lyrics

I am somewhere in the middle of these fundamental hardlines
Bending themselves backwards 'til they touch
There's just one fundamental thing, makes me want to stand and sing
That's The Source
But if you drink the blood of Christ, and it makes you feel superior
Then it's just wine

Holy, Holy white ghosty
Your old man upstairs got a lot of love its true
He loves your enemies as much as He loves you
Stop your bickering, listen to your Holy Father
You goddamn kids

To my drunken friends, you're beautiful, I don't mind
The way your mouths flap open all the time
But I mourn the loss of your ears, when conversation disappears
But it's just the wine, the goddamn wine

Shhh -- I hear quiet voices singing
What chance have we? We are the moderate minority
And who can use a moderate heart
To fight with the insanity of our leaders and our enemies
But there's more of us than we believe
We are an army, don't be scared to speak out openly
But don't just tell them they're wrong, you gotta be in love with everyone
Holy white ghosty
