Downward Christian Soldiers

(Campbell, Carr, Dolfi, Farrell)

These self-proclaimed healers say to love your fellow man
while you're busy loving—they're taking all they can
TV crusader shouting words of religion
in the name of Jesus Christ they take all that you can give them
they write you long letters, they preach on your screen
condemn anyone who go against the words they speak
day after day the christian army moves faster
they want control of your soul—downward christian bastards!

downward christian soldiers / get out your wallet, open your purse
downward christian soldiers / they save your soul, but the money comes first
downward christian soldiers / they got your money, now they want your soul
downward christian soldiers / you had a mind, now they got control

the Moral Majority and the Club PTL
if that's the way to heaven, I'll spend my time in hell
donations flow in, the ratings they soar
they can build and brand new church, why bother with the poor
they got so much money, they invade politics
using smearing campaigns and mud-slinging tricks
a born-again army, led by fascist direction
how long do we have before they control the elections?

downward christian soldiers / Hitlers who hide behind collars
downward christian soldiers / they get rich from the sinner's dollars
downward christian soldiers / big business from the man who wears the cross
downward christian soldiers / good christians pick up the cost

a corporate exec lies and cheats all his life
now he gives to his church so that makes it alright
Jesus walked his last mile with a cross upon his back
today's men of god drive brand new Cadillacs
with war and poverty, children go hungry
while fat christian con-men sit back and count their money
beware of these men, the damnation they preach
take a good look at them, do they live like they teach?

downward christian soldiers / get out your wallets, open your purse
downward christian soldiers / they save your soul, but the money comes first
downward christian soldiers / big business from the man who wears the cross
downward christian soldiers / good christians pick up the cost
