Jacob's Ladder (Not In My Name)

Jacob's Ladder (Not In My Name)

Chumbawamba

Like a 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 picking at the bones

Nine eleven got branded
Nine eleven got sold
There will be no one left to water
All the seeds you've sown

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

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

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
