Lyrics:


God drives the dreamless highway in a black sedan
Picking up survivors, preaching to the motel man

Blazing Apostles, thieves in the night
Messengers of the fall...
If you are needing an angel of light,
Why don't you give us a call?

Death drives an Airflow Chrysler on the streets of man
A hit and run driver, cruising since the world began

Blazing Apostles, guardians of light, 
The 'phone number's on the wall...
If you are needing a devil to fight,
Why don't you give us a call?

Salvation brings a badge to wear
On the gladrags of your soul...
Just keep up with the payments
And we'll make your misery whole...

We've got albums of redemption
And confessions on cassette...
All on easy hire 
From the following address...
All on easy hire 
From the following address...

Blazing Apostles, 
flat 99,
South revelation row,
City of lost souls,
Land of the blind,
It's a wonderful place to go...

Saints on the highway, martyrs on the road to hell...
Posters make a prophet if you've got a soul to sell...
Chance of a lifetime, Join the legions of the damned...
Secrets of Egypt, Substances from old Japan...

Blazing Apostles, thieves in the night
Messengers of the fall...
If you are needing an angel of light,
Why don't you give us a call?
