New Model Army

New Model Army - All Consuming Fire

rate me

Cause the rear rises up from the corporate slab

all proud and flawless for you

"Hello, boy," she says and the pack dogs gather

slobbering around at her heels

and the women all try to stretch their faces

trying to look more like her

and then chanting her name

they hurl themselves

into the all-consuming fire.

So onwards to the peace to end all peaces, yeah,

onward to Midas' hole

where the treasures of the world reproduce themselves

like a hoard of cancerous cells

you can track the spread of the virus

by the news reader's colorful attire

let's go there now, reporting life

in the all-consuming fire.

so save us from these justifications

every one of them is a lie

Pax Americana rains and rains

from two miles in the sky

men shave their heads

and pay at the desk

and wait for the orders to come

but there's still no word, there's still no word

there's still no word from the front.

And a billion hungry eyes they are watching us

from beyond the citadel walls

we found a thousand ways to burn up the planet

and we're gonna try them all

the captain abandoned ship years ago

but nobody thought to tell

and so the band plays on, we sail gently west

into the all-consuming fire.

Yeah, culture in two dimensions

is all that we require, because it burns so well,

it burns so well in the all-consuming fire.
