I salute you Christopher
I salute your life
How you played the dice
Your words will live in us
Timelessly insane
Explosive, fresh and wise
Some will just forget
Some will close their eyes
Some will turn the tide

I salute you Christopher
Whiskey raised and downed
You risked and you took the crown
Console yourselves
That a scientific death is better than a fairy tale
Of the eternal life
Control yourselves
Because the man in the sky is a tyrant and a lonely psychopath
Dreamed up to steal your minds

A horseman on a trial
A brilliant gentle wreck
With a brutal mouth for press
No submit, no compromise
Saint Christopher of the truth
And a destroyer of screens and threats
They will learn to see in time
They will think before they refuse
The civilisation rules

I salute you Christopher
I declare you as our king
Or queen, depending on your mood

    Song MeaningWell, it's not exactly hard to work out once you realise that "Christopher" is Christopher Hitchens, the famous 'antitheist'. So basically it's about Chris Corner's beliefs.

    General CommentI was wondering who "Christopher" could be. Now that you point it out, it makes a lot of sense. Really cool lyrics.
