lyrics

In the light of the neon cross
A suit talks up a god that hates your guts
The walls are strip malls, and the congregation calls
For a blessing big enough to catch their fall

In the light of the neon cross
The salesmen saddle up for your souls
With inerrant paraphrase
And the monetary praise
There's no way the kingdom's not what they say

Oh God won't you rob this den of thieves
Oh God overturn the salvation machine

In the light of the neon cross
A schizophrenic veteran prays
To a God he met today
In the absence of a saint
Behind a tattoo parlor in the rain

In the light of the neon cross
A crying kid recalls her mother's curse
"The things you think you feel
Are neither right nor real
And your father's house is locked until your sickness is revealed"

Oh God won't you rob this den of thieves
Oh God overturn this damnation machine
Is the great carpenter just another tool
That can dance to the tune of any fool

The fruit hangs so low from off the tree of security and certainty
The Phosphorescent crop of prosperity and piety
If by their fruits we should believe I'll take my leave among the weeds
And maybe from your buzzing pulpits I can finally find some peace

Oh God won't you rob this den of thieves
(Is the Great Physician just snake-oil schemes?)
Oh God overturn this vindication machine
(Or something else entirely?)
Oh God won't you rob this den of thieves
Oh God overturn this vindication machine
