Lyrics

There's a church on the corner of the street in my town
Where the blind lead the blind to salvation
They surrender their wills and the $10 bills to the sky

And it's one nation under god, indivisible
With liberty and justice for some
But the melting pot's only got soup if you follow the one

And they'll fill your bowl, if you sell your soul

    The spirit world is floating by
    You will live and you will die
    And no one knows exactly why
    The spirit world's still fighting

Palestine lives in confusion
While Israel burns in the night
And they all want the same, just a place they can claim as their home

And they pray to the same god above them
Who is looking down on the destruction
How proud he must be of the death and debris and the blood that is shed in his honor

    chorus

When Allah spoke words to Muhammad
He delivered a message of peace
And it spread through the land but then died by the hands of a few

Now every brown man is feared as a killer
And he's got no idea why
He's just making a living and taking and giving and doing the best that he can

    chorus

There's a church on the corner of the street in my town
Where the blind lead the blind to salvation

Oho, wow.

The chorus is by far one of the catchiest ones I've ever heard.

Absolutely great song! Thanks for it

I still hear "if you _sell_ your soul", maybe a mistake in lyrics?

The most beautiful lyrics I have ever heard. Made me cry a bit at first. You're amazing Josh. And another thing I love about your songs is that I don't have to pay to take them wherever I go. Thanks.
