Jacob's Ladder (Not In My Name)

This song is by Chumbawamba.

Jacob's ladder

Like the Sermon on the mountain
Says the dumber got dumb
Hellfire and brimstone
Swapped for oil and guns
When we're pushing up daisies
We all look the same
In the name of the Father, maybe
But not in my name

On this Jacob's ladder
The only way up is down
One step from disaster
Two to make the higher ground
Jacob's ladder

And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain

A million lifetimes
Left dying in the sun
In the streets down in Whitehall
Dogs pickin' at the bones
Nine-eleven got branded
Nine-eleven got sold
And there'll be no one left to water
All the seeds you sow

On this Jacob's ladder
The only way up is down
One step from disaster
To to make the higher ground
Jacob's ladder

And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain

And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain

On this Jacob's ladder
The only way up is down
One step from disaster
Two to make the higher ground
On this Jacob's ladder
The only way up is down
One step from disaster
Two to make the higher ground
Jacob's ladder

Puppy dog leader
Sooner or later
We'll dig up your cellar
And try you for murder

Puppy dog leader
Sooner or later
We'll dig up your cellar
And try you for murder
Jacob's ladder

Puppy dog leader
Sooner or later
We'll dig up your cellar
And try you for murder
Jacob's ladder
