Brother John was a car mechanic
And every night, he’d go home and panic
As he’d watch the evening news
He’d read the Bible from cover to cover
But he’d skip chapters and usually Numbers
And he feared God and the Devil just the same
At Sunday school he’d teach the kids Revelation
All seven-headed monsters and Horsemen and damnation
And it was the only time when he felt really proud
The kids, they’d go home and grind their teeth
Dreaming of the hands reaching up from the deep
And in truth, it was the beasts and the blood
And the fire that Brother John loved
It was the fire that Brother John loved
It was the fire that Brother John loved

Building Rockets Austin, Texas

Building Rockets is occasionally a band and occasionally a bedroom recording project.

It sounds a little like The Pixies and Wilco covering Fountains of Wayne songs while “Abbey Road” plays in the background.
