Church, The - Numbers Lyrics




Oh yeah
Your one and only life
Ripped from the earth with these bare hands
You dare
Question the ritual
Despite continual
Threats of "gonna get you all"

1 law for the officers
1 for the gentlemen
2 bad you 3 know what it's 4
5 for this awful dive
6 for the genetics
7 for the lucky pricks who went into heaven

Nightmare
We ride for miles and miles
Following the howling of our prey
Out there
Reload our yellow rigs
Scrambling for shelter
Dig a void, decay

1 for the flaming sun
2 for the location
3 for the martyrs and the stars
4 for the wind and sand
5 so you understand
6 for the slips 'twixt the cup and the lips

["Come on!" is thrown in after the last singing of this verse.]

1 for the cockpit blues
2 for the Panzer crews
3 for the vast and molten sky
4 for the failed talks
5 for the knives and forks
6 for forbidden kicks
All the yobbos in the sticks

[Steve may be saying "10" after the last verse.]

[Female voice:]
[C:] ...10011...10011...
[R:] 10011...zeroes...
[L:] ...Mac AV, system overload, the audio engine was not able to process all the required data in time, time, time, time...

    brilliant

  15. chromiumveins

    Our good friend who graciously and nearly 100% accurately gives us their lyrics should be highly, highly commended. Here is one of the best sites in existence that I am aware of:

    http://home.earthlink.net/~mikefulmer/church/lyrics/church/16-aent.html.

    However, our good friend is entirely inaccurate in this song. The lyrics are actually this:

    1) The Church rules
    2) The Church rules
    3) The Church rules
    4) The Church rules
    5) The Church rules
    6) The Church rules
    and seven we all know

  16. Nastyoff

    The Church gets pissed and throws DOWN! When's that ever going to happen again? Great band, thanks for the lyrics, humanjukebox1958.

  17. MrTGTS

    So intense...
    A real masterpiece...

    Steve Kilbey has said it's not about 9/11, but I dunno... Sure seems like it could have been.
