Reverend there is a sign
On the church door today
Reverend someone is howling
And he won't go away
There's no light up here and I'm lonely
There's a sign on the door
that says I've rotten through
Reverend someone is howling
I see his tail through the gloom

Clean Water in the temple of the man
There'll be clean water in the fruit of the lamb
Won't you just take my hand
We'll walk through the store and explore
I want to enjoy the life I have

Reverend there is a choir
The Deacons gather the fold
They say a baby born without clothes should be clothed
He's showing his privates to us now
There's no light up here and I'm lonely
There's a sign on the door
that says I've rotten through
You could never dig a life of piety
I could never fall for mercy

Clean Water in the temple of the man
There'll be clean water in the fruit of the lamb
Won't you just take my hand
We'll walk through the store and explore
I want to enjoy the life I have

When you're high on your altar
And when you reach out to man
Purity is just your voucher
Sanctified means you don't have the balls
To stand with a man
who will run through the door
And the church gates are locked
when you leave

Reverend someone is howling
Reverend someone is howling
