The Mountain Goats Transjordanian Blues Lyrics

sponsored links

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
