lyrics

There's a man standing outside my door waving a bible like a gun. That way of life might work for him but I don't bow to anyone, I don't bow to anyone.
Lots of men have claimed to have been the chosen one.
Strangers standing here in line waiting for my blood to change to wine. My blood won't change to wine.

I told him I was taught at an early age that war is justified.
I was taught about the indian, I was taught about genocide like someone's got to die.
we're all standing on the losing side.
i've read it in the paper and not let loose a word, they're coming home in boxes, let my voice be heard.

there's a many man who likes to cause fear from within, who wears the word of war from inside his devil grin. what a fool i've been. and we're bound to lose again. i've read it in the paper and not let loose a word. they're coming home in boxes, let my voice be heard.

i have told my story and i've told it all in rhyme.
i'll listen to your story take what you will from mine
but now's the time. we're all standing in the firing line.
i can't feel the warmth of my lover's skin
until we tear down this building and build it right again. and if i saw your god i would stare him face to face
and tell him i couldn't find a diamond
in this hellhole of a place.
