Waiting For The Aliens (Barnabas)

Seen it on my tv for the past couple nights Freaky, but it seems to be true Captured earthlings vanish in a flicker of light And there's nothing that the air force can do The guys at work all say that it's a message from space An omen of the good things to come An interstellar rescue for what's left of the race Now that the troublemakers are gone Its gonna be alright They say it's gonna be alright That born-again buffoonery has been dealt with at last And now we're one big happy family again Sightings are abounding, so we know that they're here To help us chart a new destiny They've done away with Jesus and that hellfire fear So we can get loose and be free They're burning all the bibles 'cause it's cheap energy They're turning all the churches to bars No more silly fables or religious debris We know our masters come from the stars Seen it on my tv for the last couple weeks Freaky, but it seems to be true Everything sounds rosy when the new order speaks Informing us of what we must do So we're waiting for the aliens with our hearts open wide Clinging to their every command They say they're coming soon, so we should trust the new guy Who wants to put that mark on our hand Its gonna be alright They say it's gonna be alright That born-again buffoonery has been dealt with at last Now we're one big happy family again
