Clan Destined – Swinging Like Judas lyrics

Preachers cheating people everywhere I look.
Bleaching white the pages of a bloodstained book.
Two thousand years of dogmatised hypocrisy;
So now I think it's time we tried some new philosophy.

I'm telling you!

They teach of peace and love,
Yet stoke the sulfurous pyres of war.
Pray kiss this seal and glove,
That stroke drug-money, gun and whore.

Pious liars have all deceived us;
Bled the beggars, fed the choosers.
Our prayers shall have been heeded,
Whence ye sinners swing like Judas.


Christian, Pagan, Hindu, Muslim, Sikh & Jew;
Just face these fundamental facts I preach at you.
We've a duty to the future not to self-destruct;
We better learn to live as one or else this planet's fucked.

I'm telling you!

It suits the leader's needs,
When we fight amongst ourselves.
For their sacrilegious greed,
We'll evoke such 'holy' hells.

But just who'll give a damn,
For your countless hours of prayer,
When we face the fall of man,
Witness our children in despair?


Priests incant and Mullahs sing,
Of Armageddons they would bring;
Yet overlooked one vital thing,
Someday like Judas they could swing.

Hearts and minds the hate infuses.
None are winners - all now losers.
Walk the path that Satan chooses,
And in time you'll swing like Judas!
