about

On the intersection between petroleum and the Abrahamic religions.

lyrics

God is a desert
Sands wrap his greatest gift
Dark liquid of sun
Lies just beneath the rift

Unite with bloodshed
These holy, holiest lands
Navigate it’s soul
With holy, holiest hands

In this luscious pursuit
Our kin, they will live on
Through man’s holy dispute
Our dreams, they will move on

(From the ashes of truth)
Our eyes, they will dissolve)

Fight for blessed sun
Cast fires unto them
Take our needy hands
Through these, these chosen sands

Burn this blood in earth
Lest enemies do the same
The scriptures foretold
That it is in our name

And the suited news man tells you that
it’s for you and me

And the tall tale fable speaks in tongues
preaching that it’s for you and me

And the sky bleeds red and orange for
half a century for all to see

And the earth spits hollowed out of
all its blood the world is now falling down

falling down
falling down
falling down
