The Lyrics

When they knock at your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your ears
Or on the Bible from your desk

When your time come
How you gonna go?
Praying to the Lord
Or cursing at someone

You can curse them
You can hurt them
But you'll have to answer to
Oh, the nuns of Brixton

The preaching sounds bad
And their lives you despise them well
But surely your time will come
Either in Heaven or in hell

You see, they preach like Moses
Born under the Brixton sun
Their game is called a sermon
At the end of the faith, will they come?

You know it means no mercy
They caught you with a headache
Lots of need for the Tylenol
Goodbye to the Brixton peace

You can curse them
You can hurt them
Yes even scare them
But oh, the nuns of Brixton

When they knock at your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your ears
Or the Bible from your desk
Nuns sometimes go preaching door-to-door, but people hardly ever convert, and some people think they are annoying. What I meant by the lyrics, "At the end of the faith, will they come?" was, that, if they were all still alive when the Catholic faith is gone, and if there were to be a formal ceremony for it, would they go, or stay at home and mourn?
