Can U Dig It?

“Are you ready Jesus?
Uh huh
Buddha?
Yeah
Muhammad?
Ok
Well, I like this
Let’s Go

They’re 5 miles high as the crow flies
Leaving vapor trails against a blood red sky
Moving in from the East towards the West
With Balaclava helmets over their heads, yes

But if you think that Jesus Christ is coming
Honey you’ve got another thing coming
If he ever finds out who’s hi-jacked his name
He’ll cut out his heart and turn in his grave

Islam is rising
The Christians mobilizing
The world is on its elbows and knees
It’s forgotten the message and worships the creeds

It’s war, she cried
It’s war, she cried
This is war
Drop your possessions all you simple folk
You’ll fight them on the beaches in your underclothes
You’ll thank the good Lord for raising the Union Jack
You’ll watch the ships sail out of harbor
And the bodies come floating back
Watch the ships sail out of harbor
And the bodies come floating back

But if you think that Jesus Christ is coming
Honey you’ve got another thing coming
If he ever finds out who’s hi-jacked his name
He’ll cut out his heart and turn in his grave

Islam is rising
The Christians mobilizing
The world is on its elbows and knees
It’s forgotten the message and worships the creeds

“Get the gun, get the gun, get the gun”
“Stay away from the gun, stay away from the gun”

If the real Jesus Christ were to stand up today
He’d be gunned down cold by the CIA
Oh, the lights that now burn brightest behind stained glass
Will cast the darkest shadows upon the human heart
But God didn’t build himself that throne
God doesn’t live in Israel or Rome
God doesn’t belong to the Yankee dollar
God doesn’t plant the bombs for Hezbollah
God doesn’t even go to church
And God won’t send us down to Allah to burn
God will remind us what we already know
That the human race is about to reap what it’s sown

Islam is rising
The Christians mobilizing
The world is on its elbows and knees
It’s forgotten the message and worships the creeds

The world is on its elbows and knees
It’s forgotten the message and worships the creeds
The world is on its elbows and knees
It’s forgotten the message and worships the creeds
The world is on its elbows and knees
It’s forgotten the message and worships the creeds

Armageddon days are here again
Armageddon days are here again
Armageddon days are here again
Armageddon days are here”
