lyrics

Light A Candle

Light a candle; ring a bell
Consult the numbers; cast a spell
Say a prayer and make believe
That something else will bring us peace

Blank the mirror; avoid the self
Seek redemption off the shelf
Abdicate. Escape.
And waste away on opiates

Scape the goat
Stone the crows
Fleece the sheep
And turn blind eye…

Spread the cards; worry the beads
Divine the water; read the leaves
Call the pardoner; pour some wine
Seek indulgence; buy some time

Absolve the guilt with ritual scam
Wipe the slate. Clean. Shazam!
Confess the wrong and it’ll be OK
To do it all again another day

Are we stupid?
Are we dumb?
Are we evil?
Why are we numb… to all the pain and suffering?

Scape the goat
Stone the crows
Fleece the sheep
And make out that no one knows

Chase the silver, chase the gold
Corrupt the young, forget the old
Divide and rule, pull apart
Insult the truth and go breaking hearts

Acts of kindness bear no cost
A little love helps heal the loss
So spare a thought and spare some time
For those caught in the firing line


Are we stupid?
Are we dumb?
Are we evil?
Why are we numb… to all the pain and suffering?

Scape the goat
Stone the crows
Fleece the sheep
And make out that no one knows…
