Lyrics:Sacrificial Bonfire

by XTC

"Fire!" they cried
So evil must die
And yields are good
So men pull back hoods and smile
The scapegoat blood spilled
Spittled and grilled it crackled and spat
And children grew fat on the meat
Change must be earnt

Sacrificial bonfire must burn
Burn up the old
Ring in the new

Assembled on high
Silhouette against the sky
The smoke prayed and pranced
And sparks did their dance in the wind
Disguises wore thin with less and less skin 
And the clothes that were draped
Was all that told man from ape
Change must be earnt

Sacrificial bonfire must reign
Reign over good
Banish the bad
