Kingdom Come

\"Forty-four percent of the American population is convinced that Jesus will return to judge the living and the dead sometime in the next fifty years. According to the most common interpretation of biblical prophecy, Jesus will return only after things have gone horribly awry here on earth. It is, therefore, not an exaggeration to say that if the city of New York were suddenly replaced by a ball of fire, some significant percentage of the American population would see a silver lining in the subsequent mushroom cloud, as it would suggest to them that the best thing that is ever going to happen was about to happen—the return of Christ.\"
- Sam Harris

Kappaleen sanat

Mushroom clouds with silver lining
these are the times you've been waiting for
seas boiling and the stars aligning
believers praising destruction galore

No need to worry, we won't be here for long
look to the skies and you see we're gone
you'll be free from our rational gaze
free to live in superstitious haze


Set the world afire
and the gods retire
Their work is done
the kingdom come

Hear the weeping, hear the gnashing of teeth
music for your god and for his sheep
You always closed your believer's eyes
faith was a virtue rationality a vice


Set the world afire
and the gods retire
Their work is done
the kingdom come

Brave new world, arising from the ashes of the old
we hear your prayers as the nightmare unfolds
careful what you wish, you were told
the armageddon's here lo and behold


Set the world afire
and the gods retire
Their work is done
the kingdom come

You ask why I go on 'n' on about this
"that's not what moderate faith is"
you blame I am shrill and strident
"oh why you have to offend"

And I answer you let's not pretend
that nuclear holocoust is an unlikely event
more afraid of mushroom cloud that I am to offend,
I'm sorry yes I'm sorry my friend


Set the world afire
and the gods retire
Their work is done
the kingdom come
