Blue Oyster Cult’s ‘Divine Wind’ for September 11 Day

I have seen the boys from BOC about six times, i think. The last time was at the Buffalo Run, and I had a goofy sign with this song request on it, but you know with five hundred people in the stadium it must have been hard to see because they did not play it. Unsure if – since it was written to protest the Iranian Revolution – they have wanted to keep the song’s profile on the down low. I can appreciate that.

Blood of bat, tail of newt
Wing of metal, gold or steel
Fight of health, flash of pain
Staff of life, or poison rain

If he really thinks we’re the devil, then let’s send ’em to hell

Fast food, fast cars
Fast women, movie stars
Time of trouble, time of trial
Turn to Memphis, pray awhile

If he really thinks we’re the devil, then let’s send ’em to hell

Anxious lovers, bums in the street
Jackals in waistcoats, men in sheets
Purple mountains, waves of grain
Grace of God, thy will be done

If he really thinks we’re the devil, then let’s send ’em to hell
If he really thinks we’re the devil, then let’s send ’em to hell
(shouted) If he really thinks we’re the devil, then let’s send ’em to hell
