B 16. Placed on Pause ft Bobby Sahlen
Lyrics
Placed On Pause
© 2015 Bobby Sahlen & Starburst

Let's go down to the river, become martyrs here today
Worship way beyond redemption, trade some sins so we can play
On a mountain full of ammo, near a bridge we mustn't close
We've a bold impassioned vision and we're ready to explode

(chorus)
I'm dying now, you said so
Rising to a higher cause
You're lying now, I think so
But my judgment's placed on pause

Count my wives, they are a-plenty, procreation run amuck
Off the grid we make our own rules, leaving nothing to pure luck
Got more lawyers on retainer, so we'll never go to jail
We're a cult of our own making, come and listen to our tale

(chorus)
I'm dying now, you said so
Rising to a higher cause
You're lying now, I think so
But my judgment's placed on pause

(instrumental break)

(chorus)
I'm dying now, you said so
Rising to a higher cause
You're lying now, I think so
But my judgment's placed on pause

Under pretense of religion no taxes paid at all
We're an island in a country where our brethren hear the call
Where the women and the children abrogate their every right
And the reason to be living is to journey toward the light

(chorus)
I am dying now, you said so
Rising to a higher cause
You're lying now, I think so
But my judgment's placed on pause
You're lying now, I think so
But my judgment's placed on pause
