  • This church is rotten from the top down
    This church is rotten from the top down
    But i, i am going to clean house tonight
    And it's going to go back into the earth it rose from

    These walls can't keep the world at bay
    No, these walls can't keep the world at bay
    Our time, our time is limited and precious
    But this place, this place is limitless and pernicious

    Would you all just follow me out into the open?
    Leave your coats and handbags, damn it all
    Can't you see the floors are smoking?

    This church is not long for this world
    This church is not long for this world
    And if you're wondering who to blame
    I want to praise his name with songs and feasting
    Follow me to the open field
    Where the truth will be revealed if you're really listening

    Hosannah, hosannah, i am saved by the blood of the lamb
    One day when i was lost, he died on that cross
    And i am saved by the blood of the lamb
