Fires of Hell - lyrics & song

Bob Leggitt | Monday, 8 August 2011 |

Fires of Hell is a high-production reggae track which raises the issue of fake religion, and the concept of religion being used as a get-rich-quick scheme. It was written in late 2000. This version was recorded in two separate sessions - the first in 2006, and the second in 2009.



You can say what you like, you're the image of the Devil
Plunging souls deep below the water level
Their agony will never end
While they think you are their friend
If money's bad maybe you should be the one to give away your funds


Before you burn in the fires of Hell.
You're gonna burn.


Running round selling Jesus for a pledge and a donation
Money talks, bullshit walks, that's the general situation
A simple case of abject fraud
Followed by a rich reward
If on earth there's a lack of social justice maybe one dark day


You can burn in the fires of Hell
You're gonna burn


Open up the gates let me look inside
I'll show the world what you've got to hide
Truth was dead now it's come alive
You can't shut me up with your sticky handed bribe


Burn in the fires of Hell
You're gonna burn
