There's a bullet in the heart tonight in the heart of Texas
Shout it to the Dallasites we are rolling home
They shot an angel in mid-flight and now she won't protect us
Shout it to the bedlamites we are westward ho

Pray the holy war is ending
Like in the films of Hollywood
And the angels are descending (important important)
Like Koresh had said
They would before too long
Sing a Lone Star Song

They had him nailed up to a T with a T for Texas
His disciples with artillery they held the fort inside
And by the time the story broke down at Dealey Plaza
We've already caught the smoke read the TV guide

Pray the holy war is ending (ending)
Like the films of Hollywood
And the choppers are descending (easy words easy words)
Like MA Reno said
They would before too long
Sing a Lone Star Song

Lone Star Song of the south
Words that can't help
But escape my mouth
When they bring down the house
Day upon day
Day upon day
Day upon day

Ooh ooh ooh

Pray the holy war is ending (ending)
Like the films of the Hollywood
And the trumpet's blast is blending
With the crack of burning
Wood before too long
Sing a Lone Star Song
Lone Star Song
Lone Star
Lone Star Song
Sing a Lone Star Song
Lone Star easy words come on come on

    My InterpretationThis song is about the Waco Massacre and controversies surrounding it; and David Koresh who was a leader of The Branch Davidian religious sect

    General CommentThis is a fantastic representation lyrically of the tragedy of the Branch Davidian's.

    The government thought they had a handle on it with the safe removal of a bunch of kids which ultimately triggered the mass fires/suicide just after, sadly making Koresh's predictions true to his followers.

    Shocking stuff.

    Brilliant track.

    General CommentI always thought the line was "Like Kruschev said they would before too long"
