Burning Churches (Feat. Mat McNerney - Grave Pleasures)

Me and That Man
[Mat McNerney:]
That night I saw the flames flicker on the television set
The vicar's tears fell as he faced the cameramen
My mother grabbed her crucifix and drew in her breath
It's suspected arson, the newsreader said
My life was reborn into that incendiary darkness
It brought to mind the great writers of satanic verses
From that truth my eyes glowed with unholy illumination
From the matchstick spark until the final glowing embers

[Mat McNerney & Nergal:]
I'm called by the light of burning churches
I'm saved by the light of burning churches

[Mat McNerney:]
I was always the altar boy and never a thief
Part of the choir and friends with the priest
But it all changed when those prayer books went up in flames
Childhood on fire, consumed in the blaze
Now I smoke all my opportunities right down to the filter
I don't regret a single fucking moment of my future
And I know the devil better than himself
There's no good fun in Heaven
'Cause we're down here raising hell

[Mat McNernet & Nergal:]
I'm called by the light of burning churches
I'm saved by the light of burning churches

[Mat McNerney:]
There's plenty of things that should be left unsaid
So I'll drink some more whiskey and I'll say them again
My life is this war against their words
Slaves to salvation and prayers to their lord
I'll take up my seat next to Anton LaVey
With a Molotov cocktail and a can of gasoline
Oh, ashes up to Heaven
Beautiful destruction
I grew up by that light
I was raised by that light

[Mat McNerney & Nergal:]
Burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn
Burning churches

I'm called by the light of burning churches
I'm saved by the light of burning churches
I'm called by the light of burning churches
I'm saved by the light of burning churches
