It's a merry band of men
All the women home baking bread
Travel the nation selling what God said
Through the mouths of fallen men

But irony is just a tool
Of devils, sodomites and fools
So you pay attention only when it's borne in range
Of the buses you employ to spread good news

For all the lies you tell your children now
Make sure you never tell them how
God is not on your side

So here's a glass to tragedy
Or a toast to your favorite calamity
You'll all hold hands around the ruins of society
And curse everything that you can see

For all the lies you tell your children now
Make sure you never tell them how
God is not on your side

Schools and churches, picket lines
There's a funeral, break out the signs
For now you're stuck here and there's been no hail of fire
And in secret, you sulk, wondering why

For all the lies you tell your children now
Make sure you never tell them how
God is not on your side

    Song MeaningI think it's trying to say that you shouldn't be preachy about religion, because in the end god does not want you to be preachy and he will not help you. The lines "For now you're stuck here and there's been no hail of fire And in secret, you sulk, wondering why" is trying to talk about the rapture and how it's not going to happen because you want it to.
