Lyrics

(Source: The World Is Yours)

What a beautiful feelin' is is to be real.
How do you feel?
How the guilty will fall,
'Cause they're guilty as sin.
Let it begin.
I heard it from on high,
Heard it was a lie,
Jesus die at crucifixion.
Lies from Emperor Constantine
To control your mind.
Lord, there'll be some resurrection.
The church had to apologise
For crimes in time,
For all the profits,
Overseeing slave plantations.
So it comes as no surprise,
The church has brutalised.
After all, the first slave ship, they name
It Jesus.
Some folks are hollow,
Got no tomorrow.
Happiness can neither
Beg, steal, or borrow.
Some folks are hollow,
Got no tomorrow.
Happiness can neither
Beg, steal, or borrow.
Where's all the art and gold
That the Nazis stole?
In the Vatican with his holiness the
Pope of Rome.
How the guilty will fall,
'Cause they're guilty as sin.
All this talk
Of who is and who isn't getting in!
Some folks are hollow,
Got no tomorrow.
Can't smile faces,
And the flock won't follow.
Some folks are hollow,
Got no tomorrow.
Happiness can neither
Beg, steal, or borrow.
