lyrics

Church is like a hospital
We go there cause we’re sick
We’re spiritually sick
Our sins are the disease!
But lately I’ve been seeing
We’re not going to get better, no

We pull up in our fancy cars, wearing fancy suits,
keep a cross in one hand and a wallet in the other.
We don’t wanna get better
We want to spread the sickness
Spread the disease!

Pray to your Holy Father.
His name is Ben Franklin.
Kneel down before the Dollar.
You’ll never win.

You say your faith is all you need
Well it must be easy when feeding your family’s not top priority
Waiting up all night for these Black Friday sales,
and we wonder why we fail?

I want to be better.
But you don’t want to be better.
I want to be clean.
Cleanse me of disease!

Pray to your Holy Father.
His name is Ben Franklin.
Kneel down before the Dollar.

Pray to your Holy Father.
His name is Ben Franklin.
Kneel down before the Dollar.
‘Cause in this classist world, you’ll never win.

You say you worship my God
But you don’t
You worship a god of greed, a god of green
You’re green with envy
While I grow red with wrath and rage
I grow blue in the face
holding my breath
Waiting for you to change your ways
Now I’m green
Not with envy, but with disgust

Put up an ATM and call it a shrine
What’s your’s ain’t yours, it’s mine.
I’m buying my way to the top of this whole damn hole we’re in.
You say you live by the Grace of God
Looks to me more like it’s the Grace of Guap
Don’t you know greed’s a deadly sin?

Pray to your Holy Father.
His name is Ben Franklin.
Kneel down before the Dollar.

Pray!
Kneel down!
You’ll never win!

Father forgive me for wanting equality
Benjamin Franklin,
Unholy father of green tabernacle is killing us
