Did you stand too close to the fire Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone? When its time to live and let die And you cant get another try Something inside this heart has died Youre in ruins One, twenty-one guns Lay down your arms, give up the fight One, twenty-one guns Throw up your arms into the sky One, twenty-one guns Lay down your arms, give up the fight One, twenty-one guns Throw up your arms into the sky You and I

Watching them come and go The Templars and the Saracens Theyre travelling the holy land Opening telegrams Torture comes and torture goes Knights whod give you anything They bear the cross of Coeur de Leon Salvation for the mirror blind But if you pray All your sins are hooked upon the sky Pray and the heathen lie will disappear Prayers they hide the saddest view And your prayers, they break the sky in two Thinking of a different time Palestine a modern problem Bounty and your wealth in land Terror in a best laid plan Watching them come and go Tomorrows and the yesterdays Christians and the unbelievers Hanging by the cross and nail But if you pray All your sins are hooked upon the sky Pray and the heathen lie will disappear Prayers they hide the saddest view And your prayers, they break the sky in two You pray til the break of dawn And you’ll believe you’re loving the alien

In the corner of the morning in the past I would sit and blame the master first and last All the roads were straight and narrow And the prayers were small and yellow And the rumour spread that I was aging fast Then I ran across a monster who was sleeping by a tree And I looked and frowned and the monster was me Well, I said hello and I said hello And I asked Why not? and I replied I dont know So we asked a simple black bird, who was happy as can be Well he laughed insane and quipped Khalil Gibran And I cried for all the others untill the day was nearly through For I realized that Gods a young man too So I said So long and I waved bye-bye And I smashed my soul and traded my mind Got laid by a young bordello Who was vaguely half asleep For which my reputation swept back home in drag And the morals of this magic spell Negotiate my hide When God did take my logic for a ride He swallowed his pride and puckered his lips And showed me the leather belt round his hips My knees were shaking, my cheeks aflame He said, youll never go down to the Gods again He struck the ground, a cavern appeared And I smelt the burning pit of fear We crashed a thousand yards below I said, do it again, do it again His nebulous body swayed above His tongue swollen with devils love The snake and I, a venom high I said, do it again, do it again Breathe, breathe, breathe deeply And I was seething, breathing deeply Spitting sentry, horned and tailed Waiting for you
