Midnight Church – Written Between February and June 1995 (Aged 20)

Midnight Church

you should see the midnight church
where the sins of people become unsteady
and in the pews people start to lurch
they are unstable in a cradle
god’s house is corrupt
they have shepherds singing for money
just by jesus’ cradle
it is all about power and money
and it breeds corruption
for a lot of people,
it seems that if there is a god
he or she better believe real good
because at the midnight church
the cross is made of money and never wood
you cannot accuse me of blasphemy
i am just pointing out what you already know
but it is what you choose to ignore
because everyone is hiding the trouble
and in reality, not so scared of god’s law

James Garratt – February to June 1995
