"The Altar" as written by John Oliva and Christopher C. Caffery....
The stained glass lights the way
On their knees the congregation prays
Collection plate is passed your way
Jesus looks down from the sky
A tear fills his eyes
In the fires of hell you're all gonna pay

In the rectory basement of sin
A meeting ready to begin
Something in the eye says
Holy father, you're telling me lies
Searching, Mother Mary finds the tunnels of love
Touching, in the name of the Lord above

Step up, up to the altar
Kneel down, down on your knees and pray
Step up, up to the altar
A priest, is playing his organ again

Sacrificial bishop cracks the sky
Upon the altar a virgin lies
No hail Mary gonna save you now
Looking, for choir girls and boys
Hoping, he just wants a brand new toy

[Chorus: x2]
