lyrics

Keep the things you love from harm's way
They are in it anyway
Glow on the raiders' weary faces flows
Not from gold, but the radiance of clay

And don't forget to write the missionary
And tell him we're converted
Dig a ditch, call it the pyramids of Egypt
And leave these camp meeting ground deserted

I thought you disintegrated years ago
Instead you just eroded
Giant lion facing east but the sources of defeat
Are wind and sand, and the heritage site explosion

And don't forget to write the missionary
And tell him we're converted
Dig a ditch, call it the pyramids of Egypt
And leave these camp meeting ground deserted

A single finger to you lips is louder than this broadcast scripture
Nothing's everlasting, especially the wine
On a bed of dust we raise the dead engender flesh for sculpture
Eternity is a waste of time

And don't forget to write the missionary
And tell him we're converted
Dig a ditch, call it the pyramids of Egypt
And leave these camp meeting ground deserted
