prepare to burn

when you say that there are angels
watching over me
i think first of their wrath
and flaming swords

if you read the book you know
they make fearful adversaries
i’m not ready to take my reward

find myself not so eager
to test their vaunted mercies
when i know exactly what i’ve earned

so sing to me no sinners’ songs
about the grace of angels
as i prepare to burn
