305 : 2/9/98 : Everything According to Plan

1,136 : 3 ?

I asked God about a million times
Why this world was made the way it was
Why the evil are not punished for their crimes
Why the evil man does as he does
Why am I standing here ready to connect the wire
That’ll bring it all shattering down
Ten thousand strong we mark the hour and wait for fire
All ready to assume the thorny crown
There will be no more beginnings now
Everything is going according to plan
In a remote hiding place darkness hides my brow
And I could be any man
Throw a switch and touch a fire off
Send the devil back his own
The world is turning over and its cough
will wipe out all the bad seeds that were sewn
Everything according to plan just like you foretold
The sinners fall down and the righteous arising
See the road to the city paved in gold
Here comes the fire for the new world’s baptizing
