The missionary's position is clear
Break them down
Converting the savage Panare
Break them down

And purge them of all of their sins
Break them down
Whilst making funds trading jaguar skins
Break them down

The new tribe's mission and the Lord
Break them down
Are gonna fit them with a vinyl spinal cord
Break them down

In the jungle in Venezuela
Break them down
Checked shirts, radios, barbed wire
Break them down

Ooh, when they teach those savages to believe
We'll all be one step closer to world harmony
Break them down
Break them down

They rewrote the Lord's prayer
Break them down
And made the death of Christ the work of the Panare
Break them down

Nearby Darwin was hanging by his throat
Break them down
The fundamentalists were starting to gloat
Break them down

Losing their loin cloths as they gain ethnicide
All dressed in Western clothes and God will be their guide
Break them down
Break them down

Break them down
Break them down
Break them down
