Mdc – Pecking Order lyrics

seems to be a problem The
people won't behave They
seem to fear our power less Than
what's beyond the grave The

clergy won't preach All
the doctrines we ask We'll
have to round them up So
we can take them to task We'll

blame the guerrillas for what has been done Burnt
church of Jesus the, death of a nun The

church has preached resistance For
what the poor hold dear Stronger
than the army We
sent to instill fear A

US torturer designed, just for you Agony
guaranteed they, know what to do CIA
assassins are coming with guns The
people will mourn for dead priests and nuns Kill
with no mercy men, and women of the cloth Ineffective
martyrs for the God they brought forth Is

their retribution only time will tell Agents
don't believe and the people live in hell We'll
destroy their faith In
their God and his son A
plain wooden casket destined for a nun We

will not compete With
religious belief Burn
the church kill, the priest Leaven
them in grief Unlike
their saviour they'll die with no cross Shown
their mortality they'll know who is boss Destroy

their faith in their God and his son Show
what we will do For
our power and money A
blood spattered habit Amen The
Death of a Nun
