about

Angry at a God who could find any reason at all not to write a person's name in His Book. Debating doctrines of predestination and free will to find them lacking in harmony.

lyrics

Under your thumb we sit here
Silently and patiently and humble sitting still
Deaf, mute and dumb we squirm here
Patience child, you know I’ve got so many mouths to feed
Patience child, you know I’ve got to let somebody bleed
Patience child, you know I’ve got so many men to drown
Patience child, you know I’ve got to burn this city down

Ooo omnipotent power-trip
Ooo women and children first
Ooo who needs the devil anyway?
Ooo he’s quenching his hollow thirst

All in a line we stand here
We can suck the marrow from the bones that you discard
Toss us a bone we beg here
Sorry child, I’ve checked my book and you’re not on the list
Sorry child, you’re Jewish and your fathers got me pissed
Sorry child, but listen, I don’t wanna have to shout
Sorry child, my arbitrary will has left you out

Ooo omnipotent power-trip
Ooo women and children first
Ooo who needs the devil anyway?
Ooo he’s quenching his hollow thirst

Please don’t waste my precious time
Please don’t waste your precious time
Please don’t waste my precious time
Please don’t waste your precious time
