lyrics

ON THEIR WAY TO GOD (Words and Music - Robert Childs)

In the name of the Allah
In the name of the Lord
In the name of the Buddah
In the name of the Virgin
In the name of Jesus
In the name of Jehovah
In the name of Mr Jones
From Jonestown, Guyana

They're On Their Way To God (x 4)

They worship their Madonnas
They practise their hymns
Chant their superstitions
And enunciate their sins
But the sin of omission
In which noone ever delves
Is their own mortal sin
Of not believing in themselves

They're On Their Way To God

Say a prayer for the Saviour
Put a bullet in the child
Say farewell to the devil
To keep the pact of suicide

They're On Their Way To God

Sackcloth and ashes
Damnation and hellfire
Self flagellation
Until the day they die
If it's a question of creation
Their answer's quite odd
Who could put their faith
In a Man-created god?

They're On Their Way To God
