Preacher, Preacher
on the black box upon the stage
Before these misguided kids, filling up their heads with nonsense
Of something greater, after all of this
How much more bullshit must we be fed
Hands up, reach for your money-made god
and, let the money rain down upon your pretty little head
We're all laughing at you, we're all laughing at you

I may be a fool, but I'm well aware I am meant more for this world than you
I don't wear a cross
I sin and I'm lost in denial
But what is faith, if we don't lose it once in a while?

Oh what a blessing, naivety is
Oh what a blessing, naivety is

I've fallen in love with harlots
I've danced before the devil and dined with wolves
If cleanliness, and godliness be the case
you haven't looked at the world lately

I may be a fool, but I'm well aware I am meant more for this world than you
I don't wear a cross
I sin and I'm lost in denial
But what is faith, if we don't lose it once in a while
Woah, woah, woah, woah

Oh what a blessing, naivety is
Oh what a blessing, naivety is
Preacher, Preacher

    Song Meaningi think the song is about religion and how it's ok to lose belief in god sometimes. because we're all sinners and our disbelief actually brings us closer to our faith.

    Song MeaningI think that this song is talking about how preachers pretend to be perfect and act like that they've never sinned before and never lose faith in God.

    General CommentI think it's about how the powerful religious figures in todays society are corrupted by their own selfish greed, and how they just see the people who believe in their faith to be naive (oh what a blessing naivity is). I'm pretty sure it's also about standing up to those in power, and letting them know that just because you believe in god, doesn't mean you have to believe in them.
