lyrics

For the viral thought all the lines are crossed,
Countdown, two for price of one
Appetite, though full, so insatiable
Christ--little military son

Keep your murdering
Oh, your murdering
Wish you godspeed and all the best
Keep on murdering
Oh, your murdering
Widows made in ways so surely blessed

Here's to funeral weep and to dreamless sleep
Angels on their way sing their songs and pray
That what the blackness said is your only bed
Isn't there to stay

Infidels will shake and in two will break,
The tongue-tied masses come in vain.
When peace is nothing more than absence of war,
Blow it all to pieces once again

Keep your murdering
Oh, your murdering
Wish you godspeed and all the best
Keep on murdering
Oh, your murdering
Widows made in ways so surely blessed

Here's to funeral weep and to dreamless sleep
Angels on their way sing their songs and pray
That what the blackness said is your only bed
Isn't there to stay

Down, down, down we go
Where the cross is always bare
Force-fed a new lullaby
From the Book of Black Lung Prayer

Here's to funeral weep and to dreamless sleep
Angels on their way sing their songs and pray
That what the blackness said is your only bed
Isn't there to stay
