Christians, we're all afraid of fire, we prefer to suck on pacifiers
Baby pacifists, we're throwing fits
We don't shake hands, we shake our fists
We're cannibals, we watch our brothers fall
We eat our own, the bones and all

Finally fell asleep on the plane
To wake to see we're going down in flames
Down in flames
We're going down, down, down in flames
Drown, drown, drown insane

We see the problem and the risk
But nothing's solved
We just say, "Tisk, tisk, tisk"
And, "Shame, shame, shame"

Finally fell asleep on the plane
To wake to see we're going down in flames
Down in flames, let's go

Christians, we mourn, the thorn is stuck
In the side of the body, watch it self-destruct
The enemy is much ignored when we fight this Christian civil war
We're cannibals, we watch our brothers fall
We eat our own, the bones and all

Finally fell asleep on the plane
To wake to see we're going down in flames
Down in flames
We're going down, down, down in flames
Drown, drown, drown insane

We see the problem and the risk
But nothing's solved
We just say, "Tisk, tisk, tisk"
And, "Shame, shame, shame"

Finally fell asleep on the plane
To wake to see we're going down in flames
Down in flames

Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na, na na na na
Na na na na, na na na na

Let me pause to clarify 'cause I'm sure you're askin', "Why?"
I stand before you and proudly claim
To belong to what this song complains
I'm part of the problem, I confess but I gotta get this off my chest
Let's extinguish the anguish for which we're to blame
And save the world from going down in flames

Let me pause to clarify 'cause I'm sure you're askin', "Why?"
I stand before you and proudly claim
To belong to what this song complains
I'm part of the problem, I confess but I gotta get this off my chest
Let's extinguish the anguish for which we're to blame
And save the world from going down in flames
