Jacob's Ladder (Not in My Name)
(chumbawamba)

Jacob's ladder
Like the Sermon on the mountain says dumber got dumb
Hellfire and brimstone swapped for oil and guns
When we're pushing up daisies we all look the same
In the name of the Father, maybe, but not in my name
On this Jacob's ladder, the only way up is down
One step from disaster, two to make the higher ground

Jacob's ladder
And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain
A million lifetimes left dying in the sun
In the streets down in Whitehall, dogs pickin' at the bones

Nine eleven got branded, nine eleven got sold
And there'll be no one left to water all the seeds you sowed
On this Jacob's ladder, the only way up is down
One step from disaster, two to make the higher ground

Jacob's ladder
And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain, to be slain
And they sent him to the wars to be slain

On this Jacob's ladder, the only way up is down
One step from disaster, two to make the higher ground
On this Jacob's ladder, the only way up is down
One step from disaster, two to make the higher ground

Jacob's ladder
Puppy dog leader sooner or later
We'll dig up your cellar and try you for murder
(Repeats)

Interesting song.
Click here for a Chumbawamba Website that will help put things in context. There's an MP3 of the song on the site, too.

The light-hearted musical style makes the 'medicine' a bit easier to swallow anyway. I like it!

Thanks GUEST, and for the link Joe.

Not to be confused with the old (pre-Civil War) Negro spiritual, "Jacob's Ladder" (See Cleveland Index) in Allen (Slave Songs, 1867), Dett, Fenner, Johnson and others. Versions bowdlerized by Seegar are in the DT.
