Thunder From A Clear Sky

lyrics

A monolith is fractured, its message refracted
Distorted when peace and love gives way to torture
And half the things for which you stood tall
Have now crumbled and tumbled down like the Jericho walls
Omnipotence does not give licence for decadence
With loaves and fishes piled high on silver dishes
They made profits from prophets and sold the words that they said
Now the lamb's become a hydra and they've lost control of where it's headed

It's like thunder from a clear sky, it's the darkness falling from the sun
If God is love then God must be blind, and cannot see anyone

The heads are castrated and growing agitated
Control is slipping from old fingers that are tired of gripping
The choirs are out in force denying evidence that would
Show their immaculate concept is growing tired and tattered
This institution's causing global pollution
A thought disease intent on bringing us to our knees
Now the tides of time are going to wash it away
Cos a thousand different voices leave you crippled today

It's like thunder from a clear sky, it's the darkness falling from the sun
If God is love then God must be blind, and cannot see anyone
It's like thunder from a clear sky, it's the lies they tell when they say His will is done
They love their faith but their faith is blind, and never loves anyone

So please accept my apologies
But I reject a divinity
That claims to protect but ultimately
Comes to nothing if you don't concede authority
So please accept my condolences
Cos your faith is ruled by appearances
And the word of God has come to mean much less
Than keeping power with the pontiffs in their palaces

It's like thunder from a clear sky, it's the darkness falling from the sun
If God is love then God must be blind, and cannot see anyone
It's like thunder from a clear sky, it's the lies they tell when they say His will is done
They love their faith but their faith is blind, and never loves anyone
