light your lamp

they say eureka gold will save your soul
though the church died after the rush

the salesman, swindler, and the preacher too
all say they have the touch

they’ll take your money and they’ll take your soul
but first take my advice

you’d better know which side you’re fighting for
before you roll those dice

blinking lights and neon signs all seem to say
this is your promised land

before you gamble with salvation you best pray
you’re holding the right hand

some devils look like men of God
who claim to save the willing
with sights not set on your redemption
but on your only schilling

when those men of God come calling
followed by their minions

when their friendly words touch naive hearts
they can change opinions

when their caravan rolls into your hometown
they set up holy camp

and when the stars fall from a lonely, lonely sky
be sure to light your lamp

some devils look like men of God
who claim to save the willing
with sights not set on your redemption
but on your only schilling

beware the man who prays for you
he may be the same who preys on you

some devils look like men of God
who claim to save the willing
with sights not set on your redemption
but on your only schilling
