Oh Lord what can I do now?
Have I done wrong to You somehow?
All this failure in every station
Have I given You an abomination?
And I just feel like running away
Become a monk and pray
Cut myself off from everyone
All alone until I see the Son
Abomination strange fire
Don’t wanna be a liar
Oh Lord what a tough road
It’s even worse when I carry the load
I know I’ve got to give it to You
But I’m hearing lies that seem so true
I fear You now fear Your wrath
Oh Lord keep me on Your path
Abomination strange fire
I don’t wanna be a liar
Oh God I just give up
What a solution to my lack of trust
Life crumbles, I never heeded
You’re giving me what I needed
Broken now, build me up
Like You no one can sculpt
Perfection from formless mass
Eternal truth from dead past
Abomination strange fire
I don’t wanna be a liar

USA USA national pride
Next president might be anitchrist
USA USA thousand and one ills
Everyone offers a thousand one pills
Don’t need national pride
Don’t need national lies
Ain’t cornered the market on God
Gotta bend your knees and fall
USA USA heart to heart
Of, by, for the people, make a start
Away from the pride and the dollar bills
Adultery for which there is no pill
The Blood was spilled for all
For gains non territorial
You destiny’s not manifest
You can’t earn what’s blessed
Yankee come home
Facing hell alone
Hold out your hand
For the flames know no flag
