred and feathered
the ones with the longest memories along with the ones they forgot to teach
and yet when we came together like a hammer and peach

you have to be naked to get clean
you have to be wicked to know what wickedness means
you have to be holy to know which way folks lean
and put the madonna and child on a float wearing union jack jeans
union jack jeans

I don't remember
how we came to be together
but never in a month of murders would i have imagined these states we've reached
and yet when we come together, and yet we'll come together, and yet we'll come together together like a hammer and peach
like a hammer and peach (4x)

I don't remember (2x)
yet we'll come together (repeat to fade)

Is this on the new album, or is it an old tune I've missed?

Oh, I should read the forum more, just seen the post about it. Old old song.
