I Am Against You Who Done It

Rock on Jesus Hell is never full
Heads will roll God sees us as immortal.
Who Done It on nine eleven
Set Them up in their games
Burn your dead O heaven
Found guilty in the flames.
Do not for the number your soul give
Feed Them to the Fire.
Forsake the Foolish & Live
Serving them up for hire.
