lyrics

My father's in the kitchen
My mother's making tea
My sister's sitting stitching
My brother's dungarees
My grandad's in the attic
Some aunts & uncles too
I'm shattered and erratic
There's one thing left to do

Ripping out and rolling up the scriptures
The fire of Isiah makes me choke
Inhaling Revelations and Creation
2000 years of wisdom up in smoke

I like to smoke the bible
It makes a crazy toke
Those wafer paper pages
Go up in holy smoke
The wrath of God will find me
My friends and neighbours say
But I get high divinely
My sins are blown away

Ripping out and rolling up the scriptures
The fire of Isiah makes me choke
Inhaling Revelations and Creation
2000 years of wisdom up in smoke
Up in smoke

You like to smoke the bible
It makes a crazy toke
Those wafer paper pages
Go up in holy smoke
The wrath of God will find you
My saints and angels say
But me, I'm right behind you
Your sins are blown away

Ripping out and rolling up the scriptures
The fire of Isiah makes me choke
Inhaling Revelations and Creation
2000 years of wisdom up in smoke

Ripping out and rolling up the scriptures
The fire of Isiah makes me choke
Inhaling Revelations and Creation
2000 years of wisdom up in smoke
