Sleep Now In The Fire

by Rage Against The Machine

[[ riff is / A-G-A-C-A // D-C-A / ]]

/ Am / throughout

The world is my expense
The cost of my desire
Jesus blessed me with its future
And I protect it with fire
So raise your fists and march around, just don't take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed and smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow or I'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children, they'll betray you in my name

{refrain}
Hey, hey
Sleep now in the fire

{refrain}

The lie is my expense
The scope of my desire
The party blessed me with its future
And I protect it with fire
I am the Nina The Pinta The Santa Maria
The noose and the rapist, the fields overseer
The agent of orange, the priests of Hiroshima
The cost of my desire, sleep now in the fire

{refrain} x2

For it's the end of history
It's caged and frozen still
There is no other pill to take
So swallow the one
That made you ill
The Nina, the Pinta, the Santa Maria
The noose and the rapist, the fields overseer
The agent of orange, the priests of Hiroshima
The cost of my desire, to sleep now in the fire

{refrain}
