Apologetix – Don't Fear The People lyrics

Parody of "(Don't Fear) the Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult

Fallen times have come. We can't turn and run
Stephen didn't fear the people,
Not even when they stoned him to death
We can be like he was

C'mon baby
(Don't fear the people)
Baby, take your stand
(Don't fear the people)
And be ready to die
(Don't fear the people)

Baby, they're just men
When the fire was done, Nero burned Christians
Rome of old was full of men
Martyred for their Christianity
(Rome of old was full of men)
Although they tried they couldn't kill them anyway
(Rome of old was full of men)
The more that died the more that came to take their place
(Read in your history book)
And now the Coliseum is an empty place
(We can be like they were)


Harken to the one- who was God's own son:
Fear not man in his madness
Who if he killed your body couldn't go on
The Lord's the only one that you should fear
The person who first put you here
Who can certainly do something more severe
(When you're thrown in the gave)
C'mon baby
(That's the one to fear)
Defend the faith
(Like the martyrs who died)
Let's get back to the faith they had
(We can become like they were)
They had taken a stand
(We can become like they were)
C'mon baby
(Don't fear the people)

Matthew 10: 28-Do not be afraid of those who kill the
Body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the
One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.
