lyrics

Sweet temptation Lord done gone to my head
Quarter past last chance to know what the good book says
I hear the choir sing / Lord have mercy on me
After all this time so damn tired of hope
That only serves to shake a man to his knees

One step short of the path laid out before me
All gonna meet in the end you just wait and see
I hear the choir sing
Father watch over me
God I’m so damn tired of all this talk
As we’re led down a path by men who clearly don’t see

Push your words onto me
Proselytize to all you see
Don't question what is
Spoken through me
In touch from my hand

Sure enough all gonna pay for what we believe
As time spent in guilt paves the path I’ll shoulder your greed
I hear the choir sing
Tithe it all to me
All your wasted time spent spreading the word
Of a tired old book you’re too stupid to read

All your wasted time spent spreading the word
Of a tired old book you’re too stupid to read

So much wasted time spent spreading the word
Of a tired old book you’re too stupid to read
