lyrics

(singing)
Angel, you have heard it said before
Cut the snake off at its head if you want it dead
And that’s just what we, we are both trying to do here
You’re sure this baby is the real king?
His nature is beyond our reckoning.
Can humanity and divinity be blended into a real thing?
Angel who, who are you, to tell me that I’m being foolish?
Angel why do you think this baby has the right to rule me?

Dragon, if you really don’t believe
In the greatness of this child’s deity
Then why disrupt, why disrupt this Christmas Eve?
With you it’s just the same old story
When threatened by God’s greater majesty
You long to prove that God is really someone weak
And yes, as for this child tonight,
One day He will be crucified
But it’s not, it’s not yet time
First He’ll lead a human life
(The Shepherd Talking)
And you will be beaten
By a little lamb
Even you raging dragon
Must heed the Father’s plan

(speaking)
From behind the stable, the star arose
Having absorbed the dragon’s fire
All the brighter it glowed
Blinding the dragon, and giving the Angel the chance
To strike one of the dragon’s giant toes,
So that he was thrown off balance
Howling in pain, the dragon limped from where he stood
Then he turned and left the stable
He’d been driven off that night for good
Gravity had sling-shotted the star round the earth
So that after tumbling away
It reappeared over Christ’s birth.
It came to rest again over the stable
And throughout the country could be seen
Hanging like a lamp over a giant evergreen.
