Down in Flames
Christians, we're all afraid of fire We prefer to suck on pacifiers Baby pacifists, we're throwing fits We don't shake hands, we shake our fists We're cannibals, we watch our brothers fall We eat our own, the bones and all Finally fell asleep on the plane To wake to see we're going down in flames We're going down, down, down in flames We're gonna drown, drown, drown insane We see the problem and the risk But nothing's solved, we just say Tsk, tsk, tsk and shame, shame, shame Finally fell asleep on the plane To wake to see we're going down in flames Christians, we mourn, the thorn is stuck In the side of the body Watch it self-destruct The enemy is much ignored When we fight this Christian civil war Let me pause to clarify Because I'm sure you're asking why I stand before you and proudly claim To belong to what this song complains I'm part of the problem, I confess But I gotta get this off my chest Let's extinguish the anguish For which we're to blame And save the world from going down in flames.
