THEY BURNT OUR BIBLES.

You better whisper, don't shout!
Don't know who's hanging about.
People these days better pause
because you know now there's new laws?
Like those far off days of old
we've got secret priest holes.
Clandestine churches in caves
and this other god to praise

They burnt our bibles we made more
pulled down our churches locked their doors
Took away every right we have
told us that our ways were bad


Can't be seen with a crucifix
if you do punishments quick.
Still hiding not found us yet
farewell brethren we won't forget
Christian Sabbath has been banned
no holding your brothers hand
Christmas, Easter don't exist
no more peace just angry fists

They burnt our bibles we made more
pulled down our churches locked their doors
Took away every right we have
told us that our ways were bad


Folks climb mountains for a sign
but there's no Moses this time
God be angry we can't wait
very soon it'll be too late
They've discarded all our clothes
for strange garments which they've chose
Our clocks have returned to zero
please Lord we need a hero

They burnt our bibles we made more
pulled down our churches locked their doors
Took away every right we have
told us that our ways were bad

This song is politically incorrect. But that's the point. Our society is so obsessed with being "tolerant" that it spurns anyone who promotes moral values from a higher source than man. 4th line correction:" there are new laws"

Travis,
Love this song--and no it's not ;politically incorrect. At least not all of it. Christians are at an all time for being criticized over things like abortion. Nativity scenes have been banned from cities for years. But I'm not going political. I myself can relate to the song--probably because I'm catholic. It takes guts to write a song like this--I'm glad you did
