The Lyrics

At Mount Carmel commune near Waco
In April Nineteen Ninety-Three
Branch Davidians congregated
And died in a sad tragedy
David Koresh was their leader
Many swore Jim Jones in disguise
Fed claims of their running a drug lab
Was dismissed as ATF lies..

Who do we blame for Waco,
For those who lie under the sod?
Who do we blame for Waco,
Koresh, Janet Reno, or God?

Koresh had offered inspections
His offer the feds would refuse
Complaints from one disgruntled member
Had declared there were children abused
A first raid would kill four fed'ral agents
Six Davidians, too, would die
For fifty one long days a stand off
As tempers and tensions ran high

Who do we blame for Waco,
For those who lie under the sod?
Who do we blame for Waco,
Koresh, Janet Reno, or God?

Then the tanks came in with the tear gas
Some later claimed flammable mix
Very soon there was disaster
That no one could hold back or fix
The church erupted in fire
Aflame like the caverns of hell
Seventy six poor souls would perish
And David Koresh, as well

Who do we blame for Waco,
For those who lie under the sod?
Who do we blame for Waco,
Koresh, Janet Reno, or God?

Koresh, Janet Reno, or God?

Koresh was kind of a nut-job, but the government did bungle it badly. Nice parody !
