Church On The Hill

-verse 1-

Far away from Galilee
From the fishes and the loaves
Capitalist apostles
Spread the word
Devotees to the dollar
Diluted dogma, a ceramic glaze
Tattered gospels
Blind man’s bluff
Reel them into the altar
Now, the spider’s lair

Chorus

Church bells no longer sound as gullible tongues do sing
In their theatrical charade
Iscariot’s shadow looms
Over the church on the hill
Church on the Hill

-verse 2-

Celebrity of the crucifix
Your clerical collar frayed
The congregation you persuade
With your marketing diploma
Cripple the senses
Numb their thoughts
Blindfold the cyclops' eye
Anaesthetise the soul

Chorus

Church bells no longer sound as gullible tongues do sing
In their theatrical charade
Iscariot’s shadow looms
Over the church on the hill
Church on the Hill

-bridge-

Evangelist
Twist the words of faith
Evangelist
To suite your ideals

Evangelist
Shepherding the weak of mind
Evangelist
To finance your greed

Pre-Chorus

My children turn your face away from the sun
And rush with me toward the darkness
Away from the shadow of the light
And watch as your shadow dissipates

Chorus

Church bells no longer sound as gullible tongues do sing
In their theatrical charade
Iscariot’s shadow looms
Over the church on the hill
Church on the Hill
