lyrics

NOT A SAINT

Stand right next to the scum of the earth
and you will seem like a good man
but some of us still remember
What you did and what you said back then

Back then when the country was burning
When decency went underground
Your trademark Christian love and compassion
were nowhere to be found

You were blessing the lords of war
Called their crimes a righteous crusade
aware that powers that you possess
could have stopped that mad parade

A virus of dumb hypocrisy
Broke out on the day when you died
Killing the seed of the secular state
boosting worst kind of national pride

And they said you were a hero
everyone dying to kiss your dead hand
bend over backwards to praise you
Put all our lives under clergy's command

Chorus:
You are not a saint
You are not a saint
I just cannot cry
I'm not gonna faint
You are not a saint
You are not a saint
your golden shine
is a blood-based paint

You are not a saint
saints don't exist
outside of this right-wing nation
you will not be missed

How low have we fallen
How low our standards are set
when not being a child molester
is a quality to be met
