Pig Stole Our Golden Ring

lyrics

the church where i grew up is now a community center
museum in the summer and a shelter in the winter
on display are artifacts that show building's faithful past
and some of them belonged to mom and dad

oakwood baptist church is now for ration distribution
trinity cathedral plans environment solutions
chapel on eighth street was once a temple of the Holy One
but now it's just a karaoke bar

pig with a nose ring
pig stole our golden ring
on his way to babylon
i'm just complaining
whining and blaming
right and the left wing
there aint no thing
to be sad about

starving children die with sad and shriveled little faces
wildfires ravaging the world in diverse places
blood is spilled across the land,
the blood of God, the blood of man
only one can save us from this hell

how much more
how much can you take?
how much more
how much can you take?

pig with a nose ring
pig stole our golden ring
on his way to babylon
i'm just complaining
whining and blaming
right and the left wing
there aint no thing
to be sad about

the Bridegroom's coming to take us home tonight
(we're going home)

a thousand flames are raining down
from afar we hear Your trumpets sound
fire falls through ash and cloud
as the presence of Your love surrounds us
