Monsters of Folk

La voce di Dio non è quella dei suoi falsi pastori che chiamano alla guerra e al sacrificio...
La voce di Dio è quella del cuore di ognuno di noi...
Mohammed rolling dice with Christ at twilight
And they hear their master's voice
They run to do their chores
At master's calling

Their job tonight
Re-write the Bible
For a whole new generation
Of non-believers

The pastor screams out to the crowd
"There's evil that must be put down!"
And it touches the soldier boy, he heeds his master's voice
His life is calling

Sweet soldier boy, the speaker's bleeding
He hears his master's voice
Do you hear your master's voice
Calling like the lady siren's call?

Sweet soldier, quiet, just staring at the ceiling
And he hears his master's voice
He hears the call to war
The siren's singing

Out on the line,there's something that strikes his side
He sees his inner child
He hears his mother's voice
Softly calling

Spirit soldier's mother hovers
She holds up a paper cup
And the sound of life and love
Fills her ear

You're only gonna hear what you want to hear
Do you hear your master's voice now?

Mohammed and Christ speak twice as nice
But the one that I like best
He sings inside my chest
I hear my master calling

(Callin' out, callin' out)
(Callin' out, callin' out)
(Callin' out, callin' out)
(Callin' out, callin' out)
(Callin' out, callin' out)
