The Face of God

The Face of God

Cardboard Carousel

Lyrics

Mars says mothers give me your sons

Bullets whistle through the battlefield

Steel dragons fire bombs

Sacrifice them all to the guns they hold

On an altar of barbed wire

Those who live for war die by fire

If you live for two kingdoms

One will fall

But You made Your throne an electric chair

As we cried you're no king, ours is Cesar

And as we murdered the innocent man

You cried

Father, forgive them

Their transgressions

On their wide road

See the crucifixion

The man of affliction

See the face of God

Oh this world is on fire

When governments are crooks and liars

We got

Fake news and slave shoes

When speaking gets you tear gassed

But murder gets you a free pass

So

Long as you are white or blue

But You made Your throne an electric chair

As we cried you're no king, ours is Cesar

And as we slaughtered the innocent Lamb

You cried

Father, forgive them

Their transgressions

On their wide road

See the crucifixion

The man of affliction

See the face of God

May Mars and Mammon

Come crashing to the ground

And the kingdom of Love

Be earthbound

Then my friend

My Friend

You've seen the face of God

For every mood
