The Lyrics

I looked at a cross
And shivered today
Now our city's in the fog of an old church power
In a legal play
It's the same science courses taught at home
When the podium's right
To priests for the tarry
Of sober peace of an old sinner's plight

All this time
The river flowed
Deities
Would agree

Two priests came round
Our house tonight
Since days of old, they offered prayers for the dying
And had the legal right
But the freedom of speech
Became so hard to know
This is what happens with creeds that act
Like a murderous foe

All this time
The river flowed
Deities
Would agree
If I had my way
Take a vote of the teachers
And that very old stand,
I'd bury it at sea

Dogma is the core
If they shall inherit the worth
Better to be poor than be a con man in a plot of the evil
As cruel words were spoken in swears
I couldn't keep from laughing
We live in a mixed-up world, and how could it need God's staffing?

All this time
The river flowed
Endlessly
But there's silence here
All this time
The river flowed
Even if Jesus exists,
I know that he never lived here

Preachers told us
The angels built this place
But then a war of rebellion caused an
End of the empire tumbling down
We live and we die
We pray to our gods
But yet, sometimes they don't make a sound
And our entire trouble is all that we're left
Is just no answers found

All this time
The river flowed
While we fall and fight
Over opinions
If I had my way
Take a vote of the leaders
Although crazy in congregations
They likely are better
In union
In union
And by communion
In union...

[continue first stanza as song fades]
