He was standing at the rock
Gathering the flock
And getting there with no directions
And underneath the arch
It turned into a march
And there he found the spark to set this fucker off

He said set if off
Set it off now children
Set it right
Set it off
Set it off now children
Allright
Set it off
Set it off now children
Set it fire
Set it off
Set it off now children

Suddenly a shot
Ripped into his heart
He lay in need of some attention
And there he played his card
Going into shock
The last thing that he said was set this fucker off

Set if off
Set it off now children
Set it right
Set it off
Set it off now children
Allright
Set it off
Set it off now children
Set it fire
Set it off
Set it off now children

Alright [6x]

Jesus at the back door
Everything is alright
All we need is some direction
Everytime the wind blows
Everything you don't know
Turns into a revelation
And it all ends up inside your head
Time is wasting

Set if off
Set it off now children
Set it right
Set it off
Set it off now children
Allright
Set it off
Set it off now children
Set it fire
Set it off
Set it off now children

Alright [6x]
