lyrics

Jesus wasn’t born in Mississippi, he was born in the palm of god's hand
he died and he rose into the ether, he said he would be coming again
Well I don’t know if I was dreaming, but something woke me out of a sleep
With a crash of drums and a loud guitar, this is the sound of the second coming

Well you’ve been off and on with me, you’ve been all alone
You never even believed in me, you’ve been bought and sold
So here’s your final offer man, here’s your second chance
Help me send this message and I’ll, give you love at last

It’s coming round the corner, sneaking in your head
It’s coming when lights go out and the town is dark
So turn on tune up, the metaphors are in the book
and my voice is coming out, of nowhere

(so here’s how it all happened)
“They” came and spoke to me, now I’ve a message
Told all the city folk, but they wouldn’t listen
I went to the river, and ruptured the oceans
Loud is the devil but, golden is devotion - yeaHHH!!!!

Jesus wasn’t born in Mississippi, he was born in the palm of god's hand
he died and he rose into the ether, he said he would be coming again
Well I don’t know if I was dreaming, but something woke me out of a sleep
With a crash of drums and a loud guitar, this is the sound of the second coming

Jesus wasn’t born in Mississippi, he was born in the palm of god's hand
he died and he rose into the ether, he said he would be coming again
Well I don’t know if I was dreaming, but something woke me out of a sleep
With a crash of drums and a loud guitar, this is the sound of the second coming
