Probably a bit late to help with RyanTurtle's schoolwork, but anyway...
"The Church Is For Sinners"
by UK anarcho-doom metal-punks AMEBIX
quotes from MacBeth.(Act IV scene 1)
"The Church Is For Sinners" - Amebix
The pulpits standing empty, the congregation's left
Because to qualify for piety they had to pass a test
How much "roughly" is your god worth to you?
And if he said "lay down your life for
me", could you give that too?
And will they never understand
That the future is in man?
The priests, when told of starving kids, look on in mock dismay
While thinking of new ways by which to make religion pay
Money from mass misery? There's nothing wrong with that
The church holds out a bloodstained hand to pass around the hat
"By the pricking in my thumbs
Something wicked this way comes"
| My grandad gave me some sound advice on his death-bed. "It's worth spending a bit extra for good quality speakers", he told me. |
