golden domes and massive towers
false icons, show their perfect smiles

all joy and benefactions, they give it with a smile
big hearted deeds and wise words
they donate it all with pleasure
wise words of advice
you should pay the price

insignia of doubtful unions
an untruth factory, the Jesus industry

a preacher in a palace, deriding Luther's fight
jugglers rise to icons, fiddles play ingsaints
selling hope and warship mammon
blindness, fear, delusion - their intrinity
as you have paid the price, welcome to paradise

insignia of doubtful unions
an untruth factory, the Jesus industry

disbelievers, greed and wastage
Joel is gonna burn in hell

these disbelievers in a preacher's suit
success and happines they sell
accountants save your soul
as you have paid the price, welcome to paradise

I don't know about all sins and sinners
but Joel's gonna burn in hell

insignia of doubtful unions
an untruth factory, the Jesus industry

    General CommentThis song is not about the Prophet Joel. It is about the TV minister, Joel Osteen. Joel purports to be a Christian, yet he makes millions off of people's desire for happiness. His ministers and he have done tours preaching to sold-out stadiums, he shouldn't be profiting off of this if he was really a Christian, hence the "Jesus Industry". Joel Osteen hasn't even studied theology, his education is limited to a Bachelor of Arts in TV production. Do some research of Joel, he's quite the douche-nozzle.

    General Commentthis song concerns a constant subject matter of hsb lyrics, religion - in this case its based on criticism the catholic church (the Vatican) for fighting the Protestants (M.Luther), who have the other vision of church, religion and faith.

    Joel was one of the Prophets, Book of Joel is part of the the Old Testament of the Christian Bible.
    Quotation: "The prophet then calls on his countrymen to repent and to turn to God, assuring them of his readiness to forgive (2:12-17)"
    I think beacause of this words we hear in song "Joel's gonna burn in hell"
