Nuns With Guns

from by Artemia



God forgives. Nuns don't.


I predict doom
As fools overconsume
Forcing us to exhume our dead for fuel
As we run on fumes
The smog looms overhead
Creeping as we put our children to bed
Fast asleep in their spacious rooms
Lavish homes
Recliner thrones
Remote controls
They loan us all the air they can spare
Keeping us theirs
A civilization unaware
End up nowhere
Blank stares
Unanswered prayers

Stick to your guns
Shoot for the sun
Don't let them take away
Your only love

Smart bomb goes boom
Nerve gas the room from the womb
Flowers bloom
Lining your tomb with sweet perfume
Bring the king to his knees
When I sing about the seed
That never reached out
To become the tree to feed his greed
Religion fails
See the priest pale
Gaze at the nail
Through the wrist of the terrorist
And lust for nuns with guns
Who never give tongue
They wish for taste
Don't know fun if it slapped 'em in the face

Stick to your guns
Shoot for the sun
Don't let them take away
Your only love
