lyrics

Blessed is the prisoner
Whose pleasure is his pain
Darkened was the landscape
Of his mansion in the rain
He said your body
Is a temple
But it must be built again
He said your soul
Is wild and free
That’s why it must be tamed

Beware the prophet
He will come
Claiming to move mountains
And the boulder
He will promise you the world
Then he’ll put his own
Upon your shoulders

Oh yes you are ready now
To enter paradise
Drink the sacred water
Take the ancient knife
I’ll lead you to the slaughter
My perfect sacrifice
I’ll take care
Of your daughter
I’ll take care
Of your wife

Beware the prophet
He will come
Claiming to move mountains
And the boulder
He will promise you the world
Then he’ll put his own
Upon your shoulders
