Fooled by Science (2003)

If church bells ring,
or when choir girls sing,
  then they will have stumbled
  while the others most surely will have crumbled.

because that is what in the terrorist's heart he does cherish.
  The pilot hoping his parachute will deploy

If we should happen to ever meet in my sleep
I can assure you that your soul will be mine to ever keep.
  Now that this experience is in my past,

  please allow me to exit here very fast.
