[chorus]
Preacher man wanna save my soul
don't nobody wanna save my life
People we done lost control
Let's make heaven tonight
Preacher man wanna save my soul
don't nobody wanna save my life
People we done lost control
Let's make heaven tonight

Now as I sleep, may the oxygen inflate my lungs
May my arteries and heart oscillate as one
If police come may I awake, escape, and run
in the morning may have the sake to scrape the funds
And if I take the plunge
may it be said that I wasn't afraid to shake my tongue
show the state was scum,
makin' sure that the callin' bell of fate was rung
'Cause if they could they would and probably tried to rape the sun

Someone said this is just a just my body, wait for the after-party
where there ain't no shutoff note and every wallet there is knotty
Feet on the asphalt, dick in the dirt
this system takes viccin' to work,

Listen alert
check out the introvert, in the corner with the rip in her skirt
Stomach pain so she's grippin' her shirt
Ain't never had dinner, so ya know she ain't gettin' desert
Don't tell me it's her mission to hurt

I got faith in the people and they power to fight
We gon' make this struggle blossom like a flower to light
I know that we can take power tonight
make 'em cower from might
and get emergency clearance from the tower for flight

I ain't sittin' in your pews, unless ya helpin' me resist and refuse
show me a list of yo' views
If ya really love me, help me tear this motherfucker up
consider this my tithe for the offer cup

[chorus]
Preacher man wanna save my soul
don't nobody wanna save my life
People we done lost control
Let's make heaven tonight
Preacher man wanna save my soul
don't nobody wanna save my life
People we done lost control
Let's make heaven tonight

I used to think about infinity
and how my memory is finna be invisibly slim in that vicinity
And though the stars are magnificent
whisky and the midnight sky can make ya feel insignificant

The revolution in this tune and verse
is a bid for my love to touch the universe
Struggling over wages and funds
let the movement get contagious and run
Through the end when it's gauges and guns
And if we win in the ages to come
we'll have a chapter where the history pages are from

They won't never know our name or face
but feel our soul in free food they taste
Feel our passion when they heat they house
when they got power on the street and the police don't beat 'em about

Let's make health care centers on every block
Let's give everybody homes and a garden plot
Let's give all the kids books, ten kids a class
and give 'em truth for they pencils and pads
Retail clerk: love ballads's where you place this song
Let's make heaven right here just in case they wrong

[chorus]
Preacher man wanna save my soul
don't nobody wanna save my life
People we done lost control
Let's make heaven tonight
Preacher man wanna save my soul
don't nobody wanna save my life
People we done lost control
Let's make heaven tonight

[chorus]
Preacher man wanna save my soul
don't nobody wanna save my life
People we done lost control
Let's make heaven tonight
Preacher man wanna save my soul
don't nobody wanna save my life
People we done lost control
Let's make heaven tonight

    This song is so damn beautiful. And it's true, we could make heaven tonight if everybody had this mindset.
