Album: Goddamned

Goddamned
I'm marching to Zion, a camera in my hand.
I hear people cryin', dyin' for this blood-stained land.
The streets of old Jerusalem are lined with souvenirs and those buying them.
It sounds cold but I cannot see how this theme park has shaped history.

'Cause virgins don't have babies
And water, it isn't wine
And there's a holy spirit, maybe
But she would never rent a room with walls built by mankind.
Mary and Mohammed are screaming through the clouds
For you to lay your goddamned arms down
Rip your bigot roots up from the earth and salt the goddamned ground

Stand in line patiently to super-charge your rosary
Or stuff your prayers inside this wall.
We once had God trapped in this great hall
But we've been cast out from this place
They say a prophet floated from here to outer space.
Am I crazy?
Maybe it's me, but this all sounds like mythology.

'Cause virgins don't have babies
And water, it isn't wine
And there's a holy spirit, maybe
But she would never rent a room with walls built by mankind
Mary and Mohammed are screaming through the clouds
For you to lay your goddamned arms down
Rip your bigot roots up from the earth and salt the goddamned ground

Zeus was afraid of his girlfriend so he swallowed her in bed
And he bore forth Athena when they cracked open his head
Her brother tried to rape her, Athena got away
And when his seed hit the ground the grass gave birth that day
Now we all freely admit this story's clearly bullshit
No one will lay down their life or start a war for it
So throw your stones and pray
You'll be rewarded some day
I hope it all goes your way
But something tells me no one's coming to save you
No one's coming to save you
No one's coming to save you
Save yourself
From turning earth into hell

No one's coming to save you
No one's coming to save you
No one's coming to save you
No one's coming to save you

Mary and Mohammed are screaming through the clouds
For you to lay your goddamned arms down
Rip your bigot roots up from the earth and salt the goddamned ground.
