Who Sang Puritanical Punishment Beating? Napalm Death

Napalm Death Smear Campaign cover art
Release information
Release Date: 2006-9-18
Genre: Rock
Style: Grindcore/Death Metal
length: 3:27
Automatons strayed from their flock
Cast as the embodiment of ruination

Resounding words from God
And words are all they ever are
Astounding deeds from faith
That never quite astound

Moral yardstick beats us senseless
Observe some wills being broken
Blocked the clear sight

Better an outcast than a forced sycophant
Better a head free from religious checks

No protection - oh well, take a slow s__ual death
No salvation through safe birth control (!)

Same s__, different habits - who gives a f___ing s___
This won't make the species unfurl

Better an outcast than a forced sycophant
Better a head free from religious checks

Slavishly steered by redemption
Stricken by Biblical wrath
When solutions lie in compassionate logic
Not hearsay but the will of man
