Modern Mythology

from by Come Gather Round Us

lyrics

We can bring an army, or a loaded gun
Or a mountain of paperwork blocking the sun
The word of the law and the men who explain it
Some who can change it, Some who can break it

The gas chamber is primed
Species go in two by two in a line
The hours of suicide watch are extended
We have been chosen to rule

Sleep now and don't be a fool
Take your modern mythology

We can insure you invest you and pension you
You can keep spending when working is done
We can protect you from the foreign governments
All that we need is your trust and your sons

God eats out of our hands
Just keep on breeding and ploughing the lands
Nature's been swell but her contract has ended
We have been chosen to rule

Sleep now and don't be a fool
Take your modern mythology

You should be afraid
You could lose everything for which you've paid
But sleep now and you will be saved

Take your modern mythology
