lyrics

WATERED DOWN GOSPEL
words and music by Jeff Solomon


Verse1
Dark times stinging in my eyes like a rollercoaster rain
phone taps in a thunderstorm trying lines such a crying shame

Plant a seed, watch your faith bleed like a dying man insane
so many hopes resting on the schemes of another mans endgame

PRE
But it it is well within my soul
and I’m well within my rights
Just an old gold Oldsmobile
with new headlights

CHORUS
oh hallelujah and praise the Lord
I lost my virginity to a whore
been doing pretty lines with the false apostle
who floats me down the river on a watered down gospel

V.2
Belief is more than you and me, its communion of the truth
god told me not tell anybody he is only being used
he said i made you in my image now the selfie is a noose
and were all hanging from the same magnolia with a brand new excuse

PRE
but the work is here for us tomorrow
if tonight were on our knees
being thankful just to borrow
what we can’t keep

CHORUS

Say oh hallelujah and raise your hands
I sold my song to the devil’s band
shouting at the rain like a pentecostal
floating down the river on a watered down gospel

BRIDGE
Love lifts me high enough to see
the light of who i am to be

CHORUS
Say oh hallelujah I’m a lucky man
to live in the light under such a dark hand
the time is coming for the last apostle
to soak up all the lies of a watered down gospel
jyeah the time is coming for the last apostle
to soak up all the lies of a watered down gospel
