    Williams' 8th full length release once again finds him croaking through subjects no one else will sing about. It's not just the usual taboos, though he excels at them as a "foreskin melts like butter." There is also a singular elevation of the patently absurd: an empathetic human foot, a chiropractor who housecalls by helicopter, a clambake at the end of the world.

    As usual, many listeners will just say "Why?" while a loyal minority will recognize each of these tunes as the one thing they've waited for their entire lives. Musically, David's notorious sense of infectious melody flows through, whether supported by overlapping arpeggiators, overwrought orchestration or even his occasional OG piano plodding.

    His krankenschwester quackadoodle coughalong tradition of novelty numbers continues as well, with the spirited singalong "Marquis De Sade was a Sadist." Does Margaret Sanger really live in Heaven? Find out here.

Margaret Sanger died while dreaming things we take for granted:
her bold abortuaries in every corner of the planet.
Murder factories for modest means and even smaller
for children of three inches with no need for growing taller.

Then Margaret Sanger went to hell. Of course, found no reward there.
Her scalded flesh in salty baths fell off til she was bone bare.
Molloch makes a meal of those who do his work most gladly.
Margaret Sanger sacrificed so many gleefully or had she?

May our Lord have mercy
have mercy on Margaret Sanger.

“There is a way out.”

Margaret Sanger was redeemed and shown by God the way home.
She fought through demon hordes with giant forceps made of her bone.
Finally, she came to Limbo where reported
live the souls of every boy and girl who’s ever been aborted.

She marched her children out of Limbo, passed through Purgatory.
And lives eternally with all of them in Heaven’s glory.

Margaret Sanger Lives in Heaven.
