Lyrics

Machine Guns and Jesus Christ

Written By: Courtney Klassen

Would you think that I was weak
If I turned the other cheek
I’m not about to wait and see

They’re just the same as
We figured out where the blame should be
This is gonna hurt you more than me

Truth is we’re selling lies
Machine Guns and Jesus Christ
It’s true we’re telling lies
No love lost for you tonight

Grab the gun under my bed
It’s just for self-defence
I can’t believe what I just did

Car bombings far away,
But God’s on our side, we say.
When children die, he looks the other way?

Truth is we’re selling lies
Machine Guns and Jesus Christ
It’s true we’re telling lies
No love lost for you tonight

War on terror, war on drugs
War on people just because of
War on terror, war on drugs
War on people just because of your
War on terror war on drugs
War on people just because of a
War on Terror, War on Drugs
Yeah

Truth for truth and lie for lie
Machine Guns and Jesus Christ
Truth is we’re selling lies
No love lost for you and I

We’re on terror, we’re on drugs
Step in line with the jack-boot thugs
We’re on terror, we’re on drugs
Manufactured by the cops

One More Night

Written By: Courtney Klassen

No more empty nights, lonely days
But If I could be with you again
A moment just to keep
Close by me
As the moon and me watch while you sleep

Give me one more night
One more time when we could
Be together
Be forever
One more time to be
Inside your love
All of this I pray,
Give me one more night

When you said it wasn’t you, you said it was me
You know I wasn’t listening anyway
Just one thing I’d change
I’d rearrange
Would be replacing him with me for you now,

Give me one more night
One more time when we could
Be together
Be forever
One more time to be
Inside your love
All of this I pray,
Give me one more night

I never went your way,
‘till you came mine.
And I know, and I know
Oh, now I know that I,
I’m the one to blame.
And I know that you tried, and I hope that you just

Give me one more night
One more time when we could
Be together
Be forever
One more time to be
Inside your love
All of this I pray,
Give me one more night
