give us yer money, and we will give you hope
and explanation for what you can't understand
cause yer too weak to cope
eat this bread and drink this wine
get full of our stories and drunk off our lies
so you're not left behind
and don't let yer children think for themselves
cause if they think freely they will wind up in hell
sex, drugs and violence all come from TV
its not the fury we create

for all the lies you bled on me (burn a church)
for forcing me to believe (burn a church)
for blocking up our eyes (BURN A CHURCH)
im not scared to die (burn a church)

here is yer church and here is yer steeple
lets set it on fire and kill all the people
save them from the pain, when they find there is nothing to gain
from following the rest
knowledge and kerosene
we'll empty our flasks and kick through the ashes
and watch our fire gleam
so call and pledge all yer money and let jehovah's witnesses into yer home
remember kids, god is dead, and jesus christ never saved anyone

    General CommentThe instrumental breakdown at 2:14 is so tight; the interplay between the bass and two guitars is kick-ass.
