Mission Of Burma – New Nails lyrics

There was once a special book
It got changed by facist crooks
(Save me please for I am weak)
There were once some great ideas
Now they're watered down too thin
(Save me please for I am weak)
(Save me please for I'm a sheep)
Well I suppose it's human nature
But when he said
"Don't make an idol of me"
"Don't make an idol of me"
"Don't make an idol of me"
The Roman Empire never died
(Save me I am not a goat)
Just changed it to the Catholic Church
(Dionysus has... ?)
The Roman Empire never died
(Have a... ?)
(Save me I am not a goat)
(Laughing)
But when he said
"Don't make an idol of me"
"Don't make an idol of me"
"Don't make an idol of me"
Plastic idols of me
Plaster idols of me
"Don't make an idol of me"
Well when I walk the shores of Galilee
Where only the spirit can talk to me
Well I walk the shores of Galilee
... desert, sand, no one can touch me
Don't touch me!
No!
Oh no!
Oh no!
Oh no!
Oh no!
Oh no!
What's this?
What's this?
All these crimes...
Commited in my name?
Oh well...
