You draw commas on the eyes of madonnas
Statues of the Virgin Mary, or Madonna of Sorrow, are sometimes seen by believers to be crying tears of blood, which look a lot like a “comma.” Beck seems to imply that the melodrama of some people are so melodramatic, they attempt to reconstruct history to make it more sad. A madonna (a noble piece of art that isn’t so bad to look at) is now sad and destitute. For example; “I KNOW pain, all right, my mom used to beat me.” When in reality, it was the occasional spank.
