The Lyrics

"There are many who do not seem to be sensible that all violence in religion is irreligious, and that whoever is wrong, the persecutor cannot be right." Thomas Clarke, 'History of Intolerance', 1819 edition, volume 1, page 3
Religious bigots are to blame (because)
They give God a bad name

(HEAVY METAL BRIDGE)

Eternal bliss is what they sell
They're promising heaven, recruiting for hell
Blinding zeal, with an evil touch
Makes them blow up clinics, airports and such
Oh, with their bombs and guns (yeah)
Oh, through this world they run
Wickedly proud of the damage they've done

Religious bigots are to blame
They give God a bad name
To force the world to believe the same
They give God a bad name
They give God (a bad name)

They want to discriminate
Against those whose lifestyle they hate
They may believe, 'one man, one wife'
But who are they to legislate others' lives

Oh, with their verbal guns
Oh, through this world they run
Wickedly proud of the damage they've done

Religious bigots are to blame
They give God a bad name
They'd set so-called 'heretics' aflame
And gave God a bad name
They gave God

(HEAVY METAL BRIDGE)

Religious bigots are to blame
They give God a bad name
It's 'manifest destiny', they claim
They give God a bad name

Religious bigots are to blame
They give God a bad name
When 'pro-life' bombers or ISIS maim
They give God a bad name

They give God
They give God (a bad name) (repeat and fade)
