lyrics:
(emily saliers)


welcome to why the church has died
in the heart of the exile, in the kingdom of hate
who owns the land and keeps the commands
and marries itself to the state.


modern scribes write "in jesus christ"
everyone is free
and the doors open wide to all straight men and women
but they are not open to me


chorus:
who is teaching kids to be soldiers?
to be marked by a plain white cross
and we kill just a little to save a lot more
the philosophy of loss


there are a few who would be true out of love
and love is hard
and don't think that our hands haven't shoveled the dirt
over their central american graveyards


doctors and witch-hunters stripped you bare
left you nothing for your earthly sins
yea but who made this noise? just a bunch of boys
and the one with the most toys wins


chorus:
and who is teaching kids to be gamblers?
life is a coin toss
and of course what you give up is what you gain
the philosophy of loss


whatever has happened to anyone else
could happen to you and to me
and the end of my youth was the possible truth
that it all happens randomly


chorus:
who is teaching our kids to be leaders?


and the way that it is, is meant to be
the philosophy of lossb&

<sigh>
if only i could turn up something half that lovely and graceful i'd quit
college and lose myself in the woodsb&
at least we've been given someone who canb& j


g'nite all,
erin
