"Sacrificial Bonfire" is a song by Colin Moulding. It appeared on the 1986 album Skylarking.


Fire they cried

So evil must die

And yields are good

So men pull back hoods and smile

The scapegoat blood spilled

Spittled and grilled it crackled and spat

And children grew fat on the meat

Change must be earnt

Sacrificial bonfire must burn

Burn up the old

Ring in the new

Assembled on high

Silhouette against the sky

The smoke prayed and pranced

And sparks did their dance in the wind

Shadows wore thin with less and less skin

And the clothes that were draped

Was all that told man from ape

Change must be earnt

Sacrificial bonfire must reign

Reign over good

Banish the bad
