Lyrics:


We are not the sons of God
We are not his chosen people now
We have crossed the path he trod
We will feel the pain of his beginning



Shadow fingers rise above
Iron fingers stab the desert sky
Oh behold the power of man
on it's tower ready for the fall


Knocking heads together well
Raise a city, build a living hell
Join the race to suicide
Listen for the tolling of the bell


Out of the universe, a strange love is born
Unholy union, trinity reformed


Yellow sun its evil twin
in the black the winds deliver him
We will split our souls within
Atom seed to nuclear dust is riven


Out of the universe, a strange light is born
Unholy union, trinity reformed


Out of the darkness,
Brighter than a thousand suns
Out of the darkness,
Brighter than a thousand suns
Out of the darkness,
Brighter than a thousand suns
Out of the darkness,
Brighter than a thousand suns


Bury your problems and bury your dead
Bury your head in the sand
E=MC squared you can relate,
How we made God
With our hands


Whatever would Robert have said to his God
About how we made war with the Sun
E=MC squared you can relate,
How we made God
With our hands


All nations are rising,
Through acid veils of love and hate
Chain letters of Satan
Uncertainty led us all to this
All nations are rising,
Through acid veils of love and hate
Cold fusion and fury


Divide and conquer while ye may
Others preach and others fall and pray
In the bunkers where we'll die
There the executioners they lie


Bombers launch with no recall
Minute warning of the missile fall
Take a look at your last sky
Guessing you won’t have the time to cry


Out of the universe, a strange light is born
Unholy union, trinity reformed


Out of the darkness,
Out of the darkness,
Out of the darkness,
Brighter than a thousands suns
Out of the darkness,
Brighter than a thousand suns
Out of the darkness,
Brighter than a thousand suns
Out of the darkness,
Brighter than a thousand suns
Out of the darkness,
Brighter than a thousand suns


Holy Father we have sinned




This song has one of my favorite lyrics. It is a song from the album "A Matter Of Life And Death" released on 2006. It is about "The Manhattan Project". It is a reference to the detonation of the first atomic bomb. The title of the song "Brighter Than A Thousand Suns" refers to a comment made by one of the scientists after viewing the explosion of atom bomb at the Trinity site. The "Robert" in the song refers to the head of the whole project, Dr. Robert Oppenheimer. And the constant reference to E=MC squared (theory of relativity) refers to Einstein's involvement in the building of the weapon. So, this song is about the stupidity that we have done by creating something that has the potential to destroy the creation of god. So, we are not the sons of God.
