  • Though I may seem callous" cried old Thomas Malthus,
  • "Paupers are better off dead.
  • That we have to feed them is something we need
  • Like a musket shot straight through the head."
  • Not much of a smiler - our man Wat Tyler
  • (Died for the working man's fight).
  • Was daring such a treason a justified reason
  • For ending his days with his head on a spike?
  • In order to see pearly factory gates -
  • We all learn our places (pre-destined fates).
  • God fearing people with minimal goals,
  • Led to the slaughter - "tools with souls".
  • Save us from hellfire -
  • Save us from dancing the Brimstone Ballet.
  • When the church and its leaders sought new ways to bleed us -
  • It didn't take them long to find,
  • Fear of perdition beats nuclear
  • Fission at making the mill-wheels grind.
  • Ban contraception - a shrewd move says I
  • Plenty of slaves born to suffer and die.
  • Say "Go forth and multiply" when you want more.
  • When you've too many just send them to war.
  • History's wounds will not heal overnight -
  • They pray for my soul as they set me alight.
  • Remember the maxim "Arbeit Macht Frei" -
  • Thought up by a christian with God on his side...
  • It's a hell made by christians with God on their side.
  • The work goes on in babylon -
  • Enslaving us from birth,
  • With promises of paradise -
  • They've made a hell on earth.
  • Save us from hellfire -
  • Save us from dancing the Brimstone Ballet.
  • Well I think that Satan was God's best creation -
  • He's kept him in business for years.
  • It's not common sense making mankind repent -
  • But eternal damnation it fears.
  • They're not slow to realise - they know every trick.
  • Drive human donkeys with God on a stick.
  • Tom Torquemada - he sings like a dream,
  • Lucrecia Borgia plays lead tambourine.
  • In order to see pearly factory gates -
  • We all learn our places (pre-destined fates).
  • God fearing people with minimal goals,
  • Led to the slaughter - "tools with souls!"
  • Save us from hellfire -
  • Save us from dancing the Brimstone Ballet
